This painting is a recreation of a spot in Yellowstone National Park. Imagine what the first explorers and mountain men thought when they saw steam spewing out of the earth and putrid smells exuding from its depths. It must have given them a peek at hell.

The devil is alive and well.  He’s been here from the start.

He tried to overtake the Lord which must have broke God’s heart.

He had a place already there, but wanted more you see.

He gathered up rebellious friends to be what they could be.

His name was once the Prince of Light – the bright light of the dawn,

But when He turned away from God,  His soul was surely gone.

And now he prowls this earth below in search of company.

It’s lonely in the depths of hell.  He’ll never be set free.

When Jesus came to bear our sins, the devil cried in pain.

This lowly child would slay him and give us life again.

Upon the cross He’d suffer, He died but that’s not all.

He rose again.  He conquered death.  He gave His victory call.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
