Encouraging Card with Psalm 25: 4-5 Prayer For Guidance on the Back © Suzanne Davis Harden
This Encouraging Card s a variation of the portrait of Kerry and Stormy that I made, which is also available as an Original Fine Art Print here in my Etsy Shop.
The image is a visual metaphor of Psalm 25:4-5, which is printed on the back of the card:
“Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.” ~Psalm 25:4-5
The woman in the painting is walking down a path, which represents the path of life. She comes to a point where she stops and she seems to have a choice to make.
The church on the hill represents her faith.
She can move on down that long path and up that steep hill to her goal, though it will be a tough climb, or she can stop and make no more progress because she is tired and weary and she just doesn’t think she can make it to the top.
She is waiting…she must make a choice and she is praying.
We all invariably come to such hard places in our path in life.
The mule represents the cross the woman must bear, the work that she must carry up that steep hill.
Mules are traditionally stubborn and the woman must lead him for they are a team.
Whatever God has given us to do for Him, He will give us the power to do it.
Philippians 4:13 (ERV) “Christ is the one who gives me the strength I need to do whatever I must do.”
We have a loving, compassionate God. When we have no more strength and feel we can go no farther, He steps in and helps us complete what He has begun in us. He will never give up on us. He will help us get up that hill with whatever task he has assigned us, no matter how steep it is.
