ARTIST STATEMENT: In a world where tragedy, sickness and heartache seem to thrive I hear, “How can a God of love allow _______?” It’s a fair question when coming from human reason, but unfortunately, we still live in a broken world. Nonetheless, I know for me, I have experienced God’s greatest love in the heart of my greatest battles and heartaches, NOT in spite of them. Henri Nouwen once said, “There are some things about God that cannot be known apart from pain, weakness and need”. There is something about desperation that enables us to experience His love in greater measure.
God loves us unconditionally and longs for our unconditional love and devotion in return. One of the most beautiful ways to love God is to love each other through this broken world.
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16
