Earlier this week I shared about how I'm taking part in a fundraiser for cancer research with proceeds going to Lungevity. The fundraiser is being organized by Cut Artisan Hair Design in Flemington, NJ, with over 20 local artists lending their talents to create art on a heart. The art will be on display the entire month of February (at Cut) and available for sale.
I asked many of you what you would do given this opportunity. What kind of art would you create? I received a lot great answers. In the end, I opted to recreate art from the "Worship (Sensate)" painting I created last year.
I'm titling this one "Surrender". Sometimes, especially in light of our troubles and difficulties, we have to come to a place of surrender in our hearts. It's often hard to come to a place where we can confess that God is good, even when our circumstances are far from it. There's a song Called "Blessed Be Your Name" that speaks about offering praise to God, even when there is pain in the offering. My hope is that this art can help bring comfort to someone who may find themselves trapped between what they believe to be true and what their current reality is telling them.
