One of the things I miss most about working on my art is that it created a quiet little place for me to focus on God. I tried to focus on coming up with pieces connected with scripture where I felt connected to God’s promises, his love, his moments of inspiration through HIS own art: Nature. Because God reveals himself to us e v e r y w h e r e.
My “Reaching” piece came after digging through a deep depression. I had been trying so hard to FEEL something. I felt utterly weighed down and lost but when I read this verse I felt cared for in a way I still can’t quite explain. Words can’t really explain how deep it went for me – I think the words just spoke to my SOUL.
I had been hidden in my little ball, but now God was calling me tenderly from my cold, dark place.
The rain was over and gone. The flowers are coming through the ground. The time for singing has come.
I think the verse truly says it all.
