Illustration Friday - The Missing Piece
The word for this week is "Missing". It really hit home for me because some one is missing from my life and adjusting, coping, and working through the emotions has been quite the challenge.
A bride who is dressed in red so in love and ready to be loved. Yet her crown has fallen apart and her heart has wondered away. Torn between what is right and what she feels.
As I drew this I also thought about how it would feel to be void of God. To loose the connection to Christ and the death that would follow. Her expression is the same in both aspects. Things fall apart, our heart cries out in pain, we become numb, and expressionless. Yet the greatest light in the darkness is Christ. He will not leave, will not go back on His love, and He speaks only the Truth. God has a plan and purpose for all things, and it is through our circumstances that we develop our character for God and for eternity.
So if you're in the same boat with crashing waves and storms as I am, lift up and praise Him who will not forsake you and gives His unfailing, ever massive, amount of love to you. And may He bless you today.
