I love art that speaks prophetically to me or that broadens and deepens my vision of the Lord, His Kingdom and my place in it. In my meditation suite I am surrounded by iconic art that drips with Presence. It is a constant reminder as I write and create, that the unseen realm of the Kingdom may become mysteriously visible and thoroughly voluble. Codye’s art is like that. I have long had the privilege of seeing her paint at events where I am speaking. It is entirely possible to have fresh encounters in worship as she paints in partnership with her First Love. Her first book, Chronicles of the Treasury…Journey of Destiny resides in my own creative space.I have great pleasure in recommending the person, the visionary, the artist, the worshiper - Codye Reystead!

Each piece that she creates carries a prophetic message for every person that has the pleasure of viewing it. I know that this book will bless you not just as a pieces of inspiration and beauty, but also as a tool to take you on a journey deep in to the heart of the Father.

Her prophetic gift coupled with her artistic gift makes for exceptional viewing and inspiring reading. Let this book give you fresh and unique insight into the very heart of God.
Codye has demonstrated her prophetic gift to us both in painting and word for many years now. She has consistently sought the Lord in preparation for our annual worship and arts gathering, Resound. She brought visual expression through paintings that have often been confirmed through the teaching of our guest speakers. One such expression is Vessels of Glory. I invite you to enjoy the beauty of the painting and the expression of the word. I hope that you will find it as encouraging and uplifting as I have.
