Get out of the Boat
20" x 20"
An empty boat is a good sign! It means we "got out of the boat". This painting is meant to remind us that we need to leave our safe little boat and start walking on water. The words that came to me were: Trust, Faith, Obedience, Peace. I urge you to get out of your boat and take a leap of faith toward what God is leading you to. Be encouraged by God's invitation!
Whenever I choose a painting subject, it is after much contemplation. My husband and I discuss issues and topics that we need encouragement about. My art is a “get out of the boat” project. It is so easy to talk ourselves out of doing things we really want to, but fear gets in the way. We are afraid to step out in faith.
A serene rowboat came to mind when I envisioned the peace of God. A very quiet scene with glass-like water. The water does not look intimidating or scary but very inviting. Almost inviting us to step out confidently. He isn’t making this decision hard for us. He is encouraging us. Step out and don’t worry and it will be just fine.
Art created with the Father.
