"Trust in the Lord"
24"x36" oil on panel (original: sold)
Proverbs 3:5-6 contains one of the Lord's most earnest pleas: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
This piece has been a reminder to many that such can be the case, to all who reach humbly outward and clasp the outstretched hand of Jesus. I love these words:
I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year,
"Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown!"
And he replied, 'Go out into the darkness,
and put your hand into the hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light,
and safer than a known way."
- Minnie Haskins (1875-1957)
