Devotional Art ~ Fly Me Away

Fly Me Away

“Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame.
 Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated...
 For your Maker is your husband—
 the LORD Almighty is his name— 
                                                                        ~Isaiah 54: 4-5

I always thought it would be romantic to go up in a hot-air balloon. I dreamed of that when I was a little girl. Fly me away oh lover of my soul. The day is done when I walked up with you out of that desert leaning on you, my Beloved. Now it is time to fly... The power flows into the fabric that has formed this lifting place... The tethers barely hold the massive carrier as I climb into the holding place with you Beloved. The fire and the wind roar and I’m ready to fly. I’m ready to sing a new song. I’m ready. I’m ready. The tethers release and I fly with you.... my hero... my rescuer... my friend... my Bridegroom.

Oh, Pattie! This is so so so healing for me. I already shared with you about the season the Lord has taken me into of Him revealing Himself to me as my Husband. Wow, this speaks to me so deeply! Do you mind if I just print out the picture and devotion to put on my mirror to look at for a few weeks? Thank you so much for posting this. :)

Gabby, I'd be honored to have my art and writing hanging on your mirror! :) Glad it spoke to you.

Hot air balloons have been an important theme lately. Everywhere I turn, in different ministries I'm connected with, the message is the same. God is ELEVATING us! He's taking us higher! A friend of mine drew a rainbow hot air balloon a few wks. ago, with the ties cut. She said we're "untethered" now, and ready to soar! God is so good in sowing the same message among His beloved Bride!
