Oct. 9, '05

By Ramone - November 27, 2005

On October 9th, 2005, my friend & spiritual brother and I took a walk together in a place that God has laid on my heart. I knew where I was going, and I knew it might be dangerous. But I felt the calling of "the road of compassion" (as Pastor Bill Wilson calls it). I had to go and I wanted to, even though it might be dangerous. As I was getting ready to go, the reality of the place & possible danger began to sink in. Knowing that my life might be lost that day or someday in the future... I suddenly needed to be on my knees before God. I spent a long time in worship and prayer, and had this picture. It's me, stepping out onto an old suspended bridge (because it's not a new path). My arms are back, because really you just kind of fall into God and trust Him. I didn't know what color to make the figure, but this is what I want: I want to be filled with the Spirit and moving only where He goes, following the burning compassion of His heart.

I'm praying that God brings His love to that place and to the people there. Please take this moment to pray for all the people there ... and for the wonderful thing that God is going to do there with them someday. Thanks so much.

You know what? To me, this picture is visually very hard on my eyes! It's a bit tiring. It has to do with the colors and the angles and produces a certain kind of stress on the viewer (like Edvard Munch's "Scream")... but I'm not sure why.

I painted the picture basically just how I saw it, except for the color of the firey figure. But the effect it has on me is not exactly a visually pleasant one. Lord, is there a message in this? I wonder...

What do you think?
Hmm. I take a little of that back. Yesterday when I looked at this in a photo, I realized that up close I don't feel that stress. On the computer it's harder to see that. But it's much easier if I focus on the figure and on the path (and not on the sky in particular).
