Hello everyone! I do pray that you all will have a blessed day! For this is another day that the LORD has made! YAY!
You know, I maybe an oddball to a lot of people just because I love GOD! But this is my choice to do so….and it makes be happier than anything else in the world as to believe in GOD and follow JESUS!
There are many people who love GOD so, and his beloved son JESUS that we want to share the joy! And some people through the loving word of GOD or in actions of caring. Some of us through illustrations. and Bible tracts. I do both. And what I have always liked was those #Jack Chick bible tracts. I liked the drawings, and the message. I was direct and to the point. As a child riding the subway with my parents there were people handing out these tracts. They are like little comic books….but not really comical. They were meant to lead people to the LORD and be saved.
Yes they were scary, but they are only scary if you do not know the LORD yet. And hated messages if you love the sin you are in, and not the LORD.
But I was never able to keep one. I would take it to school or home and it would be worn out and lost .
Seeing how some people who did not like the Jack Chick.com tracts and I did, I wanted to know why they felt the way they did. They felt as though they were being condemned by those who felt they were “holier than thou.”
And I get that too. They are very direct and preach hard about heaven and hell through situations in life. But no one I know likes to be yelled at and having their finger wagging at them. That includes me. I have met women who felt I should not wear pants made for women (even on a cold day under a dress), or make-up to be well groomed, fashionable modest clothing So yeah. I have had my share of those types of Christians judging me too.
I want to show the love of JESUS in my tracts I am working on. I will share them with you once I am able to somehow save them in a PDF file. I feel I need to spread the love a JESUS in a way that is not pointing the finger , using scare tactics and yelling.
Drawings and more drawings. You know you have to be able to fit the drawing and the scripture on to one sheet of paper. and that can get tricky. You do not want the images or words to be cut off when working on the tract.
The first idea or design always takes me longer to do because it is an adjustment period. Re-figuring how things need to be. And always with the thought that you are doing this with our GOD in mind.
As I get to the point where i will add some color, I will then need to be able to show you all the finished product of encouragement . It takes me longer than some others. I do have a full time job and other projects I do. So be patient and you will see the finished tract. I might not add color as how I see Jack Chick did not to his. I have to give it thoughtful prayer!
Have a blessed day. Stay in prayer! Avoid negative people who aim to disrespect you in all ways possible. They are distractions from keeping your eyes on the LORD.
