Xavier “The New House”

For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. Matthew 25:29 NIV

Xavier has succeeded in not being limited or constrained by the COVID19, but has trusted in His God who has restored him to life through his artwork and the people around him.
This also includes professionals on the matter of the mind

His artwork is also to help black minds matter 
To remove the stigma that we seem to think that it is a weakness 
It is for us to understand that the mind is complex and 
Not a weakness to speak up about it

It takes courage and strength to speak up on matters of the mind. 
It is not a taboo or voodoo or demon possession as people will like to think.
We need to accept it and speak to people that God has given the talents to understand the mind.
That is the way to healing
Speak up and don’t let it bury you

What God does for us in the ground is beyond what any man can see or dream. As I spend my weekend in an art museum taking pictures of the amazing artist who started his art work in the Lockdown. 

Links above to His work and social media page. He used his art to fight the concept of mental depression. God gives us tools to use when it comes to healing our minds, we have doctors and our own talents that we can use. From drawing, to writing, to taking pictures but we are never alone and you are not alone. Talk to someone to help but never ever sit and think this is it.  I give up, it is not part of our DNA as a child of God. He will never give upon you so never give upon yourself.

Everyone will look at a picture and it will bring something inside you, God will speak to you through those pictures or you will get a sense of it or something different.

Pink pic the brightest picture: This is my favourite picture: The lady with the crown

We are all children of God and that means we are automatically princess and princes because He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This fact will never change that you are a prince or princess. A prince can or cannot be a king but will always be prince. A princess can or cannot be a queen but will always be a princess.

The crown is with us always from birth; you are the prince or princess to the King of Kings and that will never change. Your crown is attainable and within reach. Grab it and walk as God intented you to walk.

Next favourite is – The diamond and rose:

When diamonds are found they are never polished, they are rough and uneven but very beautiful and precious that you will want to have it. Once polished the rose comes out, roses are different shades of colours, 

We are all God’s precious diamonds in the ground, rough on the edges, and hard to break. It takes a lot to break a diamond apart.

According to google definition: Diamonds  are a precious stone consisting of a clear and colourless crystalline form of pure carbon, the hardest naturally occurring substance.

Few definitions for rose that resonate with the theme of the art work:

Rise succeed in not being limited or constrained by (a restrictive environment or situation). And also be restored to life. find the strength or ability to respond adequately to (a challenging situation).

God is the one that gives us the ability to do anything, and also when He gives us skills we are expected to use it to bring Him glory. As always, thank You God for sending Jesus to show us what it means to be in the kingdom knowing that we are all servant and we work for you alone. Lord give us strength to move out of the way and let Your glory shine.

Thank you for reading and be blessed. The Lord smiles at you each day.

Hannah-Michaela We can not control what happens around us but we can control our responses. Have a wonderful day and if you going to bed then sweet dreams.

The art and beauty of knowing the past!

For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Proverbs 2:6-8 NIV

I just wanted share one of my passion is looking at pictures and seeing the beauty of it. A friend’s brother is the artist behind the pictures, and sometimes we all tell our stories through different ways. This is a therapy to him.

This is one of my favourite drawings and a history behind the great woman in her time is just amazing. If you don’t know who she is, see below:

Harriet Tubman: Aside from helping her family (and thousands more) escape slavery, she led troops in combat, cured a disease, and was generally way more badass than history generally portrays her.

She was the Moses of her time avoiding cops, dogs, mobs, bounty hunters, and slave catchers. She and her escapees slept in swamps and moved only at night. Once with her on the Railroad, she will threated anyone who lost their nerve to escape. She even once had to drug a baby. She once told a man”You go on or die.”  https://www.businessinsider.com/8-amazing-facts-about-harriet-tubman-2016-4?r=US&IR=T

The end of the line, we can all make a difference in where exactly God has placed us. No matter how small it is or how big … It all counts.

Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.
Psalms 119:38 NIV

Have a wonderful day and remember live in the now not the past or the future you haven’t seen but right now.
