1 Peter 2:9

The other day I took a walk down to my local shopping centre when I noticed this tag

I was immediately struck by the prophetic nature of the image, so I took a pic and proclaimed 1 Peter 2:9 over the person who scribed it

 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession,that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

I want to clarify that I do not condone tagging or criminal behaviour, yet looking at this tag gave me hope for this city. God loves the people who live in this post code and lets not forget it.

A week after capturing the tag we had our band  fund-raiser so that we can purchase equipment to record our songs. I had no intention of doing any prophetic art but after the prompting of one of our church members I thought, what a good idea.

As I started painting that night, I had no clue about what I was going to create until God reminded me of the tag.

The image down the bottom is a big symbolic hug. Not only does Jesus want to call this post code his royal priest hood but he wants to give it a big Heavenly hug.

I’m glad that I captured the tag, as today it was gone. It was white washed over and as we all know,  tagging is naughty.

Queen Street Servo

For a couple of months I have been a part of a really exciting community project.

This is the Queen Street Servo in Warilla  and the plan is to tidy it up, splash some paint and turn it into a place for community gatherings. This of course will only happen if people with vision get involved.  It’s easy to sit back with a cynic eye but I really believe something great can come out of this.

I think “Why not?” Why not believe that something that is a bit of an eye-saw, can be turned into something positive and that’s why I’ve put my hand up to be a part of this project. It’s also great to be a part of a team and that’s one of the special things about joining a project like this.

For a more detailed outline of the project here is a post by ABCD Illawarra describing all the cool things that can happen at the Queen Street Servo
