It’s the unanswered requests of a heavy heart that often confound and confuse us in the journey of faith. Why would a good, gracious, loving God remain silent in our despair?
We have all experienced failure, heartache, and loss that often leaves us with nothing but a desire to quit, to escape, and to find an easier path. In those moments we have the choice: do we continue to move forward in hope, or do we choose to give up?
There are days when hope arrives in a gentle whisper, while despair screams from the rooftops; but these momentary feelings do not have to define who we become.
Art, in its various forms, has the power to inspire hope, to challenge popular thinking, and to thrill the human mind through unique and creative expression. Yet, when art is “generic” or copied, we often describe it as lacking in substance, authenticity, and beauty.
It is often very easy to get caught up in the moments of life, whether it’s a season of pain, a season of life change, or a season of success. We, as human beings, tend to get lost in the present reality, whatever that might be, often forgetting the larger story going on around us…
Often in life we find ourselves overwhelmed with all of life’s expectations, reaching for something to find hope and meaning within the constant busyness within which we find ourselves. Finances, family responsibilities, social status, religious obligations, and other commitments take more time than we originally intended and we’re left looking back on each season of our lives searching for meaning within the constant activity.
