How Did Artistry For Jesus Come About?
I always enjoyed creating earlier in my life God provided me with a ministry
called “Witness Cards” a business card small seeds pointing to Jesus.
The goal was to distribute 100,000 seeds freely. It took four years to reach the goal,
but God provided it. All told there were 300,000 seeds distributed throughout the world.
My name is Randy Evans and my designer name is Mark414. I have always enjoyed art, it was my favorite subject when I was in school eons ago.
The farmer plants seed by taking God’s word to others. Mark 4:14 NLT
Faith God Hears Our Prayers
The last few years have been a little hard but God has walked us through each day providing our needs. God answers prayers, in His time and His way. I had to find some way to produce income and came across a company called Spreadshirt willing to give me a free shop all I had to do was create designs.
As a Christian, the only designs that were on my heart to create were to glorify, honor and point back to Jesus. By faith, I believe that by putting God first He will provide the need as He always has.
Need Factor And God’s Provisions
In order to create designs there once again was that need factor, a software to create with and there wasn’t a means to purchase one. God provided Inkscape a free source.
WOW! Designs came flowing in and being created and uploading to the new free shop “PRE Designs”. When the decision came to purchase a domain name (which God Provided) “PRE Designs” wasn’t available.
You see ministries are not ours, they are God’s. Our plans may not be the steps God has planned for us. The need arose for a new name “Artistry For Jesus” because that is what the designs are about.
God then provided another source for the designs to be used on, another Company Zazzle providing a free shop with a host of products.
There now came another need the site Artistry For Jesus what was the need? As I share with the Lord that I needed a scripture for the name of the site and within a
few short minutes He provided Ephesians 2:10 NLT
10 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.
As I write this I don’t know what God has in store for “Artistry For Jesus” and I am sure more needs will arise. What I can proclaim by faith is that God will provide the need.
He always has.
