Acrylic on canvas, 31 x 39 ins (80 x 100 cm)

A meditation on the ‘crosses’ as we go through life. At each bend in the road there are choices and sacrifices in order to stay steadfast; but the way this journey is bound together gives life its colour, depth and richness.

‘We may have strong encouragement, we who have fled to Him   for refuge, laying hold of the hope set before us’ (Hebrews 6: 18).

Maintaining connection with the Lord is often a fight, especially when spiritual attack comes.

Keeping ourselves in His peace needs tenacity! And then His presence comes, soft and gentle.
