Words to Walk By


Comments Off on Adversity 15 December 2016

  • If you are on to a good idea, don’t let the winds of adversity and compromise steal it from you. Persevere! “So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely” (James 1:4 The Message).
  • Some adversities are instituted by God as growing exercises in our lives. “Though he give you…adversity and…affliction…he will…teach you” (Isa. 30:20 LB).
  • Don’t waste a good crisis, it is part of life’s homework! “Though he give the bread of adversity…, yet he will…teach you” (Isa. 30:20 LB).
  • Adversity is the sand paper that removes the rough edges of our lives! “Although the Lord gives you…adversity” (Isa. 30:20 NIV).
  • God’s goading is for our good! “Using every adversity to stimulate you to creative survival” (Luke 16:9 The Message).
  • Build confidence in those around you and reap a benefit! “So encourage each other to build each other up” (1 Thess. 5:11 LB).

The painting in my logo is by an artist named Kelly O'Neill.

If you appreciate excellence in art and are captivated by works that grip your emotions and proclaim the remarkable truths of God’s Word, you will want to know more about the very compelling art piece that is part of my ministry logo.

Kelly O’Neill is a remarkable young artist who very masterfully depicts the compassion, grace, and redeeming love of Jesus Christ in her painting, “Redeemed.” No painting has so grabbed my emotions and stirred my gratitude to Christ for His redeeming love as this one. Technically unparalleled, inspired, heart-stirring, and mind captivating are words I used upon seeing it for the first time.

Getting to know Kelly and the background of her wonderful work have served as great motivators as I launch out on a new ministry path in my own life. Kelly is also the developer of my website.

I commend her and her work to you and encourage you to visit her website www.TheArtistOfLife.com
