It is God heart to bless and provide us with every provision. Sometimes our prayer may seem like it is not answered, that He did not hear us. However, we need to understand that God’s timing and ours is different and He is always on time even though it may feel last minute (to us). In my opinion, God prefers to wait until the last minute to answer our prayers to bring about His will and His purpose for us.
I drew a picture of a child’s happy face from receiving the promise of the verse; yet at the same time, with sadness in his eyes from living in a foreign land. To show how the hope endures through circumstances, I wrote the verse repeatedly in the background, on a discarded piece of cardboard (which homeless people often use for sleeping).
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?”
