Acrylic on stretched canvas

7″ × 5″

In times of trouble we know that there is only one place to look, to God.

This beautiful little girl’s face filled with incredible depth is looking to God for strength, hope and love. This is what we all need.

I was inspired by the Whitney Houston version of the song " I Look To You"

As I lay me down Heaven hear me now
I’m lost without a cause
After giving it my all
Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun
After all that I’ve been through
Who on earth can I turn to?

I look to you I look to you
After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong
I look to you I look to you
And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song, I look to you

About to lose my breath
There’s no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door
And every road that I’ve taken
Led to my regret
And I don’t know if I’m gonna make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

I look to you I look to you
And when all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong
I look to you I look to you
And when melodies are gone In you I hear a song, I look to you

My levee’s have broken, my walls have come
Crumbling down on me
The rain is falling, defeat is calling I need you to set me free
Take me far away from the battle I need you, shine on me

I look to you I look to you
After all my strength has gone
In you I can be strong
I look to you I look to you
And when melodies are gone In you I hear a song, I look to you
I look to you I look to you
