This painting is an illustration of responding to the Father’s invitation to enter into His presence. This place requires you to surrender your desires and expectations and receive the Spirit of God that makes you His child. Leaving the place of self-dependence, self- protection and even self-confidence is an active and sometimes violent decision. It is a choice to abandon control; to hand over the reins of your circumstances and trust that the Father will take care of you. This act of faith brings us into sincere relationship where we find ourselves hidden in Him; loved, protected and empowered.
