You crown me with love

Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 103

In your presence

 

”I din närhet mättas jag av ditt liv

Liv i överflöd

En glädje och kärlek som flödar över

Även när torkan kommer på

Så är du min källa

Mitt i öknen

Hos dig hämtar jag min stryka och min kraft

Du är allt vad jag någonsin behöver”

and you will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring that continually produces water.”

The wedding couple

En målning jag skapade på uppdrag av bruden i porträttet. Hon hade den specialbeställd just för hennes brudgums födelsedag. Jag fick se hans min, kunde verkligen se att han var överraskad! 🙂 ❤️

A commission I made for the bride in the picture, who had it ordered especially for her grooms birthday! I could see by his facial expression that he was surprised!

Spirit pour out

”Let your spirit pour out and cover the earth

Pour your spirit over the dry places,

The dark places,

The empty and longing hearts,

The hungry and thirsty hearts…”

 

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,

To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified

//Jesus

Isaiah 61

 

”And it shall come to pass
that whoever calls on the name of the Lord
shall be saved.”
Acts 2:21

From ashes to beauty

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

 Jeremiah 29:11

”They shall neither hunger nor thirst,
Neither heat nor sun shall strike them;
For He who has mercy on them will lead them,
Even by the springs of water He will guide them.”

Isaiah 49:10

 

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

John 7:38

 

”Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.”

Isaiah 43:19
