Have you ever watched an artist paint as they brought a blank piece of canvas to life? There is alot to learn from an artist that knows how to use the primary colors in mixing two different ones to receive another color in return which is used to bring their picture to life. Colors are used by artist to express their inner thoughts and their emotions. From an artist perspective, as colors blend together this is the same principle in learning to communicate with each other.
If you were to analyze the very words that come out of your mouth how would they be reflecting your inner thoughts and displaying your emotions? Would you find your conversations productive and blending with others without restrictions in adding something to God’s picture of life? Or, would you find that you are painting a picture alone with hard lines and dark words that miss the meaning in blending our words in love?
Learning to communicate in a loving spirit requires the primary principles of how to stand and then we learn how to add color through our words and actions that brings God’s picture to life. In God’s picture there is love that flows from the mountain tops to the valleys in living water. This living water is displayed from the waterfalls to the rivers and then to the springs.
The lakes are fed from the springs that come up from below and they are like mirrors reflecting what they see. There are green meadows, blue skies and alot of God’s children playing close by. The wildlife is at peace due to the harmony in the spirit while everything in life is experiencing unity through the love of Jesus Christ…
As you can see our words can paint pictures and display our inner thoughts when we learn to look at what colors are coming up from our well. I challenge you to look at the colors that you bring into life to insure that they are adding something good verses something that could be bad. For who wants to paint a painting all alone and miss the relationship that we can have with our Creator on the eternal throne?
May your words add color and warmth to this cold world for others to see how to properly believe….Amen

I agree “Communication is living art” Not everyone is an artist in this world.
there are but many simply just don’t who they are painting for while there are some who simply don’t know what they are painting..For art with God is expressed in love, passion and in life…
I agree with this to an extent, as long as what is being communicated is sincere and true. Cause what use are “colors” and beautiful words if what is being told are all lies? Better the hard truths than flowery deceptions.
The message contains the truth and the Word of God plainly gives us the wisdom to discern the picture. When we learn to trust in Him and apply His Word is when we can discover the art that is before us…
Here is one way that might help you to tell the difference between real art and flowery deceptions…Living Art Gives & Ask For Nothing In Return…
Thank you for the reply. Actually I was referring to the communication between people in a day to day basis, in making, keeping and maintaining relationships, etc. I was trying to apply it to my own personal experiences, particularly with “deceitful” people.
Anyway, I have quite accidentally stumbled on this site of yours awhile back, and I have been a lurker ever since. I find some of your articles hit me straight on, and I would like to thank you for bringing these messages to the people. Some of them (actually that includes me) really need to hear these kinds of messages, to remind us that there is always hope. More power to you.
Thank you for your response as well. One thing that I have discovered is that as we continue to apply God’s Word and we seek Him in prayer with patience is that He will help us discern between good and evil.
The tough part which requires self discipline is learning to abide to the spirit even if it means going against our fleshly desires. Kinda like Joseph when he was tempted by Potiphars wife in Genesis 39:7-12.
Don’t allow Satan to rob you of your joy and your trust because as God teaches us in Hebrews 5:14 we are to exercise our senses to discern between both good and evil. As you develop more with the Lord you can actually smell something or someone that is fake…For real art is genuine and soothing to the soul…God Bless you and Merry Christmas…
