It’s taken more time than I anticipated, but I’m finally ready to announce the name change from “SoupArt Designs”, to “RefreshedArt Designs”, to more accurately reflect the nature of the scriptural art that I create and share here, and in honor of the ministry my husband and I are privileged to share.
A couple of years ago, my husband and I started a Saturday morning music ministry for area senior living residences. We invited long-time fellow musicians and singers to join us, and we became the (re)freshed band. The (re)freshed band takes it’s name from Philemon 1:5-7:
“I’ve heard of your love and faithfulness, which you have both for the Lord Jesus and for all God’s people. I pray that your partnership in the faith might become effective by an understanding of all that is good among us in Christ. I have great joy and encouragement because of your love, since the hearts of God’s people are refreshed by your actions, my brother.”
It’s a continuing joy for me to share imagery created to honor scripture. Though the volume has diminished somewhat the past couple of years, I am still dedicated to this blog and I will continue to add new images as time permits.
Prayer is sacred. When we pray, we are talking to God, on behalf of ourselves or others. Offering to pray for someone is a promise not to be given, or taken lightly.
Insightful thoughts on ministry that makes the biggest impact for God’s Kingdom.
I woke this morning to the following highlighted on my Kindle app. I am not sure how it happened, but I believe God is trying to tell me something.
Lysa TerKeurst-What Happens When Women Walk in Faith:
“All along this ministry journey, I kept thinking God was looking for me to do great things for Him. But now I am convinced the Lord isn’t looking for a bestselling author or an arena speaker. He isn’t looking for people to dance in the limelight. He is looking for those souls who are willing to press close to His heart and hear the cries of the forgotten. He wants us to do great things with Him to reach the “least of these.” Ministry that makes the biggest impact is that which is done in the secret places, the hard stuff that is void of glory but full of guts.” (pg.181)
