Man Of Clay ~ Man Of Glory Art Print

Man Of Clay ~ Man Of Glory – Art Print by Joseph James (Hartmann) – Finally, after several years of creating some art prints for some of my poems, we now have them available in 12×18 inch prints. Each print is printed on high quality metallic paper called Ice Gold Metallic with an 80# text weight. It is stunning and brilliant as the light touches the metal flakes and colors and makes them sparkle. This print is titled, “Man Of Clay ~ Man Of Glory” and was written as the Lord told me about my life and how others tried to use the gifts He had placed in me for their own glory. The Lord wants each of us to walk in the destiny He has created for us so that we might be truly free and give the glory to Him. Man Of Clay ~ Man Of Glory

Man Of Clay ~ Man Of Glory – Print Text

  • Looked into the mirror, this morning, I did,
  • Not sure what I saw, could it be me;
  • Some kind of clay, a shadowy thing,
  • Rose up from within and then covered me.
  • As I pondered, being somewhat perplexed,
  • I heard this voice, then turned my ear;
  • “My son,” He said, “this is not you,
  • But merely man’s covering, please don’t fear.”
  • “I formed you in perfection, in your mother’s womb,
  • And placed you in a body fashioned just for you;
  • I gave charge to others, to help guide you through,
  • To help you discover, all the treasures I hid in you.”
  • “But many were jealous, they wanted yours too,
  • They molded your clay to accomplish their dream;
  • They wanted My glory, they wanted your life,
  • To lift themselves up, to My place of esteem.”
  • “You have not yet become, that which you will,
  • Let Me rain on you, again and again;
  • I’ll freshen this rigid clay, with My love, so true,
  • And renew it again, to its original skin.”
  • “You are My child and if you will,
  • I’ll take your pain, and heal you again.
  • You’ll soar higher, on the wings of My love,
  • And I’ll show you the treasures, I’ve hidden within.”
  • “I’ve given all you need, yet this journey is long,
  • Don’t look to others, I’ve placed it within;
  • Take My hand and walk with Me,
  • I’ll show you some new things, as we begin.”
  • “Together we’ll bless others, and you will see,
  • Even those who’ve hurt you, including your friends;
  • It wasn’t for gain, you were placed in their hands,
  • But to extend mercy and a love that never ends.”
  • “Love without forgiveness, is no love at all,
  • Just as mercy without grace, can never finish this race;
  • So, walk in your freedom, using treasures within,
  • Sharing with others, helping them find their place.”
  • Looking into the mirror, this morning I did,
  • Not sure what I see, could it be me;
  • Gazing into the eyes, seeing His glory,
  • Then noticed, it was beaming through me.
  • In an instant and yet through the years,
  • His hands gently changing my inner space.
  • Gone are the scars, and healing’s replaced,
  • Even feel a freedom, to soar and to race.
  • All of those things, I thought were my own,
  • Even some friends, now fleeing away;
  • I found that their armor and their way of life,
  • At best only bound and hindered my way.
  • Looking again at this old ‘mirror on the wall’,
  • I wonder how my friends and others will find;
  • This hidden treasure, that’s deep in my heart,
  • Then look inside theirs, and not journey blind.
  • Oh, how I pray and how my soul longs,
  • That each precious soul will grasp this line;
  • To discover the jewels, nestled deep within,
  • And let Him reshape and free them to shine.
  • My Father’s the Master, I am the clay,
  • Lord, mold me and make me, do as You may;
  • To be a vessel of honor, one who carries Your Name,
  • To all who are lost and filled with dismay.
  • Let Your glory so shine, may Your Kingdom, now come,
  • Expose all the lies, let them fall to the ground;
  • Your ways are simple, Your wisdom is sure,
  • Your way is freedom, let this message resound.

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

SDDL Website

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
