Art Reflections: Life in Christ

by Rachel Sim

It has been at this Grotto where I felt an outpouring of the Holy Spirit into my heart, giving me the courage to face certain trials over the last year. Through all these, I was certain it was through the powerful intercession of my Heavenly mother that made all these possible. Her gentle gaze reminds me that she is constantly loving and interceding for me in Heaven. How blessed we are to call Mary our Mother!

During the arts jam session with Arts Ministry, this was the bible verse that was shared and it resonated a lot with me in this season. It was a really timely reminder to set my eyes on things of Heaven, to remember that I am simply a pilgrim on this earth, on this journey towards the Promised Land.

I’ve been struggling a lot during this quarantine period and oftentimes, life seems pretty bleak and I’m tempted to abandon ship. But through that arts jam, the verse spoke directly to my heart, encouraging me to persevere on this journey. To set my eyes on the crown of glory that awaits me in Heaven, rather than fretting over all the crosses in my life. Yes they are heavy and painful and crushing, but I am assured that in my suffering, I come even closer to Jesus.

Indeed, these struggles and pains are only temporary, but life with Jesus is eternal (and very colorful!! YAY)
