Please feel free to browse around, as I know it will bless your heart and inspire you to create.

I was really blessed by what Dave says in this part...

The guiding verse of AMOKArts is 1 Peter 4:10 each one should use whatever gifts he has received to serve others faithfully administering God’s grace in it’s various forms. That’s what we are trying to do here, to help you to use your creative, artistic gifts to serve others and serve the Lord. Some people would say that your artistic abilities are talents and not Spiritual gifts. I would point them to Exodus 35 and 36:

30 Then Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the LORD has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, 31 and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts- 32 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 33 to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic craftsmanship. 34 And he has given both him and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach others. 35 He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as craftsmen, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers—all of them master craftsmen and designers. 1 So Bezalel, Oholiab and every skilled person to whom the LORD has given skill and ability to know how to carry out all the work of constructing the sanctuary are to do the work just as the LORD has commanded.”

Bezalel and Oholiab and the other craftsmen were specifically gifted by God to be artists and it says they received these gifts when they were filled with the Spirit. Where I come from that makes them Spiritual gifts. In the same way I believe God has gifted you with your gifts and talents. Please note the last few words of verse one as they are key. “…to do the work of constructing the sanctuary are to do the work just as the Lord has commanded.” We are to use our gifts he way God intended for the furtherance of His Kingdom.


I hope it blesses your heart as much as it has blessed mine...
