(Part 9 – Day 5 Layers of Meaning)
We are on a progressive journey a cycle or spiral moving upward into God’s heart, a journey of knowing Him. We are growing in relationship with God, encountering Him, experiencing Him in supernatural moments and awakening to His presence in our daily lives and experientially learning that He is who He says He is in the Bible. As we meet Him we come into clarity about ourselves, who He made us to be and our life’s purpose. This journey is Spirit led and guided, the water flowing around the tree represents the journey led by the Holy Spirit.

Spiritual Transformation starts on the inside and begins to work out on the surface of our lives through a process. This process is training and equipping, healing and empowering us to fulfill our calling on earth and in Heaven while drawing us into growing relationship with God. We know from Scripture that this process has an end in mind, to make us like Christ and to be an Overcomer and mentions multiple rewards of authority and eternal proximity to God for those who reach this point. In the Bible, Paul compares the journey to a race with a finish line and prizes.

A miracle has transpired. A complete resurrection from the dead has occurred, eternal life with God is now a reality – on earth and in Heaven. The result of the simple heartfelt decision, discussed in the last two posts, is now seen in it’s supernatural reality.
The light shining on the fish symbolizes God’s Spirit entering into this life, and creating the glow that now dwells within.

The story of transformation begins in the dark waters of “Day 5″. Subtle flickering images of fish are moving either toward or away from the light. These forms are tessellations, repeating and perfectly filling the plane without gap or overlap. They symbolize each and every one of us at the deepest part of our being. We are either moving toward or away from God; there is no middle ground.
In the left hand corner of the photo, a decision has been made and a literal breakthrough is the result. The fish itself comes into greater clarity and focus at that moment in time when The Decision to Believe takes place.

There is an amazing supernatural experience in the Christian life. It cannot be forced upon you, it only begins if from the depths of your heart you say yes, but then becomes this transformation process that is happening to you from the inside out. There is a literal metamorphosis happening to you that becomes something others can see and are drawn to even if they don’t understand why. There is a glow in your eyes and to your life that is increasing daily. But the most amazing part is that you move from believing in God to knowing Him and experiencing Him daily. This is not just a figure of speech.

There is a long story associated with the making of “Day 5″ (pictured below) that I won’t go into now but something you may find interesting is that it was made over a 5 year period. Although designed and rendered in a full scale drawing at the beginning, the construction of the piece took a mandatory siesta of sorts in the middle.
