I found this picture from the downloads of wallpaper for my cell phone. There’s something so intriguing about it. I don’t know the artist (my apologies), but I like the picture.
First there are the two hands upon which the smaller figures stand.
Then, there are those two robe-clad figures.
All amidst a shadowing of multi-hued orange, yellows, reds… it’s full of light.
What comes to mind for me, is the words from the prophet Isaiah, chapter 1:18, “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:though your sins are like scarlet,they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson,they shall become like wool.”
I just think that everyday, all around the world, in the remotest places, in the most populated places, in high-rises and little tents, people are battling the pain of family discord, political anger, unforgiveness, bitterness of soul, separation and loneliness.
When we look at the great loss of life in recent days in Syria, Ukraine and Philippines, it’s like we all just want to plead for a sense of peace and reasoning!
As depicted in the Artist’s work, the two strong hands of the Lord are reaching out pointing people to reconciliation, undergirded by His strength and direction. There’s healing to be found, if we’d just extend our hand.
