This piece is a part of my own spiritual battle. And 4th in a series based on Psalm 23. This is verse 4 “and even though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” In one of the darkest times of my life, I had to run to God. I repeated this chapter in my head when evil thoughts tormented me, and would be comforted by the all encompassing love of God the Father. This painting is a visualization of the light that Jesus was in my darkness. I was broken and he mended me. The canvas itself is broken but I made something beautiful out of it anyways, just as Jesus has done for me. Instead of turning into the darkness and letting it surround me, I turned to God’s light and let it warm my cold heart and mend my broken spirit.
The connection between “Valley or Death” and the topic is the battle in the mind. Spiritual warfare is all around us, and it gets me so excited to know that not only do we have angels that fight for us every single day, but through Jesus we have the power to stand up and fight. When we pray, angels go out fight the battle. We are called to be in constant prayer. We are called to have our mind set on truth and righteousness and in this painting, it is a representation of how I chose to turn towards light. Towards truth and righteous thoughts and the love of God. Because of that, God pulled me out of a dark valley. He guided my path and set it straight.
