An Eagle's View

18 x 36 - Acrylic on Canvas - Private Collection (Seoul, S. Korea)

The story behind the work:
Isa 40:28-31 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He will not grow tired or weary,  and his understanding no one can fathom.  He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;  but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. NIV

I love to teach at the BEDTS schools in South Korea, as the students are so eager and as mature people, have committed a substantial amount of time to their studies.  BEDTS is an anachronism for Business Eagle's Discipleship Training School, a ten month school for businessmen and women who are wanting to be discipled and mentored in the ways of the Lord.  I began this painting with the school in mind and was pleased to gift them with it in December!
