A promise is always most treasured when you are down and out. When you are at your lowest, you cannot imagine happiness. That is why we need to have a mental image that gives us hope. Israel had been in exile when Jeremiah gave this promise from God. So I imagine that their mental image is the land which was promised to them in Joshua 1 – where God promises to bring them back to their homeland.
The Bible contains all His promises. Whenever we are anxious or fearful, reading His Word gives us hope and comfort. He promised us – His children – that He will never leave us nor forsake us. He promised to protect and guide us (His children). Knowing all these, we can face our future with courage. Other than that, a rainbow is painted as the background. That is because the rainbow symbolizes that God is faithful and that He will not break His promises. The colours of the rainbow remind me of His beauty.
The world is about to be flooded and there are still obstacles between the snails and the Ark. The sea between the Ark and the snails represents the obstacles the snails have to overcome in order to be safe from the flood. I chose to illustrate this because the Ark, which represents God, provides a sense of hope that motivates everyone – that no matter who you are, to face all your challenges and not give up.
