The Live In

“Milt’s Art Studio” That’s what I thought initially, I subsequently added what you cannot read in this photograph: “This is my Stronghold, Chapel, and my Sanctuary. And, I pray the Permanent Home of The Holy Spirit”.
This is the door of my little “hobbit house” just outside my bedroon door. It is quite small, but equipped with all of my resource books, writings, computer, painting supplies, and with tables for drawing, matting,and framing. It’s a bit crowded with over a hundred (framed and otherwise) works ; stored and on the walls. Most are not for sale; they are for display, wherever possible, in venues where I rely on them to create an opportunity for Christian dialog; Stores, galleries, street displays, and churches.

In the past I have given a great many to my family and friends (the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker). They would be “thank you’s”. birthdays, holidays, weddings, and the like.
The playback from this has been so very gratifying as recipients have displayed them in offices, homes, and sanctuaries where they may be seen as an ongoing part of their own Witness for God’s Word, His Works. While some would fall way short of being great art, and would not sell in the secular marketplace, most all reflect something of the wonder of God’s workings through His Spirit.

The above sign says; “And, I Hope the Permanent Home of The Holy Spirit” seeming to suggest that He may come and go. I no longer believe that to be true; or that He appears only for inspirations that I have always credited to Him. In this, I have arrived where many of you are in your beliefs. He NEVER leaves or forsakes us. While he may initiate creativity in whatever we do from time to time, He is “in waiting” for a display of discipline, a dedication to grow and develop further what we already own. Gifted by God.

If I dry up, become discouraged, He encourages what is already in me; but not necessarily to do the work Himself. If He does not show up, it’s because He doubts the seriousness of the invitation. You do not hang it on your door- but in your heart. In that, He is resident, not guest.

About 4hispraise

I am quite simply a child of our Lord God. What good that I have done or may do, I pray will reflect solely on the presence of The Holy Spirit who speaks for me in all things.

    Looking forward to visiting this sacred place, the artist’s hideaway this July, God-willing. and to meet with the artist himself and his dear wife in fellowship, because of the loving Father up above, who gave us His dear Son and His Holy Spirit who lives right inside us and daily calls us to Himself. Yes Praise God He is Resident not Visitor in our hearts and lives.

    This blog reminds me of several homes around the world, where my many simple cross-stitch pieces, adorn a wall, a book or even is just on the desk of someone who has impacted my life . Praise God we are given opportunities to impact and bless others as we use our talents to His glory. Yes use our talents we must or we shall lose it. All honor and praise to Him. Let us remind each other that He is Resident in our lives and that we must show forth and spread His beauty and grace and love to others as long as He lends us breath. Amen.

    How awesome to have a kindred spirit of giving our lives as He gave us His Son.
