Avatars: What Should a "Faith Reaper" Avatar Look Like?

Updated on May 30, 2016

Putting on the Full Armor of God

Source

A New Avatar


After reading drbj's awesome hub Choosing-Perfect-Avatar on the importance of avatars, it got me to thinking, exactly what should a “Faith Reaper” Avatar look like? Of course, drbj was so kind to comment, after I asked drbj, in a comment on her hub, what a "Faith Reaper" Avatar should look like, and drbj responded that my current avatar “was easy on the eyes”. LOL

In my mind, I was thinking along the lines of a powerful female prayer warrior or warrior of spiritual battles, as I have been there and done that on both counts.

Actually, my profile name of “Faith Reaper” came to me, as my given name means “reaper” or “harvester” and I just threw in the “faith” part, as I am growing in my faith each day. I thought that the new "Faith Reaper" Avatar should have on the Full Armor of God, as that is actually what I put on each morning to be prepared for anything that the enemy wishes to throw at me in this life. I have fought many battles, spiritual battles, and won. So, I thought how appropriate it would be for "Faith Reaper" to have on the Full Armor of God, or at least some of it, i.e., the Helmet of Salvation, maybe holding the Sword of the Spirit, which represents His Word, as His Word is sharper than any double-edged sword, and maybe a Shield of Faith. There is also the Breastplate of Righteousness.

Vinaya Ghimire is Awesome


All those who know Vinaya Ghimire via his great hubs here on HubPages, know just how truly talented and knowledgeable he is in many, many areas.


So, I thought about taking one of my regular photos of myself and adding to it to create such a spiritual warrior and possibly using it as an avatar. However, I knew that I did not possess such a talent for such a creation or design.


Instantly, Vinaya popped into my mind, as one who did possess such great talent no doubt! My next thought was, Well, I will just ask Vinaya for his help and go from there. I did just that, and he graciously agreed to offer his help, and I am forever grateful to Vinaya. I am so honored that he would take the time out of his very busy schedule to design such an avatar for me!


I had already chosen the photo I wanted to use to be added to, in the creation and design of a new avatar. I emailed Vinaya, and attached the photo. I also sent some sample images along the lines of what I was thinking. The only thing that I actually did was to send a photo, and Vinaya did the rest!

What is the Full Armor of God?


In His Word at Ephesians 6:10-18, He tells us exactly what is the full armor of God.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.


And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Emphasis added.)


The Belt of Truth

Belt of Truth


The Belt of Truth helps to keep one's armor in place, holding up our spiritual guard to protect us from being vulnerable and exposed.


The Breastplate of Righteousness
The Breastplate of Righteousness | Source

Breastplate of Righteousness


As Proverbs 4:23 tells us:


"Above all else guard your heart; for out of it are the issues of life"


The Breastplate of Righteousness guards our hearts, as our hearts are very susceptible to the evils of this world. This righteousness is not self-righteousness, but comes from our Lord, and that is how we are able to keep our hearts strong and pure for Him.


Shield of Faith


The Shield of Faith protects us from one of the enemy's deadliest weapons, doubt! When we place our full trust and faith in God, then we can hold our shield up high and it holds.



The Helmet of Salvation

The Helmet of Salvation

Helmet of Salvation


The Helmet of Salvation is crucial, as we cannot survive without it. It protects our thoughts and minds, as we know the truth, which sets us free!


A Warrior in God's Amy

Sword of the Spirit


The Sword of the Spirit represents the Word of God, which is the only offensive weapon in the full armor of God, as the Word of God is alive and active. His Word tells us that it is sharper than any double-edge sword.


Source

"The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." ---James 5:16

Remember to Put On the Full Armor of God Daily


Each morning, even before getting out of bed, please remember to put on your full armor of God to protect you from the enemy's schemes.


Remember that the full armor includes: the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, The Shield of Faith, the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit.


Please take time to meditate on His living and active Word to guard your thoughts and your heart against anything the enemy and those flaming arrows he will and does throw at you each day, so that those arrows will just bounce right back off of you.


When you are armed with the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, which is like a double-edge sword, it will cut through the lies of the enemy and you are able to break free of any strongholds.

How wonderful it is, when two people from totally different cultures and beliefs, can come to together in collaboration and create something in harmony!!!


I want to give a great big shout out to the amazing Vinaya for his graciously agreeing to offer his expertise in this field of design. I am forever grateful and he has touched my heart so deeply in doing such for me.


Also, drbj, thank you for your insight as to what an avatar is really all about, and for giving us an education on that subject. You're the best! Thanks for inspiring.


And finally, a great big awesome thank you to Mary Craig (tillsontitan), and her amazing avatars!!!

      Hello Dear Ven!

      Well, I'm so glad you found it via my question. Yes, it is a great Avatar that Vinaya came up with from a photo I sent to him. He is so talented. I'm so glad you found the information about putting on the Full Armor of God interesting.

      I like to use it when I am writing about spiritual warfare, as one need to have the Full Armor of God on for sure before going into spiritual warfare.

      You are my 100th commenter on this particular hub. Hmm, that deserves some sort of reward. Well, all I can come up with at the moment is a virtual hug from me, here in southern USA, to you!

      Hi, Faith. This is a wonderful hub, I have found out only just now, after reading your question about search results. I also tried to search for your name on hubpages and then, through those results, selected this hub. Your avatar is so great here. But I do not see it on your profile. The description presented here is also so wonderful and interesting. I thank you and Vinaya for this great, wonderful knowledge of God's armour.

      Faith, yes Vinaya did a fantastic job, but without any decorations shield, belt...etc. I would still consider you an Avatar for God.

      You guiding spirit helps all those who know and love you, and no devil can beat that.

      Voted up across the board, except funny

      My sweet and precious friend, I love this hub. It is so creative and full of inspiration. And, I love the avatar. But then, I had already created my own mental avatar of you. My mental image of Faith Reaper is one of beautiful clouds in the background of a bright blue sky with a beautiful angel, wings spread and eyes to the heavens. My angel holds in her hands the hearts of all that she has touched in her lifetime here on earth.

      I am so glad that I was led to this hub today. I am as always, inspired and moved by your Faith.

      Dearest Micheal,

      Wow, what lovely poetry in a comment. I am humbled once again by your lovely comments. Thank you so much. I use "Faith" as part of my hubber name, as I am growing in my faith each day, and the "Reaper" part came to me, as my given name means "reaper" or "harvester" and I know of His great love for me as I have placed my full love, trust and faith in His love, that divine, true agape love, to get me through any trial in this life. And there have been so many, but He is always so faithful to get me through each and every one of those trials.

      Your kindness towards me is beautiful, and your writing is a beautiful gift that I truly do hope you continue to share with all here and beyond and with whomever you come into contact.

      No, thank you dear sweet friend!

      Hugs and love from southern USA to you,

      Faith Reaper

      I actually forgot how beautiful you are ..

      remembering the sweet flower who posed in the picture

      the glow in her eyes was only matched by the shine in her heart .. flowing as a bright aura... to any who gazed upon her, For she is the kind of woman ..men can only dream of meeting... Faith is just a word.. meaning... true of spirit..full of innocence.. keeper of the Word. The feeling of a light warm rain ..that refreshes my spirit and cleanses my soul.. inspires the words... one longs to bring forth from deep within.

      Thank You.. my friend.

      Hi Dearest Romeos Q,

      Well, thank you very much for such enthusiastic comments here as to this newly designed avatar! Vinaya was so very gracious to help design such an avatar, so all the credit goes to him.

      I like to switch out the avatars every now and then. When I write a hub of spiritual warfare, then I will break out this warrior avatar.

      I am so glad you do not consider this a run of the mill article, which places a smile on my face this night. : )

      Yes, I have to be me, as this is how He created me to be me. God loves me and my uniqueness and so I am just fine with just being me!

      You are always so generous and kind in your comments. You're the best!

      Blessings, Faith Reaper

      Well, what a thoroughly engaging Hub, Faith Reaper, boasting wonderful imagery, and packed full of useful life-changing verses.

      It may seem a little biased, but I think your avatar is the best one, because it is visually exciting, and has more basis in truth than the others, and is a perfect image of victorious fortitude over past battles, so I'm sharing this entertaining, and quite different, article, which triumphs over many of the run of the mill articles to be found on HP.

      Best wishes for a healthy, and wealthy week.

      Yours Sincerely,

      Hi Dearest Cat,

      So glad for your visit here! Thank you so much for your wonderful comments all around.

      Yes, I wanted to try something a little different, and drbj's hub on avatars inspired me to go ahead and do such. Of course, Vinaya, who is really talented in photography, art, graphics design, etc., so graciously agreed to work on it, and this is the outcome. My eyes are actually hazel/greenish, and I know it was hard to tell from the photo I sent.

      ha ha ha, No, I am no hero by any means, but thank you for such a comment sweet lady. It is very important to not be afraid to share one's faith and explain why one believes the way one does no doubt! He has worked miracles in my life and I have come a long way, but I have a long way to go too. He healed me of breast cancer in 2011, which I have written about here too.

      I always love to praise Him for His faithfulness is so great! He is working miracles right now in my sister's life, which I am about to publish a hub this day about her.

      I will switch out the avatar, from time-to-time, and bring back my normal self (hehe), what is normal? I believe today may be just a day that I do so.

      Hugs and love to you too, Faith Reaper

      Faith Reaper,

      Well my lanta lady; you've knocked me socks off! This hub is packed full of everything... what haven't you done on this page? Wow!

      In all seriousness, this is beautiful and I love your message. Lord knows I have room to grow and you so lovingly offer guidance, comfort and support. This is very rich in extremely wonderful content and I don't see much like that of its kind around. Thank you for that and for not being afraid to share your faith in a time and place when so many want to question it.

      I've been meaning to get over to this page since I saw your avatar change and how adorable I thought it was, but now... it means so much more, what a beautiful explanation... and your new avatar is almost as beautiful as you are... yes, you are definitely soft on the eyes! :-)

      You are certainly something of a hero Faith and I am grateful for you!

      Yes, Vinaya is very good at what he does no doubt!

      It is a very beautiful "recognizable" photo of yourself!

      I was inspired, as I have stated here, by drbj's hub on the importance and purpose of an avatar, and it got me to thinking exactly what should a "Faith Reaper" Avatar look like, and this is what we came up with.

      If you just click on my Pinterest, Google+ or Twitter buttons, you can see my previous profile pic, as it is just a photo too. I will switch it back, from time-to-time.

      I appreciate your kind comments here.

      I like your new Avatar, but I don't remember your old one. It seems to have been a popular one, too. Vinaya is very good at what he does. I've thought about an Avatar because it is best that I keep a low profile on my own true identity because of my job. However, here I am with a very recognizable photo of myself. I have an old browser, so I could open the videos with audio only, but the music was cool.

      I hope you read drbj's hub on avatars, as I am picturing one in my mind for you too, and it would be a fierce warrior too, as I know you have had to fight some battles in your life as well dearest Leslie.

      Thank you for the sooo gorgeous part, but Vinaya has truly done an awesome version of what possibly a "Faith Reaper" Avatar should look like. My eyes are actually hazel/greenish, but I know the photo I sent to Vinaya to add to, was hard to really see such. And I am just fine with that :)

      (why do i feel like playing with Barbie's right now? haha)

      This was definitely a, um 'detour' from your usual awesome works, my friend, but - i like it! I really really like it! (lol)

      Hi Joseph (Lord De Cross),

      So glad for your visit here this morning. Religion is religious, but it is that intimate and personal relationship with our Lord God that is the key!!!

      Thanks for your kind words. I was actually going for that spiritual warrior who puts on that Full Armor of God each day (as explained here) due to that fact that I have been through many spiritual battles in my life.

      drbj's hub was the inspiration, of course, to get me thinking, and plus I am trying new things. I will switch it back to the old one from time-to-time. My eyes are actually hazel/greenish in color, but that can be adjusted :) Vinaya will be away for three weeks at the moment.

      Of course, I cannot provide salvation to anyone, but He sure can and does!

      Vinaya was so kind, as I have stated here, to graciously agree to create such a design, and I am so humbled in his doing such for me.

      Enjoy your day my friend.

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hi Dearest Mary (till),

      Thank you so much for such generous comments. I am the one who is so humbled.

      Vinaya was so gracious to agree to help with such a design. Yes, he is a gem here on HP no doubt, just as you are and beyond!

      No matter how you came up with your avatars, they are awesome and creative! I really just love both. I am glad you are pleased with how I featured you and your fab avatars, along with your true fab self :)!!!

      I appreciate the votes up.

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper

      I am truly humbled by this entire hub! You are such an example of what faith should be, it shines through all your hubs. Then, having Vinaya create that fabulous Avatar. He, too is a gem here on HP. Always willing to help and writing such great hubs.

      This hub, along with your new Avatar, are just two more ways you've shown us your faith and inner strength.

      Now for my confession. Both of my Avatars were not created for HP but are pictures of past Halloween costumes. Cruella was always my favorite, and the Queen I thought fit with my name here, Tillsontitan...the titan of my hometown Tillson. Thank you so much for the lovely tribute, you've really honored me in a special way.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

      Hi my dear friend Ricky (thelyricwriter),

      Always a blessing to me when you stop by to read! Yes, that is what I was thinking of . . . exactly what a "Faith Reaper" (what one reaps when one has that deep faith in our Lord God) should look like. I know you meant unshaken :) However, it very well can be shaken when we are faced with such trials and tribulations which all of us do face each day no doubt about!

      Thank you for your kind words here. I appreciate your encouragement and support. Yes, Vinaya has a great gift of design in his field.

      I also appreciate the votes up!

      God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Voted this up, useful, awesome, beautiful, and interesting. It is the perfect avatar for you because it is what you represent. Your faith can be shaken. That is what I admire about you Faith Reaper. Everyday, you show God your appreciation and how much you love him. You have the ability to share it with the world. The perfect name and avatar. Vinaya did a great job on this. Your an inspiration to me and many others.

      Thanks Mekenzie,

      I appreciate your thoughts here. In my profile, I just changed the avatar just now and explained. I like to change things up a bit. And I will use the former avatar from time-to-time too, as I know a lot are so used to seeing it and are familiar with it. I see that many change their avatars a good bit.

      Yes, Vinaya did a Great job no doubt!

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      I've thought about changing my own avatar but feared people would get confused and NOT know it's me. When you changed yours awhile back I was a bit confused - but just for a little bit. Writing a hub about it may help with identification.

      You have a GREAT following of hubsters ... I see many many read this hub so they'll be clued in when you transform your avatar. ;)

      Vinaya did a GREAT job!

      Thank you so much, as I know you understand perfectly my dearest sister, as there certainly is a battle going on and we know we truly must put on that full armor of God daily to get through each day, especially picking up that Sword of the Spirit!

      I appreciate your constant encouragement, support and understanding.

      And the vote up :)

      God bless. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Looks like the votes are about in, and so the new avatar will be official on Monday :) Of course, my current one my show up from time to time too.

      Your heart is so full of love, hope, passion and fun!

      You understand the battle we as believers are in .. each and every day. The enemy has NO authority to touch you but he sure does send his fiery darts - You suit up and go girl! The Lord is on our side and He never forsakes us. The victory has already been won!

      Great Hub - Great Avatar!

      I am blessed twice this day with your visits! Thank you for your wonderful comment as to the new avatar here. Yes, dear Vinaya is very special indeed!

      Well, I was ponder just what a "Faith Reaper" avatar should look like after reading drbj's awesome hub which discusses the importance of avatars. And this is what I cam up with :)

      Yes, praise Him for the full armor of God that we are able to suit up each day and prepare for battle before going out into this world, especially now!!! The enemy is on a rampage, but we know the end of the story, and so does he, so that is why he will attempt to devour all in his path, as he knows the victory has already been won!!!

      Amen!

      Thank you so much my lovely sister. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

Well, in reality, if it were not for Vinaya, there would be no new avatar! LOL, I love that . . . the enemy has no chance :) No, the enemy best tuck his tail and run! LOL

      Hi Stolas,

      So glad for your visit here this day!

      Yes, I figured that too, the anti-grim reaper, and I like your idea for how that would appear, as I could not picture that as you did.

      I am glad, though, you think the armor of God makes more sense :)

      Hey, everyone, if you have not read Stolas' mind-blowing and amazing poetry, I highly recommend you do so. I read one of his poems and knew right away, I must follow him. He is truly a gifted poet without a doubt, trust me on this one!!!

      Hi Dearest Martie,

      Yes, Vinaya has done a wonderful design here. I do love that particular scripture, as it is very powerful and inspirational, as you have stated here.

      I have not noticed that one of the clouds really does look like a foot, and that is perfect because I forgot about including in any imagery here, what it says in Ephesians too about "feet fitted with the readiness . . ."!

      Yes, I love all of Mary's avatars that I have seen, and these here, are the only two that I know of on HP since I've joined.

      I really love that I remind you of hot cacao, as it is not only very nutritious in it's rawest form, but very decadent too :) !!!

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper

      Perfect avatar just for you, Faith. Vinaya has done a great job.

      Ephesians 6:10-18 was one of my favourite scriptures at a time - quite powerful and inspirational.

      Have you noticed the foot, or maybe feet, in the clouds (in your avatar)?

      Mary's avatar certainly deserved the 2012 award for Best Avatar. It was quite captivating.

      I have to repeat myself - you remind me of hot cacao, because your hubs and comments have the same calming effect.

      Take care, dear Faith :)

      Thank you for your enchanting comments. This was one photo I submitted, that I also had used on my recent parody hub, where there are many more photos :)

      I hope you, Miss Tiffy and Gabriel are enjoying the weekend. We have a long weekend and I am so happy!

      In your before picture as sent to Vinaya I would have to say I was very enchanted and would say on that particular day you were created - God must have been a true art lover. And I say amen to that as I am a fellow art lover myself, lol.

      Thanks so much for the kind comments of the whole process of the creation of a new avatar from the first initial thought to its completion.

      It was a fun endeavor, but I know it was work for Vinaya!!!

      So, I am the one reaping from Vinaya's hard work and expertise in design.

      Yes, you should really check out Vinaya, drbj and tillsontitan (Mary) . . . they are the best! I learn from them constantly. Plus their work is always a joy to read.

      I am always happy when you visit dear friend, and thanks for sending the Angels, and they will be making a round trip back to you and your precious family.

      Interest bit on Tillsontitan. Her hubs are always a pleasure to read as are yours.

      As for a favorite avator, I can't think of one. As I stated before, I see the name and I have my own impressions. Silly, I guess. I just got to be different in that state of mind.

      I always learn so much from reading your amazing hubs, where your talent and expertise is evident!

      Wow, what a lovely thing to say that you learned something from me. That has touched my heart deeply this day.

      Please know how much I appreciate your time and effort here, as I know just how very busy of a man you are, and to take time out of your precious schedule, is most appreciated, please know.

      I am glad you are pleased with my end note in this hub, as it is really how the world should be, although we may all not come from the same culture or have the same beliefs, we can work together in harmony and peace, which is a beautiful thing in my mind.

      As you are a professional photographer, then your photo is just right to use, so that people will see the real professional, YOU, and your kind face!

      drbj's hub on avatars is very interesting and, yes, Mary's avatars are always amazing.

      As your hubber name is vickiw, and your avatar is actually vickiw, then you are good to go on your avatar.

      Whereas, I use the hubber name of "Faith Reaper" as explained in my hub, and my current avatar is of my real self, and not really representative of a "Faith Reaper", well, it is, but you know what I am saying. I began thinking on all of this after reading drbj's great hub on the importance of an avatar. I love her choice of avatars too.

      Again, thank you so much for your encouraging words.

      Yes, Vinaya is awesome at his expertise no doubt!!! He is also so very gracious in agreeing to design the new Avatar,which I believe he has outdone himself here!

      LOL, I forgot I used my photo, I mean, "Terri's" photo in my recent parody hub too of "Terri Alexa", but it is okay, as I think I cleared it with "Terri" then, LOL!

      Yes, that last video is so very silly and hilarious to say the least :)

      I apreciate the votes up. You're the best!

      God bless. Love you, Faith Reaper

      Faith,

      I knew nothing about the Shield of Faith, Armor of God etc. because I come from totally different culture. (You have said this beautifully in your end note.) However, as a spiritualist, I have faith in the Almighty and I seek salvation.

      Thanks for giving me an opportunity to learn from you.

      I think Mary's avatar is cool. The first time I noticed her on HP was because of her interesting avatar. I have not checked drbj's hub but now I want to know the author's view on HP avatar.

      I have never thought about creating my own avatar. The photo I use across multiple online platforms was shot by a professional photographer.

      Thanks for plugging me.

      PS: Maria, Vickiw, BIlly and Susenttenaples thank you my dear writers and friends for appreciating my work.

      Faith: The avatar is perfect for you. You continue to amaze me in what you come up with and the message and lesson we can all learn from you. Vinaya did a wonderful job on this. He is so talented. I agree that Mary or "Till" is a great inspiration for avatars. Thanks for sharing your avatar process with us - quite an engaging hub!
