New site, new thoughts

I was going to call this post, “New site, new thoughts, old art.” Sigh.

I want to personally thank many of you for your constant support of this work, and for those who have helped me with translations and given donations for this and my other projects. It definitely is art from the heart. Sometimes I wonder why I keep plugging away, but I’ve come to realize that God holds timing and seasons according to our faith, and what we need to do is make the most of every moment (especially in small things), whether we’re living out our passions or not. For years I’ve tried to control my circumstances and thought that perfect outcome was a result of striving and being perfect. But, I’ve found that the priority of life is not the outcome or attaining a specific goal. It’s walking in intimacy with Jesus, and walking in faith by the leading of Holy Spirit. The only thing that’s required of me (look up Micah 6:8 :)..is to be faithful, obedient, and to love. So wherever I’m at and whatever I do, I live in love. Everything flows from there. That is freedom.

The French books will be printed soon and going to Quebec! There will be only two versions in print form (English and French) for purchase. As far as my schedule goes, I do work for a living. I laugh at the amount that I earn through selling comics or products so I need steady income. Aside from that, I’m currently working on a few creative projects which I’ll be sharing soon. These are all done with two side jobs and freelance work so you can imagine time constraints. I’m working on a new illustration and the manga as well. I’m sorry for the long wait for Vol 2. I can’t wait to show you all the pages when complete. 😀 I hope and believe it will be worth waiting for. 

I just looked at the time: 12:12. I thought to look up a scripture verse, saw Romans 12:12 from the Passion Translation (TPT):

“Let hope burst forth releasing continual joy within you! Don’t give up in a time of trouble, but commune with God at all times.”

And with that, you can pull through always 🙂

  1. I can’t agree enough. I’ve had a similar journey, especially in recent months. God has been breaking a lot of bad things off me, especially bad beliefs and mindsets despite my knowing him for 13 years. I didn’t even realize how messed up I was–you’re not going to until he transitions you out of it. I had to do quite a bit of dying but now I’m so much more freer and closer to God. He is much more tangible to me than he was even just a year ago, wow. He has, in a sense given me back to myself. Given me back my identity and true creativity without the sorrows and anxieties.

    I am excited to see the new direction you are taken in! I am also LOVING Jenna’s redesign. It’s SOOO pretty and I love your prophetic art. I literally feel a burning in my heart when I see such works. I love that cartoon works can totally be prophetic too. I made the declaration just a couple days ago that my work will be a conduit of his revelation and glory. Now when I draw I can feel a new strength coming through my hands.

    Let’s continue to say “no” to control and yes to a simple outflow of relationship from the quiet place~

    • I appreciate you sharing from your own experience; I understand how hard it must have been. When a seed dies it multiplies, there’s no other way. And there’s so much power in simple declaration, especially when backed by the Word. I believe you will achieve what has been destined for you, simply because you chose to put God first and get rid everything that would hinder that relationship. I wonder how many believers would actually do that?
      If God used your art powerfully in the past, I can’t even imagine how He’ll use it now! It will be amazing to watch you truly radiate. Big blessings to you with my prayers attached 😉

  2. Hello Lisa and everyone,
    First of all I am grateful to God for leading me to a group of believers who share the same passion to create and develop literature of Gods Love and truth with such life, imagination and beauty to touch the heart of both young men and women everywhere.
    Thank you Lisa for answer the call of the Lord to share your joy and gift of writing and developing characters and stories that we all can connect with and relate to and most of all the Look to the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. When I first encountered the beautiful and captivating artwork technique of Japanese animation as a young middle school er and High School er ; through the popular Sailor moon created by Takeuchi, Naoko. I became immersed in it fully, from the lovely artwork to the people and culture of Japan. I would love to go their some day and just see the beauty and wonder of Japan for myself and the wonderful people there. Sadly as I got older God reveled how the enemy has twisted His image and love in their hearts to the point of them honoring demons and idols over God the Creator of goodness and love and life all around us. In Sailor moon the Author referenced her main character as the Messiah and in another chapter the main character blamed God for all the pain when it was not him at all who caused it but evil. I can not judge her for she is under the deception of Satan’s lies. As a human myself I am just as guilty because I to blamed God at times in my life for things I did not fully understand. Once He revealed the truth to me I repented and renounced the lie for His goodness and truth.
    As for the people of Japan they have a knowledge of him, but they, “Who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” as it is written in Romans 1:25 .their love is for the land and environment only and not Him who created it His heart breaks for them at the blindness of the enemy. My hope for them as it is His longing is for their hearts to know the truth. The Truth sets people free. Hopefully one day I would love to share the truth of Gods love to the Japanese people. I love the people and culture of tradition and unity they have. I hope the stories and message of God’s love and redemption in the stories and characters He’s given us guide them to Him and Jesus Christ our Lord. and my prayer is that it can reach not just them only, but all young and old who need Godly truth in their hearts and lives.
    To Taz your post really impacted me to understand that its all about when we Surrender to the Lord he molds and shapes and gives back what the enemy tried to take who we truly are and it all come down to letting go and letting Him do what He does best. That is my longing to be transformed fully….I struggle with the thought and action as my whole life as always been hard and painful and I don’t want to go through anymore and I know that is what it will cost me to walk in that valley. Yet I know it is for my good. I will be praying for you and I hope you will do the same for me.

    Thank you all for your words that encourage and inspire and My His peace and Grace guide you always.
