The Lion and the Lamb- Restore My Heart - Prophetic Art by Gwen Meharg
The Lion and the Lamb- Restore My Heart
Watercolor - 22 x 30 unframed
This painting was done for in support of Denise Glenn's MotherWise. (www.motherwise.org)
My heart was to incorporate the previous three bible studies and the new
study she was working on that studies the bride/groom relationship from
a Jewish perspective. Aspects included in the painting are the obvious:
Lion, lamb, Star of David, grape vine (I am the vine you are the
branches), door with the blood, the rose of Sharon (which is in fact a
lily), and lily of the valley. A little more subtle are the wine cups,
pomegranates, the tree of life on the temple pillars. My FAVORITE part
is the prayer shawl with tassels and the DOVE in the negative space of
the prayer shawl. The background represents royalty, glory and the
Bright and Morning Star. OH, and we can't forget the River!
This was a challenging piece, trying to incorporate all the different
aspects that Denise had in her heart. A spent as much time researching
as I did painting. I tried to give it a 'Jewish' feel because Restore
My Heart explores the Jewishness of the Christian faith. It was
challenging, but I am pleased with the results.
I pray that the Holy Spirit will restore hearts through my work and
through the MotherWise (and FatherWise) bible studies.
MotherWise is a lifeline for mothers providing Biblical instruction and
practical help that mothers need to thrive in today's chaotic, changing
world. A network of moms supporting moms.
Four wonderful studies are available through MotherWise. Videos and
cassettes make facilitating easy. Mentoring moms facilitate smaller
prayer groups and help bridge the generation gaps. MotherWise studies
incorporate exercise(optional!), prayer, bible instruction and practical
parenting skills. I highly recommend any or all of these studies to
those seeking God's truth for their lives.
