I Look to You
I don't paint religious paintings often. A matter of fact, I think this may be my first one... This painting was inspired by my own spiritual relationship with God. I believe - often our lives are clouded by darkness and trials but among the hurt and anger, God is always with us and longing to shine through us. There have been times in my life when I've been surrounded by beauty and so many wonderful things but couldn't even see the blessings in front of me because I was so focused on what I didn't have or what could potentially happen. Admittedly, I worried way too much. But I've learned, as long as we have faith in Him, we can make it through the darkness and the hard times in our lives. He gives us peace.
"I keep my eyes on the Lord. Without Him I will not be shaken." Psalms 16:8
