I was on a journey last year. I had created brilliant, adventurous, all-consuming plans for my life. I knew exactly where I was going and who I wanted to be. But tragedy struck before I could take even the first step. And I was instantly faced with a new reality. No direction. No path.
The theme of the Denver Community Church art show, where I displayed this piece, was was nearness, or propinquity. But I don’t understand nearness right now. I understand distance.
To me, nearness is a decision and it is rarely tangible. More often, it is distance that feels real. But I am determined to believe that God is always near whether I feel Him or not.
Join me tonight and choose to trust that He is near, that He is fighting for us, and preparing a way.
And someday, we’ll find land.
