For a Single Purpose: Joshua I (2013)
Author note: This is the last week of art story, ending on Thursday the 2nd for a while. It should come back from hiatus with a new series. I got a lot of things planned behind the scenes offline, one of which is later this month; a live painting session. For tickets and other information, please click here.
I hope all is well with you. In today’s art story of the day, we speak about Joshua, the person that led the Isrealites into the Promise Land after Moses died. He was single at that time based on my research which is why he is included in this series. As you know, all artwork featured here is up for sale and a portion of all sales goes to the Cassondra Lenoir Foundation. The Cassondra Lenoir Scholarship Foundation is for first generation college students and the deadline is looming close. If you are interested, please click here for details.

Joshua into the Promised Land? All by himself?
Yes, I agree with you. Leading thousands of people into a land they never knew existed, but only following one person (really they followed God), is a lot to handle by yourself. I know his predecessor, was married and still had problems with the complaining of the Isrealites. However, it was not marked that he was married as he led them into the Promise Land. Joshua was a man of faith, and in fact it was he and Caleb, who were one of the spies that checked out the Promise Land. They had the faith, but unfortunately the people believed otherwise of the negative/evil report.
Whose hand is that over Joshua’s head?
It is Moses, who is Joshua’s predecessor, who gave him the authority to lead the Isrealites into The Promise Land since he was permitted not to.
That’s all I got to say for today. I hope you like the story of Joshua, because yes his use of his single status, I believe was one of the most awesome experiences to have, Thank you for reading.
