At the beginning of this year, I heard a voice that told me a word “Light”during my prayer, which gives me the idea and goal to create this Light of Hope series. It’s a collection of the lights from nature that reminds the presence of God. As James 1:17 said, “ Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
The first piece I painted called” Your light sets me free“, reminds me that once I was in the darkness, but now I am in the light. In 2015, my life changed completely, I lost joy and hope. I had lots of things going on that are too heavy for me to breath. I was looking for joy that I had before. But I couldn’t do it by any efforts I made. Then Jesus found me in 2016, He called me out from the darkness, and bring light to my life. He set me free from the anxiety, weariness and burdens and bring me joy that I never had before. As John 8:12 said:”I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”
The birds in the most of the paintings represent people who are attracted by the Light of Jesus, closer they are flying to the light, more joy and freedom they get.
