Solitary Path, 40 x 30" Oil on Canvas
What I also have found out - even more recently than this painting - is that I'm not alone, after all. Though, it isn't how I expected my journey to look - it is a path with purpose and it is leading somewhere... even if the landscape and pathway are as yet unseen ahead.
More importantly, I'm led - not abandoned... and I'm led here for a purpose. The purpose is to learn to walk by faith, not by sight. To trust the hand that leads me - I'm learning that I don't need to see it all in order to trust. I've come to know His hand - and His intent - is always good. I've come to know that I am loved deeply, personally, intimately by the God who created me, and rescued me from a life apart from Him. These are things of high value... not always easy to embrace in the moment, yet - in the end - worth every moment of learning.
