MY VERSION OF A RENOIR IN PENCILS
Pierre August Renoir, a master of Art suffered from severe rheumatism. Although painful for him to continue to paint, he continued on. A friend asked why he wish to torture himself. Renoir responded, "The pain passes, but the beauty remains."
Like Renoir, Van Gogh suffered from a mental illness as described by professionals in his time. Although it may be partly true, in my opinion, half of his quirky character was because he was misunderstood. You see, Van Gogh was a genius and had a deep relationship with God. Often, we as Christians, are invalidated because secular people do not understand how having a relationship with God could be possible. Jesus said, we, who are His people will be persecuted in His name.
We see in all around us in current times and has become much more prevalent. I compare it to an ant hill. As long as the hill continues to be left alone, the worker ants and the colony are fine. However, once the ant hill is demolished, the ants become discombobulated.
For years we have lived in a country where speaking of and about God was silenced by the progressives. They were allowed to do whatever they want whenever they wanted. Life was cool. As soon as God stepped back in our lives, ever loudly, they have become discombobulated. But like God has done in the past, we in this time will once again be led by God to fulfill His plans that have been set in place even before the beginning of time. The upcoming events will be manifested whether we like it or not. God's power is stronger than all of ours put together. It's just a matter of time when beauty once again blankets our world.
For now, we exercise patience.
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
