I was inspired ever since I saw this verse: “In distress you called, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah.” (Psalm 81:7)

It took me a month of waiting before God showed me the image to create. I knew I was supposed to make something when I saw the verse, and I always have the temptation of coming up with the design myself but then it never “speaks.”

When this image hit me I knew it was the one. Notice how the girl is being tested. It’s like the Eagle is waiting, saying, “will you call Me?” But He is not waiting passively— His wings are engaged for immediate takeoff.

And notice how the dragons are all looking at the Eagle— not the girl. They can approach and try to frighten her but they cannot touch her.

With one swoop of His wings the Eagle could be right there— but He waits because the girl does not yet realize how much she wants Him.

You wouldn’t think of thunder as being very “secret,“ but sometimes the Eagle is very near to us— and for us— and we don’t know it, or we don’t believe it.

Sometimes the galleries will fail to display images and instead display a single color or a very pixelated image. This can happen because some of my portfolio images are very high resolution, (even up to 15,000 pixels across- Photoshop's maximum export size) which can cause them to load slowly for some users. 

Here are two things you can try if you think something weird is going on:

1. If you see a solid color, try refreshing your browser tab.

2. If you see a blurry image, first try waiting a bit if your internet is slow, and if that doesn't work, try step 1.

Also keep in mind that depending on your internet speed, when you click on one of these images for full-screen mode, it can take up to several minutes before you see the full-resolution version!
