THE DOVE Presence and Provision: Receive and Release “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. “ John 14:25-27 Gods promise of presence and provision: drawing in, releasing and waiting…… and knowing He , “the Dove” could turn a fly at any moment…. This painting is about Holy Spirits Presence as well as His provision and sustenance. Years ago I raised white doves. I learned that they are one of the few birds that have "crop milk" for their young. The chicks hatch and then nestle up in their mothers’ chest feathers. There she has a type of milk called “crop milk” this is the chicks first nourishment. Holy Spirit was reminding me of this as I painted that Sunday. I KNOW this piece is about Holy Spirits presence and Gods provision! When I am painting during a worship service I am in constant conversation with the Holy Spirit about the canvas I’m working on. I know He has a plan for the piece and I want it to represent what I’m sensing is on His heart. This piece evolved differently than my other pieces I’ve painted with the Lord. This time He had me to lay in the colors and movement of the background by using my fingers to paint. Then I added a few brush strokes. As worship ended that day I sensed the Lord tell me to just sit down and just wait for what was to happen next on this piece. I had begun to see the movement of wings but just was not released to paint them at that time. I took the canvas back to my studio and began to ask the Lord about the next steps. I had seen a dove in the canvas the Sunday it was started, but was not released to paint it that day. I didn’t really understand why, but I wanted to be obedient to what I felt Him saying. As I sat in the studio studying the piece I looked at it and I began to see an image looking back towards me. It was a woman looking as if she was riding the back of this dove! I took my brush in hand and began pulling the wings out and then worked on the woman. Clearly she was sitting on His back and looking back over her shoulder to the viewer. As I painted I suddenly felt a shift inside of me. Sounds odd, but I knew the piece was about to make a big change. I stood back and asked the Holy Spirit for help I listened and watched for where I was to move next. It became very clear to me that The Dove was to painted now. I began to rough it in and then realized the woman I'd seen was now at the heart of this beautiful dove. The chest was very significant! It represents provision and protection, a breastplate of covenant colors! A spectrum of colors began to spill off my brush as if it were ALIVE! The wings receiving and releasing yet His tail feathers were like an anchor. They were pulling in, receiving and releasing all at the same time and yet He is still but could turn quickly! The piece is amazing me as I discover what all God is doing in what He has unfolded to me! I ADORE painting and journeying with Him !! I pray the Lord releases revelation of His heart as you take time to receive all that’s being released through this piece. That provision and protection surrounds you as you experience His presence. Enjoying His presence! ~~~ Jennifer Jones

Righteousness and Justice; NOT ON MY WATCH!

                        RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE
As I started this piece I only knew it was to be an eagle FULL of feathers and color. His eyes prominent and intense, his head tilted to make your head tilt, listening for something very critical…..
      “Righteousness and Justice” were words that began to ring in my spirit as I would turn my head and look into this piece of art.
His eyes, so serious that my eyebrows would begin to furrow into an intense gaze.

I began to search out an understanding of Eagles in Gods word and what the Lord says about “RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE”.

This is what I’ve found so far………
 Righteousness and Justice are the foundations of Gods throne.
In them He judges and it is in His KINDNESS that He brings us to repentance. Nothing in all of creation is hidden from Him. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before His eyes. He is rich in kindness.
For the word of the Lord is right and true;
He is faithful in all he does.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of His unfailing love. (Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for it is to you I lift up my soul. ... )
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made,
Their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea into jars;
He puts the deep into storehouses.
He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.

As I looked into Eagles I found…….They symbolize the spiritual man, a prophet, strength, Israel, swift, heavenly resting place, lifted by the spirit, instrument of judgment, Warring Angel

A quote from a viewer ~”eagles represent the prophetic, and this one seems incredibly fearless and focused. It's like it's saying 'NO! Not on MY watch!' perhaps a more mature 'mothering' eagle protecting the eaglets(even unhatched eggs) under Her care.”
~~ “"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God's messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn't let me”.~~Jesus (Matthew 23:37)

Then in the animal kingdom the Eagle is the King of the skies!
