There are many things that I feel the Lord placed or allowed in my life that led up to this “Praise Him” painting. I have had many things that happened to me that consistently drew me closer to God and becoming more and more thankful to be alive like after dying for a short time along with other extremely fearful experiences from childhood on and He carried me through them all. Many of my prayers were answered even if some answers may have taken a long time and I have so many reasons to give Him praise and worship. With this, I wanted to know everything I could about God and read His Word which is the most important thing that I believe led to this painting. After many years of reading God's Word, the impact of finding out the amazing story of Who He is and His grace toward His rebellious creation He created made me,like the woman in the painting, to fall on my knees for the sheer glory of His presence and thankfulness in worship with the angels rejoicing in my faith and belief and gratitude to the Almighty God and King of the universe for giving us all the chance through Jesus' death on the cross and resurrection from the dead to save us from the hell we deserve for our rebellion in choosing to know evil. I believe God did put the image in my mind because this painting is the most popular of all I have done and so much better than most of the rest. The dove in the painting among the angels symbolizes the peace that comes with the glory of His presence when His children love, praise and worship Him in spirit and in truth as prophesied for the end days. This painting just happened and flowed quickly without me even thinking much about it. Some of the scriptures I have read have helped me in many of my other paintings like “The Seven Spirits of God in Revelations”. The closer I get to the knowledge of the truth in His Word, the further I get away from the things of this world.
