"House Upon A Hill" (The story behind the art)

A few years ago, a friend invited me to a concert. Amanda Lindsey Cook

She shared a song that changed the intimacy in my relationship with my Creator.

This Painting was created from that moment. Below, I share the lyrics. I'll just leave this with you.

"House Upon a Hill" Artwork by Artist Tina Lawver

It's quiet

In this house upon a hill

You won't mind it

Some things you can't know 'til you're still

In the silence

Where your spinning thoughts slow down

In the stillness

Things have a way of working out

Allow me to introduce myself again

I'm the One that knew you before time began

And I've been waiting for you to let me be your friend

Everything you ever need is everything I am

I am, I am, I am

Take your chances

There's nothing here to lose

Ask your questions

I promise you the truth

As you're ready

I wanna hear your heart

Is it heavy?

Where wounds have left a mark

Allow me to introduce myself again

And I was with you every place you've ever been

And I'm the One that held you when you couldn't stand

If you're wondering who can heal your brokenness

I can, I can, I can

I'll meet you

In the house upon the hill

How I want to

Show you I am real

Allow me to introduce myself again

I'm the love you used to think could not exist

I'm as sure as where you're standing

And as free as the wind

You don't have to reach for me

'Cause this is where

I am, I am, I am

I am, I am, I am
