From painting Heaven and hell, I found a disgusting and tempting face of the evil one. Men will tend to look heavenward when at a crossroad of great temptation, but the Bible already told us that God will make a way for those who trust in Him till the end.
I used oil pastel-coloured felt to make lilies to remind us to consider the lilies which are so beautifully clothed by God. God cares for the lilies which are here today and gone tomorrow, and His promise is that He will provide for us too. I also made white lilies of the valley on the right to remind us to consider the Lily of the Valley, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is holy and humble and came into the world to die on the cross to save sinners such as us so that we can have hope!
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.
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?”
