Light Of Peace

A wise man once said that our minds are like great bodies of water. Sometimes numerous thoughts, stimuli, or emotions act like rough winds, beating our minds into waves resulting in confusion, anger, sadness, exhaustion, stress, sickness and all the other problems we face.
It is only when we surrender our hearts, let go of our cares, and be still that then our soul becomes like it is intended to be… refelecting exactly what is above it. In this painting, we are reminded of “the peace that transcends all human understanding (Phil 4:7)” as we are dazzled by an almost impossible display of the heavens as it reflects on the perfectly peaceful glassy sea.
To me, Lighthouses have always held some symbolism to Jesus in that they shine in the storms, keep us from the rocks in life, offer a harbor and shelter in the storm, and guide us. Jesus said ” Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid”.
In this painting, the lights are on and the pathway is lit for you to come in to the warmth of Christ’s love, as ships from all corners of the sea, and from all nations are being drawn to the glorious and everlasting.
