There is a bible verse that says something like: “Pick me up as I am sinking in this deep water, take me out of the water, and lead me to safety.” I painted this for desperate hearts and to let them know they are not alone. The isolation and loss of covid left so many people with hardened hearts. Covid created a great deal of loss and isolation that left many people with hardened hearts and depression. Amid all this, what we can be sure of is Jesus, who will lift us up, save us, and lead us into light and life. When it is hard and chaos is all around me, I give my heart to and depend on Jesus. It is He who hugs us tightly and pulls us out of everything. It is He who takes us back to solid ground.
