The Prophetic Canvas

A Place for Prophetic Artists to Network and Encourage One Another

Death is part of life but I believe letting go is the hardest part.  In the past two months two people in my life died.  My grandpa died the first week in November he had been sick for over a year and it was his time but it still is hard.  Two weeks ago one of my college professors who I have known for five years lost his battle to cancer.  To make it even harder I have been renting a studio apartment from him and his wife for the past three years that was connected to their house.  My heart hurts so bad and I feel all these emotions spinning and swirling inside of me but I don't know how to get them out.  I have five canvas ready to be painted but at this point I have no desire to fill them.  I guess this is just part of the journey of life.

wow -- my mother passed not long ago.  i had the honor of carrying for her the last seven months of her life.  i moved inb with her and tended her every need.  She thought that she was the one blessed; but as I mature in my rebirth I know now that I was me that got the blessing.  To help others with no conditions is a blessing -- and one I will not soon forget.  As a retired special forces geek I know death all to well -- but my thoughts are if i overly greive then I am not -- well my faith my be weak; if she is with the Father -- as I know she is then, I should rejoice.  Pain is pain and loss is loss, but through the Kingdom life must move on.  I am sorry for your loss but I truly believe that this emotion is what molds us -- "me" -- trust in the fact the the canvas will create an outlet for your emotion -- as if perhaps it is an extension of who you were, are and will be.

I don't have much experience other than -- walking through the storms of life are finding the beauty of the calm and cleansing of my soul -- just has thrunder storms and rain wash away the dust and dirt of life.


Just my two cents -- you're in my prayers.

oh, Stephanie, I know these emotions so well.  Yet, I know our God is a good God ~ I wonder if you could concider painting a celebration of your college professor as a means of healing for yourself and his family?  Or even ~ the colors of the sorrows you are experiencing. Sometimes another one may see it and sigh: "oh, that is exactly the way I was feeling that time. Someone was able to express it for me"  I just know our Father brings joy out of every sorrow.
