My artwork is about ‘Eternity’. A place to go after my death brings me hope because our earthly life is perishable. However, accepting Jesus into my life brings hope and His Word in John 14:2 (NIV) gives me the assurance I need: “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?”
God promised Abraham that his descendants will have Canaan as their homeland. (Genesis 26:4-5)
As the Israelites were leaving Egypt to cross over to their Promised Land in the desert, they yearned for something different besides their daily diet. In God’s grace, He provided them with manna at dawn and quail at twilight. (Exodus 16:10-16) God always keep His promises. Besides our basic needs, He even provides us with extras. It reminds us that God’s grace and blessings are aplenty. We should work harder to extend His Kingdom. Better things are yet to come. The lily symbolises purity, hope, and life in Jesus Christ.
My piece illustrates God’s might and magnificence personified in Eagles. The silhouette of the big eagle is God and the small eagle is man. God promised His daily provision of strength for a believer through life when we fix our eyes upon Him, upon His cross. As we pray unceasingly and trust Him, He will empower us.
