Well, I was long absent from this blog. I was a bit busy – I had enough time and thing to write here, but I was short of time and idea to draw pictures! I wanted to give a picture when I wrote here, so I was waiting for an idea…
But today’s the first anniversary for my baptism. How can I wait for writing my gratefulness to God and people?
As a matter of fact, I have recently drawn one picture. But this time I had a difficulty to explain about it.
Today, I show it here.
It’s the picture of lamenting people in the Bible, wearing rough clothes, sitting on the dusts and throwing them on their heads.
You might find strange that I show a tragic picture on my celebrating day. But I think lamenting is the way that the Lord gave us, when we are fallen in human conflicts.
When you are insulted by someone, can you really love him or pray for him from the true heart? Can you theologically reason yourself, why other people in the world lose their lives and suffer, whereas we do not? Isn’t there some time that you can’t stand your own failure or defects?
At such time, we can lament in front of God. I might have spent the first year only with the beginner’s enthusiasm. Next year my belief might meet with more conflict, inducement or other obstructions. Then I will just lament instead of getting angry or pretend to be reasonable.
