Jesus’ wonderful promise in John 15:5 assures me that all I did in His strength is never in vain. As a child of God, I experience His protective arm on my shoulders. He plants joy in my heart as I obey Him, bear fruit that glorifies His Name, and watch Him multiply them!
Inspired by Isa. 42:3 and Matt. 12:16-21, which illustrate the Hope and Promise given by God to people who look for Him and ask for help, I looked for reeds in the Singapore Botanic Gardens and found them by the lake. The reeds were next to dry land, which led to the idea of combining the wick and reeds for this artwork.
Our faithful God has worked miracles to many who are diagnosed medically barren. This is evident in the Bible and even in my wife, who was told that she would have difficulty conceiving but is now a mother of three. Thus, we should willingly receive the hope of life in Jesus with open hearts and thanksgiving!
