Day 15~ The Art of Love and War

In Your justice and Your mercy
Heaven walked the broken road
Here to fight this sinner's battle
Here to make my fall your own
-Hillsong United "Love is War"

What is your war?

We all have one or two or eight going on inside of us.

And the way we wage the war inside can be one composed of love and art and beauty.
Yet there lies another side to spectrum. That being hate and destruction and sin.

In The Art of War by Sun Tzu, he writes of musical notes, and primary colours, and tastes. Each of which we have five and when combined make the most beautiful of art. 

Five musical notes give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard.
Five primary colours produce more hues than can ever be seen.
Five cardinal tastes yield more flavors than can ever be tasted.

What melodies, colours, and tastes will your life experience today?
Will you be ready to receive?

May we attack our waging war inside with the art our heart holds.
Wars can be fought with paint, and books, and music, and words.

What is your war and how are you combing your struggle with your opportunities?
Seek to know your war.
And seek to know your art.

And may you combine the beauty inside with that of your war.
And watch, just watch that war fade with every attack you make with your art.
God's art that he knit together before you were born.

Until next time-
