How long, Lord?

How long, Lord?

Psalm 13: How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? I asked God the question, "How much longer, Lord?" Additionally, the harder the trial the more we direct the blame at the one source we know that can take it all away; God. As a Christian, I have found a common thread that runs through each trial. Right smack in the middle of that heavy dose of suffering...

THE VIEWER

THE VIEWER

SIZE: 24X24 MEDIUM: ACRYLIC Do you know the Gindai fish story? This colorful Hawaiian bottom fish is in the snapper family. They swim the indo-Pacific waters up to depths of 1000 feet. Cool fact! The color red is a short wavelength which is the first segment of the visible light spectrum. As visible light decreases in the water, red and yellow are the first two colors that will disappear. This fish, vivid in colors red and yellow, will begin to blend into its surroundings the deeper in the water it travels. However, as the fish surfaces coming closer to the...

In-Between

In-Between

Title: In-Between Standing within the in-between where words are merely spoken. In-between the complexities of life. Alone. Broken. Shattered. Questions of the heart only for the unseen. What mends? How does one get beyond the in-between? One who stands at the top of a tower looks down. One who stand at the top of a bridge looks out. But you there standing in-between, look up! For you are not abandoned nor alone. You are merely standing without excuse in-between this life and the life yet to come! Art by Glenn Lamp Meditation by Glenn and Heather Lamp Word of God...

Green Pasture

Green Pasture

Title: Green Pastures Size: 36x72“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:1-3‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬One might ask why I titled this painting, "Green Pastures?" It certainly isn't a pasture and the painting barely has the color green on the canvas. This is one of the reasons art is subjective; what you see isn't always the intended meaning. For example, this painting is based on the gospel hymn, “He Leadeth...
