Hi. So this week I spent my days listening to John Andrews and Jarred Cooper at Hollybush Christian Family Camp along with a hundred other people.
As expected it was an amazing time. Asking God for pictures and painting the translation as best I could onto canvas. This year a friend of mine came with me. She’s a single mum of two. It was great having them there with us, even though it was brief before they left for home.
One evening while asking God for a picture to paint, I waited and waited and waited and nothing really came. So I waited and worshipped. Eventually I saw a lady holding a baby on her side and one hand reaching high up to God in worship. I felt the witness so much that I decided to paint it. I felt that God was saying I disregard the stigma that comes with single mums and I choose to anoint you. I know my friend in the past has had to deal with peoples opinions. The stigma that people hold about single parents. She is not single because she chose to be. However she has handled the trauma, the hurt and pain and is walking out the rest of her life victoriously with Christ by her side. She is an amazing mum to her children and an amazing friend to so many.
So this picture goes out to all the single parents who have overcome. May the glory and overwhelming love of PAPA God fall upon you and strengthen you today.
