Trust the healing

Sometimes when we are working through and praying about a challenge, we may feel frustrated or even fearful if we don’t get the healing results we are hoping for right away. It is most important at those times to keep working, keep praying, and trust that our prayers are effective, no matter how bleak the human picture may appear—knowing that God’s law is in operation, actively working to bless us.

This point came home to me in a very clear and unexpected way last fall when I took an all-day private workshop on oil painting. Since I was a novice, my instructor patiently taught me how to first make a general charcoal sketch, just getting the basic shapes of my subject. Then, after I learned about the color wheel, she taught me the next step of determining the values of light and shading—filling those into the drawing using a combination of white and marine blue paints, simply getting the light and shadows of the painting correct. When that process was done we moved on to working with colors to complete the painting. Under my instructor’s tutelage, I was able to finish a fairly decent little seascape that day.
