Foreign Ground

130 x 101.5 cm

If You were to withhold Your rains from me, have the sun avert its gaze, command the ground in which I am so firmly rooted, to be barren and dry, you would be right to do so and I would have no case against You, for who can stand against Your righteous decree and Who would be my Defense, my Counselor, my Mediator if not You?
For You do not delight Yourself in the destruction of men, nor do You remain distant from them and their affairs, but You have chosen to make Yourself known, to display Your wondrous works as to dwell with them… Love… what a Mystery.
