Drowning In God’s Love

Artist Statement

This Life will bring trials and tribulations, Dark skies and stormy Seas, but God!... The Great I Am. He said if you are searching, your body He is immersing. In what may seem to be broken, will now be restored. He says, reach for Me, Take My Hand, I Am the Lord.

How it fits into contest

My entry for this art contest is an image that we all may face at one time or another. As we deal with spiritual attacks on our life, we immerse of life in Christ for protection in the mist of the chaos of raging seas and stormy skies. God is fit to bring us to safety and Bless us through any weapon that would attempt to harm us, physically, mentally or spiritually.


I just give praise to God for allowing me to come up with the idea and to paint it into reality.
