|1 Holy is the Lord|
“For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit...
...He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church...
...The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be edified.”
1 Corinthians 14, NIV

Suffering and purification as integral part of faith
I dedicate my life to our Lord Jesus Christ and it resulted in the continuous stripping away of my idols and false beliefs - God, hope remain (image 2). If all my belongings are burnt I suffer inside, but I am purified (4). Tears inside came earlier this year when our son was arrested in a domestic dispute, he went to jail and his relationship with his girlfriend was over, we lost contact with our 2-year old granddaughter that we had every weekend with us, I just knew that there was nothing that I could do to undo this situation, so I suffered and fasted one less meal per day for about two months until our grand daughter was restored to us by the grace of God (4). If I am ridiculed for my faith and convictions it results in suffering but also in a circumcised heart and faith saves me from being angry (not always!) (3,4,5).
|4 Tears Inside|
The uniqueness of salvation through Christ that it is by grace alone, not a single hand-stroke or good deed of mine can add to that salvation. This is expressed in my posture legs and arms crossed and sitting often in mid air not touching the bottom nor the top, but also in calamity, in the mouth of an behemoth, I have a refuge (images 2,3,4). Being in mid-air also is the place where one meets Christ. That happened to me the day after I was fired, lost my income, visa, and future in the USA (2,4).

My desire in art
Seeking God through art again - what an avantgarde that is! I consider this to be my mission, by finding Him in my life (2 - 5) worshiping the Lord (1) and discovering His mysteries (6 - 10).
