Spiritual Isolation

Spiritual Desperation

View at full size.

OK… I am not sure what to make of this one. My intent starting out was to do a more lite hearted fantasy image. But as it developed it took on a darker tone. The idea of spiritual desperation began to emerge… but then developed into something that more closely represented spiritual isolation. She is trapped and isolated, desolate. The city in the lower right is visible and inviting and she looks like she might want to be there but is unable to go there. In a sense she has chosen and has accepted her isolation and is resigned to it. Obviously were she has chosen to be is not a good place. It is shrouded in smoke and embers, strewn with chains, and enclosed by a fence. We all need to be in fellowship and supported by others… to do otherwise is unhealthy. When you remove a coal from the fire it quickly dies.

Scripture: “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete.”

“This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” John 1: 1-7
