Almost 13 years before Now I See was written, Zach Elliott painted three large pieces to hang in his home. The pieces were to communicate visually, simply and in large format the invitation to live a life of continual adoration, transformation and love.
The first piece was white symbolizing the brilliance and holiness of God.
The second piece was a natural green symbolizing the growth and maturing of new life.
And the final piece was blood red symbolizing the poured out nature of mature love.
These pieces, their colors and their story inspired Zach to hand-make a few simple beaded bracelets that he wore daily, both separate and in combination. A white VU bracelet for adoration, a green VI bracelet for transformation, and a red VO bracelet for love. Each bracelet was made with a dominate color and theme but never without the balance of the other colors. During different seasons of prayer, contemplation or mission, the bracelets remain a constant and subtle call to adoration, transformation and love.
