The secret tip in finding out what to illustrate for your “Angels Among Us!” Online Art Show submission or any other art/design idea is this:

Pray and ask God FIRST what He would have you create for His purpose, plan and glory.
Then, follow what He reveals.

Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us:
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (KJV)

I like the way the version from “The Message” reads it:
“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track.”

Pray first. Watch. Then move.

Ask God to show you, guide you and direct you as to what He wants illustrated for this and any project that you use the gift He’s given you.

That way, the final result will accomplish far more under His direction than on your own.
