Psalm 22 and the Crimson Worm 2020 Easter Message

Published April 11, 2020 by Laura Crean Author

Seeking God with all your heart thumbnail

This video is a bible study – message about a hidden prophecy or Remez that is concealed in Psalm 22, specifically Psalm 22:6 about the “Crimson Worm”. It is an absolutely beautiful and fascinating message from our Heavenly Father to his children and just in time for Easter 2020, which I’m sure everybody would agree is an unusual one. I know you are going to just love studying the scriptures with me in this video, so get your bibles, notebooks and a cup of tea and come and dig into God’s word with me today.

The Storms of Life

You Tube video – “The Storms of Life”

The Storms of Life

With the recent stormy weather, and knowing all about coping with the emotional storms in the world and my personal life over the years, I took a walk and contemplated ‘the storms of life’. I focused on God and his word and how it has taught me to look for God in the storm, to focus on his awesome power in the storm and have faith that he will guide me, and steer me through it. To have faith that my divine purpose in him will ultimately shine a light through the storm until the sun comes out again. Where’s your perspective in the storms of life?… If you would like to buy a print of my Acrylic lighthouse painting entitled “God is my Light and Salvation’, follow the link below (design also available on many other products including, clothes, mugs, phone cases and cushions) –

Are you Awake?

Published January 26, 2020 by Laura Crean Author

What do you think being awake means? A little talk about Spiritual Awakenings.

Are you Awake thumbnail.2

In this video (link below) I talk about the idea of being spiritually awake or awakening.  I touch on many different ideas about what this may mean in different philosophies and world views, including Christianity (John 3:3) talks about being ‘born again’ and how this relates to the Holy Spirit and the heavenly realms, especially the Kingdom of God, the awakening of the third eye and the Kundalini spirit and the 9 Chakras, Jewish mysticism, the Tree of Life and the 10 nodes and Norse mythology and the symbolism of the 9 realms residing in the branches and roots of the world tree Yggdrasil and the significance of the Rainbow bridge and the wells.

Another video done. I know I have done 3 videos in quite quick succession but that’s just because I was making them all at the same time. It will probably be a while until my next one. But please watch, like, subscribe and share guys, especially my closer friends and family – I need your support. Thank you. And if you feel so inclined – comment on here or more importantly on You Tube – positive comments only please!

welcome to the well in the garden thumbnail

Welcome to the new me – writing more, painting more and blogging and vlogging more.  Please help me to embrace this new chapter in my life by liking, subscribing to my new look You Tube channel and sharing my endeavours.  Please let me know what you want me to blog and vlog about and then sit back and enjoy.

Please note, there is a couple of very small glitches between 3 and 4 minutes in the video but it doesn’t affect the content of the video so please just wait for it to clear and carry on watching.  It took me so long to get the video up that I didn’t want to risk not having it at all.  And hopefully I will have ironed out all the glitches by the time I upload my next video, which should follow within a week.

My first you Tube video introducing The Well in the Garden

God the Gardener

I realise that I haven’t updated for a while,  so I just thought I would add this post to show some of my new paintings.  I will also be adding a post about  an Arts exhibition that I was involved in recently, so please look out for that.

A while back I posted about a dream that I had and posted what I thought God was speaking to me about in it.  You can look back at that post if you would like; it was entitled “The Reluctant Time traveller and the Orange tree in the Garden.” Just click the link below, read and come back here…

The Reluctant Time Traveller and the Orange Tree in the Garden

Eventually I was inspired to paint some imagery from this dream. So here it is; it is entitled “God the Gardener.”

I was also at that time looking at Genesis. So another painting I have completed recently is entitled “The Fall” and as you can see it is Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

Lastly I want to share my most recent painting entitled “Blue Jay and Jacaranda” and it also was inspired by a dream; this was a dream that I had many years ago, over 20 years ago in fact. In that dream I was actually shown a little blue bird in the Tree of Life, which had every fruit possible in it ( I didn’t include the fruit in this  painting but it had the feeling of the bird in the tree. ) In the dream the bird told me what fruit to eat to bring me healing.  And it did heal me.

So, a little while ago I was ill with a strange vertigo bug and after having healing at church, which led to me being on the floor with the Holy Spirit working in my head ( my eyes behind my closed lids were going nineteen to the dozen and I knew God was healing me.)  This wasn’t an immediate healing, although I had no dizziness the next day, I did still have  it on and off for a while but I definitely felt the healing.  But after this healing I was reminded of the dream and took the fruit I had been told to have in that dream as part of my healing.  Then I painted this picture.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of my new paintings and as you can see they are all very much to do with God the Gardener, who once walked with us in a garden that he created just for us!  He walked with us and talked with us and gave us the job of looking after the garden and everything in it.

Unfortunately we let sin into the garden which polluted it.  One day we will be given permission to eat from the actual tree of life once more; God really does want to walk and commune with us again as it was in  the beginning.

That snake Satan may have reached out to bruise the heel of Man but Jesus, though bruised has crushed that snake’s head once and for all and he will not enter the garden again.  I for one cannot wait to walk up that golden path and reach out to pluck the fruit from the tree of life and spend an eternity communing with God -my creator who from the beginning had amazing plans for us, his beloved children.

Wow! We just cannot imagine the amazing things in store for us in the garden our Heavenly Father has prepared for us.

The Cup of Living Waters. 

Published May 13, 2017 by Laura Crean Author

When darkness falls

and you feel you’re all alone

and fear begins to seep into your bones,

when sickness creeps up on you so unawares

and leaves you feeling weak

and ill prepared,

when that time comes;

when you feel you’ve lost control

and only a bitter taste

consumes your soul,

when nothing that you do or say

can make a change

and hopelessness leaves you in a world that feels so strange;

Step forward now and find the home of faith

and call on Jesus – humbly seek his face.

For he has heard your prayers

and seen your tears – and surely he will heal,

for he heals the broken hearted

and binds up every wound – it is his will!

He does not hide his face

from those that call –

Seek him, praise him, honour and revere him,

for he heals all…

…who come to him for strength and joy and life.

You are not forsaken,

God’s presence is like

the surgeon’s sharpest knife –

it cuts through all fears

and transplants love within its place,

such is the awesome mercy of God’s grace.

He will be your strength

and will help you when you call,

have faith because when God is with you – nothing is impossible!

So come and drink from his cup so sweet,

his living waters into your life will seep

and such a medicine will refresh your soul,

God’s love will wash over you

and make you whole.
