“ The Mediator of the inexpressible is the work of art.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“The Warrior is a Child”
This is in someway my version of a self portrait. I painted this in 2018 though it actually took me years to develop the idea of how to portray myself as warrior of sorts who keeps battling the evil in life, fighting for justice for the vulnerable, fighting for truth in the world. There is a lot of symbolic things hidden in the painting.
For 20+ years, the song, “The Warrior is a Child” by Twyla Paris has been my theme song. I’ve spent countless hours I’m sure, on my knees before God crying, totally weary, and feeling defeated. In those moments, when I just can’t fight anymore, I’m no Warrior, I’m only God’s child. God doesn’t tell me to keep going, or reprimand me, and he doesn’t even give me a strategy plan. He knows I don’t need those things in that moment. He only holds me, comforts me, gives me rest, tells me that it’s going to be ok and reminds me that I’m his child. Through this, I am strengthened by his Loving embrace.
My favorite scripture has always been the last half of Romans 8. “If God be for us, who can be against us? ..... We are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
