33 Dots: Pride
I am doing a challenge experiment in drawing — to make my mind expand but also to hear God at the same time. This time I heard the word pride. I put 33 dots on a piece of art paper, outline them and then colour. Then I pray. What Lord does this mean?
Now comes the harder part. Lord, what is this? What are you showing me?
At first, when I looked at the outline alone and turned it round and round I kept seeing crowns.
That carries back to Lord of the Rings and my reading of the third book in the series. There are a series of kings in the story. Good and bad. And then I am also reading David Kitz’s book “The Soldier Who Killed a King” and we have read together in a study both Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, followed by Herod’s entry. A study of two kings. Quite the differences.
But then I got to thinking that I saw an egg — and an egg person.
So what I see is Humpty Dumpty.
As I read through article after article it seems to me that this sentence made the most sense:
Perhaps, in this instance, we could take advice from Humpty Dumpty himself, as seen in Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll:
“When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less “ (Lewis Carroll).
People will always attribute more meaning to nursery rhymes than was initially intended (from The Origin of Humpty Dumpty).
I like to take the rhyme of Humpty Dumpty as a riddle. So I asked God what He thought. I prayed. I listened.
To read what God told me please go to:
I would you to hear your thoughts.
