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.
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).
This painting is a seascape with a boat going on a journey. I turn 55 years old this year. As I continue on in my life’s journey (symbolized by the boat), I know that there will be ups and downs (symbolized by the waves). However, I (outline of the lady in the sail) must always lean against the Cross (the mast), trusting that the Lord Jesus is my Shalom Navigator who goes before me and will be beside me. I have always been a type A person, wanting to be in control. I must, instead, completely place my hope and trust in Jesus.
