"Jesus wept." Jn 11:35 When I asked the Lord what He thought about the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, He didn't say anything, He just wept. So in this picture from the Series, the only one I intend on drawing this way, Jesus weeps. It always struck me as odd that Jesus wept over his friend Lazarus dying, when he was about to bring him back to life. Wasn't it a pointless waste of emotion? I don't presume to know the Lord perfectly, but I feel like war (and a million other things) are situations where Jesus is in control, still on the throne, and still weeps. He knows He can restore, He knows He can heal, He knows He can bring back to life, but He still weeps because grief affirms value. If He did it, I want to do it too. Weep, feel pain deeply, and still trust that He has a plan. This is the Jesus I know, even though it shocks me. The One who comes running with a ring and a robe and throws His arms around you, before he even knows if you're going to stammer out an apology or not.
I drew Russia as well as Ukraine because it was the missing half of this set, and I don't get to decide who is worthy or ready to sit on that stool. That's why these images are only being sold as a pair together.
