Pen and Ink on paper


The fabric of our lives is patterned by our Saviour, The Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus is Our Pattern and He gave us His Holy Spirit, symbolized by the crested dove of peace.  I only noticed the dove when I had finished drawing.  He appeared and I was led to notice the crest on the head of the dove.  I looked up the meaning of crest and it is defined as a plume on top of a helmet, it is sometimes upon the head of some birds.  It also means to come or to rise to a high point, to reach the top of.   Holy Spirit is saying he wants our minds to be filled with Him.  The scripture I am hearing is Ephesians 6:17

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (NKJV)

 When I looked up the word pattern I see that it is described as to make, to mould or design following a pattern, features consistent with the characteristics of an individual or a group, a plan to be followed in making something, a model worthy of imitation.  Jesus, our Saviour, our Redeemer, our Friend is who we are to be moulded upon.  He is the one who is worthy and we are to imitate Him. 

Our hearts have to be open to him too and I see that the dove’s wings are covered in hearts, 29 to be exact and for some reason I was led to Numbers 29 where it speaks of the three feasts – Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles.   He desires that our hearts and minds are fully prepared for Him. 

Two other scriptures came to me as I was looking at the drawing. 

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me (NKJV)

1 John 2:6

He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked (NKJV)

Imitate Christ, follow His steps, love as he first loved us.  Yield to Jesus, put your complete trust in Him and obey, he will show you the way through His Holy Spirit.  Let Jesus shine through you.  Flow with Him in His never ending story.  That never ending flow of God’s love and His grace.
Blessings and love
