The artist, Graham Braddock, tells this story:
Suddenly he was looking down on his studio. He could see his own body lying on the floor. Then he was further up, looking down on his suburb. He continued to mount higher, he could see the whole city, the whole country, the whole Earth. As he watched, Earth shrank to a tiny dot in the velvet vastness of the Universe. Then a voice spoke... “How big is your problem?”
With that he was back in his own body; the same man, but with a new frame of reference.
The overwhelming problems that had driven him to fast and pray and seek after God, didn’t look the same any more. Not long after, the artist friend who told me this story became a Christian. The story stuck in my mind. Years later, I came up with this painting.
You see, you shouldn't be telling God how big the problem is.
You should be telling the problem how big God is.
And I should know!
