The Holy Way


In Isaiah 35:8 we read, 
"A highway will be there,
called the holy way."

Isaiah was a prophet and he prophesied this
at a time of great crisis in Israel.
The temple was in ruins,
people were in despair.
And so God gave them
a vision of the future,
the holy way.

When we are beset by challenges,
we should not lose hope because 
our God is a God of the impossible,
and He always makes a way!



I finally finished this canvas,
"Hold on to Hope".
The word "Hope" almost disappears
into the background.
That is because hope is illusive,
and we have to make a conscious effort
to hold on to it.
How?


 By always hanging on to the Word of God!
After all, it says in Proverbs 4:20-22:

"My son (and my daughter), 
be attentive to my words,
incline your ear to my sayings.
Let them not escape from your sight;
keep them within your heart.
For they are life to him who finds them,
and healing to all his flesh."

  5. Hi Patsy! I love the second painting. It reminds me of childhood memories and the fact that the best things in life are found in the most simplest means.
