Soothing Creek

“To any who may be struggling to see the light and find hope, I say: hold on, keep trying, God loves you, things will improve.” Jeffrey R Holland

“My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes. Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands.”  Doctrine and Covenants 121:7-9

Story Behind the Art:

I painted this picture after a long trial our family experienced. At the beginning of this trial, I was so stressed and worried that it affected everything. I had to learn to let go and completely trust in the Lord and his plan for me. I had to learn to trust His time table instead of mine. I had to look for the peace, beauty, and calm in the eye of the storm. Life is a journey and sometimes it’s rocky, sometimes it’s smooth, and sometimes it feels like everything is coming at you at once. This painting represents life’s journey with its rocks or obstacles all around you to either climb over or go around. The water is coming toward you and is both calm and flowing, depending on the obstacles in its way. Like life, we can often feel like we are moving against the current, but if we look, all around us, there is beauty. The beauty represents God’s love for us.  In the distance, there is light. If we look for the God’s love during our trials, we will find it. Blessings and miracles will appear and we will grow stronger from the journey. - Anne Bradham
