Wishcasting Wednesday

A day for wishing - Jamie Ridler has posed a new question:

What inspiration do you wish to follow?

My inspiration these days is the great community online of such awesome artists and bloggers who are so open and giving and inspirational. Where ever I look I find ideas, gorgeous art, inspiring stories. Everyday is like a new treasure hunt - you never know who or what you will find.

I also find such inspiration in the memes I participate in and groups (check my sidebar for links)I belong to:

The Artist's Way Group, hosted by Paula

Full Moon Dreamboards and Wishcasting, hosted by Jamie

ABC Wednesday, Shadow Shot Sunday, Sky Watch Friday, Creative Every Day.

Thank you to all those who support with lovely comments, who give of themselves and their art so generously and to the hosts who provide such incredible groups!

I wish to continue seeking and finding inspiration from these wonderful people!

As Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog . Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."

  5. Beautiful sentiment, and so true!!! Thank you for sharing!

  6. I enjoyed your lovely post! You have a great looking blog too!!

  7. Very inspirational! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.


    Is it possible to seek God? Calvinists teach that none seek God. They believe God selects all who will be saved, making it an impossibility to seek HIM. Man-made doctrines are always contrary to Scripture. God's word is always, the last word.

    Acts 15:15-17 With this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written, 16 After theses things I will return, And I will rebuild the tabernacle of David which has fallen, And I will restore it, 17 So that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,

    Prophets of God agree that all mankind may seek the Lord; a sharp contrast to Calvinistic teaching.

    Psalm 10:4 The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts are, "There is no God."

    The wicked can seek God, however, they choose not to. Pride destroys the desire to seek God.

    Acts 17:26-27 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;

    Mankind is to seek God. He is there for whoever is willing to find Him.

    Psalm 53:1-2 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God.".....2 God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there is anyone who understands, Who seeks God,

    If God selects men to be saved against their will, He would not have to look down to see who seeks Him.

    Proverbs 8:17 "I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.

    God says diligently seek Him. Calvinists proclaim that no man can seek God. Who do you believe?

    2 Chronicles 19:3 But there is some good in you, for you have removed the Asheroth from the land and you have set your heart to seek God."

    Men need to prepare their hearts to seek God.

    Psalm 9:10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

    The writer of the Psalms says God will not forsake those who seek God. Those who preach, the John Calvin view of predestination, strongly disagree.

    Matthew 6:33 But seek first His kingdom......

    Jesus says seek God's kingdom. John Calvin says men cannot seek God.

    Hebrews 11:6 ....for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

    God rewards those who seek Him.

  12. Hello Beverley, thank you for visiting my blog post. I look forward to seeing your photos for the 5 in 5 meme.

Here's to a happy new year and fun creative times!
