And i found a CONNECTION that i hadn't seen before.
Our lesson began with
Hebrews 12, about receiving discipline from our Heavenly Father, then went in various other places. It was a good lesson; Dee Brestin's alway are; i thought so when i prepared it, and i thought so yesterday, but i was charmed and distracted by this CONNECTION.
i should warn you that neither the visual nor the little article are particularly good; they're skeletal, really, but this is exciting to me. i wanted to get it out of my head and onto paper quickly during a busy time of my life.
Runnning the Race: We get weighed down & wearyWhy the heck is that? What's the solution?
Good Works: A result, not a cause > It's all laid out; just do itSo often i hear Ephesians 2:8-9, but it really needs verse 10 to complete the thought:
Grace > Faith > Salvation > Good Works (which were really there to begin with, but not in the sense you might think)
Or, as Amy Grant put it, "I only have to do what I can find ."
Run the Race, Walk the Walk: Same Source of StrengthAnd it's not a sit back and let it happen thing either.
There's exercises, a direction, and just putting one foot in front of the other.
Color Use in the VisualYellow: Trinity God (Father & Son) and their Creation
Red: Strength and Empowerment
Like i said, not a finished piece, either the writing or the image, but a captured thought, something to share & build on.
i just love when God brings these connections to me!
