OPERATE IN YOUR ELEMENT IN 2015!!

Do what I love most-Sketching and Sharing.


The Experience, The Fun, The Passion, The Desire-It's always a different ball game when we do what we were CREATED to do, when we do what we were WIRED to do.....
Let me explain, the week I did this learning session, I pulled my back muscle around my waist, it was so bad, I had to stay at home, I was wondering as the Sketching Workshop was approaching, "How am I going to cope?" 






Addressing the crew, ready to fly!!


I couldn't sit down for long....the pain was excruciating!

Then Saturday the 6th of September came and I managed to go to the Workshop. I'm not kidding.....immediately I saw the people all lined up waiting for the session....The back ache vanished and from 11.30 to 17.30- I searched for the pain, tried to touch where it was hurting but to no avail. The pain took its flight. I enjoyed the workshop-without any aches or pains. It was a fantastic day!



The Workshop in progress , answering questions.


Now, you won't believe it, I got home that evening and the back ache whispered to me....."I'm still here ooo, can you feel me?" I felt the pain again......



Showing a few tips, while sketching is in progress


But while in my element-SKETCHING and SHARING-I didn't feel a thing!

I can't explain it! Some call it Adrenaline, Some call it Inspiration.

All I would say is this, "May God help us all to have the courage and boldness to go out and live what we dreamed to be, without any fears or limitations! Because it is the pure work of the enemy to get us trapped in a life, in a job, in a box that was never ours to be in. God's design for us was to operate in our element....When in our element-we glorify God at the highest level and our lives are far more enjoyable"

"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."-Ephesians 2:10 KJV

"For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."-Ephesians 2:10 NIV

"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."-Ephesians 2:10 NLT

"For we are his creatures who are created in Yeshua The Messiah for good works, those things which God had from the first prepared that we should walk in them."-Aramic Bible in Plain English


So there must have been an INITIAL DESIGN PLANNED BY GOD, A DESIGN planned BEFORE, long BEFORE we were BORN.

It is my prayer that you never rest until you DISCOVER THAT MASTER PLAN, and when you discover it, TO HAVE THE COURAGE AND BOLDNESS TO LIVE IT!

Thanks Oh Lord for the way you made me!

A Dio sia la gloria

What a timely post. I am currently out of work and would like more than anything to to work full-time as an artist. I have, so far, been too afraid to pursue this even though know I would be much happier in a studio rather than a cubicle. I Thanks for the encouragement.

Brilliant. Keep pressing toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus. He's made you an amazing artisan. Keep going strong. You have inspired me yet again.

great testimony Adebanji. We strive to get down some 2D and 3D art. I firmly believe that those who have Christ and His Spirit in them, like Yourself have the capacity to produce 4D art by communicating a Spiritual tone and message that speaks the Truth of Life. this is why i have come back to art and am attempting to learn as much as I can. And i appreciate Your words in a video that said...."draw, draw, draw and then draw some more." Thanks Bro. If I never meet You here, i'll see You there. Love.

Thank you for allowing God to use you to bring beauty to this world as only you can. You have inspired me to dig out my sketchbooks and pencils after 35 years....I've known since third grade I was an artist. Your words in this moment are the confirmation I needed to finally act on it. Thank you, Adebanji!
