hold still

We were privileged to spend Sunday afternoon at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live, a fantasy art convention. Our entire family qualifies as art appreciators, including my niece Emily!

It takes a while to see everything, as it takes several passes by each booth to truly take it all in visually. Surprisingly, I didn’t think I was going to see anything I had to take home with me, until I passed by a particular artist in Artist Alley. I was suddenly drawn to her work and particularly a specific piece.


I wasn’t sure exactly why, but I fell in love with this print. It moved me emotionally and I began to get excited. I asked the artist what the name was and her response validated my feelings. “Hold Still” I told her that is exactly what God has been telling me! “Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10 I am amazed by how personally God speaks. I’ve been thinking about “Hold Still” and I’m thankful that God has encouraged me once again to be still and trust Him. Now I have a visual reminder of His word!

The feathers remind me of Psalm 91:4 “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.”

The aviator goggles remind of of Isaiah 40:31 “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings as eagles.”

The folded hands remind me to pray, wait and trust. . . “Hold Still”

    I really like the symbolism in the picture, and the pic. He is unique in how He speaks to us.
