Artist Interpretation -
The image the Lord showed me of the photograph being developed in a dark room came with a whisper of “the process” - a message, I knew in my spirit, was about our walk with Christ and the steps necessary in order to develop a deep relationship with Jesus. There are three important steps to developing a photograph that are very similar to what, as believers, are crucial in our own walk with God. The three steps are exposing the film to light, developing the image, and printing the photograph. When our lives are exposed to the light of Christ, the areas that were once colorless and underdeveloped begin to change and as the colors emerge, the true picture is revealed. As the light shines and exposes the areas deep beneath the surface, an image of who we are in Christ begins to appear, the person we were actually designed to be. When we allow the Lord to take the image of our life and develop it to its fullest, we will find ourselves living out the authentic “picture” of who we are, developed by God’s own hands. It’s only after we’ve spent countless hours in some of the darkest times, been washed, soaked, rinsed and “stabilized” so that we can be exposed to light without damage, that the printing portion of the development process can occur. Called to be the light of Jesus on this earth, our fully developed pictures tell the story of who He is and what He has done for each of us. Developed through times of trial, through time spent in His presence and in the Word of God, it’s the process that prepares us for our time on this earth. And it’s "the process" that produces some of the most beautiful pictures.
“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” - Philippians 1:6
