Only through art can you capture the raw essence of being and bolster your fleeting moments against the ceaseless storms of eternity."
You know my story, now let us tell yours.
For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea,’ and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith. -Mark 11:23
No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against me in Judgment I condemn. -Is. 54:17
I am established in righteousness, and oppression is far from me -Is. 54:14
The weapons of my warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds -2 Cor. 10:4
I am redeemed from the curse of the law. I am redeemed from poverty. I am redeemed from sickness. I am redeemed from spiritual death. -Gal. 3:13
I overcome all because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. -1 John 4:4
I stand in the evil day having my loins girded about with truth, and I have the breastplate of righteousness. My feet are shod with the Gospel of Peace. I take the Shield of Faith, and I quench every fiery dart of the enemy. I am covered with the Helmet of Salvation, and I use the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and use it against the enemy. -Eph. 6:14-17

“Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’? Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place,that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it?The earth takes shape like clay under a seal; its features stand out like those of a garment."
Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you. -Revelations 3:3
