In Daddy's Arms
By Ramone - November 25, 2007
This is how I felt (and how I saw it) as I relaxed with my son in the afternoon. He was falling asleep in my arms, and I was sleepy too, and we were listening to worship music. It was sweet. God is sweet. He is wonderful, He is lovely. He is love. And we are in His arms. Rest in His arms today.
This picture ("In Daddy's Arms") came at the same time as this one, "Spirit, Soul and Body", almost back to back, one after the other!
The first picture ("Spirit, Soul & Body") describes how I was feeling one day, how my soul was in some strange 'funk'. But He calmed me by showing me my spirit's position inside -- who I really am at my deepest, and what I am doing there. It occurs to me now that this second picture ("In Daddy's Arms") is the same, and after all it did come at the same time. In my outer man (my soul) I felt unrest, but He calmed me to see that this (the second picture) is what is true, the way things really are, and that I am held in His arms.
But I have stilled and quieted my soul;
like a weaned child with its mother,
like a weaned child is my soul within me.
O Israel, put your hope in the Lord
both now and forevermore.
The Lord your God is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.
I really like this pic. It reminds me of how God is holding me and how I'm holding the broken child within. Powerful painting. :)
