For the Display of His Splendor Spirited Life Painting
 

FOR THE DISPLAY OF HIS SPLENDOR — A Soul Story from Dawn 

This Isaiah 61 painting is a Soul Essence Art exploration of the life-gift of "beauty for ashes"... “to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."

See my video from a few years below or below if you are not familiar with it. I particularly love the writings of Isaiah. These sacred texts from the Christian and Judaic traditions have powerful seeds for life for our time.

As we allow the process of formation and reformation, giving the tears of this life over to the care of God and trusting life, we are adorned with a crown of beauty. In rest, there is restoration and renewal in unexpected colors and an outpouring of grace. Weakness is turned to strength. We become oaks of righteousness, dressed in royal robes for the display of the splendor of the Creator and the creation revealed.

This acrylic painting is from the Spirited Life collection. Life is composed of many circles of creation and recreation. Spirited Life paintings are variations on the theme of life and dreams of a new world. Connect to your essential story of life as you explore paintings in the Spirited Life collection.

What is your essential story of life? What is alive in you?

I hope this painting has sparked a reconnection and remembrance for you today. I believe there is beauty to be found right here, right now, all around you and right there within you. 
 
I'll meet you on the way!

ISAIAH 61

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.
Strangers will shepherd your flocks;
    foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
And you will be called priests of the Lord,
    you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
    and in their riches you will boast.

Instead of your shame
    you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
    you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
    and everlasting joy will be yours.

“For I, the Lord, love justice;
    I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
    and make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants will be known among the nations
    and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
    that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”

10 I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up
    and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
    and praise spring up before all nations.
