ART & INSPIRATION FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
The opaque murkiness of an impenetrable sky surrounds you. Your mind swirls with empty thoughts. You feel alone, lost, unapproachable, frightened. There is nothing but an enclosing darkness that makes your mind swim.
A somberness encumbers you – shrouds you, yet causes you to shout out for just a glimmer of light. Your heart pounds within your chest – beating like the sound of a dusty old grandfather clock. Your ears listen attentively to each and every sound with anticipation, fear, helplessness.
Your eyes plead for just a tiny glimpse of light and then it happens. A small star in the distant sky slowly moves towards you. The light that shines from it, bounces to other heavenly bodies and they too come to life. This one bit of light now encompasses the entire sky and it’s as if someone turned on the switch.
Your eyes open wide. You breathe it all in. You feel safe. Every sense is enlivened by the glory of it. You are released from the mantle of uncertainty. The pall has been lifted. God is in the heavens and He has drawn you to Him.
