You know those people who fight battles that we don’t know ANYTHING about? They don’t share their most darkest, hurtful times on social media. Unless you know these people directly, you probably don’t really know their struggles. Those are some STRONG people. Those people need attention today. They need it because they don’t beg for approval, and they single handedly, fought through some DARK times without a cry for help.
I know someone very special to me that recently went through some tough times. I’m not just talking about the “I ran out of coffee” tough time. I’m talking, something so hurtful that could really discourage a heart. I’m talking, the earth shattering and heart cringing kind, that really no one knows anything about. It also broke my heart because you want to do so much, but these kind of people are so strong, they normally don’t let you. I’ve always believed, that God gives his most toughest battles to his most strongest soldiers. This was a perfect example of that. I’ve never seen Him give someone I know a problem, without having people there to surround them with love, encouragement and prayer.
This last week, my heart has rattled. These strong people I’m speaking of, and you know them too... have brought back hope and Inspiration to my heart. I wanted to paint something that would reflect my love for this special person and show her that God doesn’t give us problems without FIRST giving us wings. Through those problems, trials and hurt...we grow. He wants us to spread our wings and grow towards Him, because He makes all things new. He will give you new battles to come, but the people and love is already there to help you through those battles.
I didn’t know a better way to reflect that then this painting of a bird covered in leafy stems. It displays the power of healing and growing and puts it into something that’s going to make us soar.
We’re all fighting battles, some just hide them better then others. Love your neighbors, because we don’t have to do it alone. 🙌🏻
