A painting by Bea Policarpio

Acrylic on canvas, 18×24

WHERE MY TRUST IS WITHOUT BORDERS, 2015. Acrylic on canvas, 18×24.

I’ve always been a fan of Hillsong United. This painting was inspired by their classic song, Oceans, from their 2013 album Zion. But because I’m home tonight recovering from being sick instead of going to Youth practice, here are lyrics from my current favorite from the new Empires album:


Through waters uncharted my soul will embark
I’ll follow Your voice straight into the dark

And if from the course You intend
I depart
Speak to the sails of my wandering heart

Like the wind
You’ll guide
Clear the skies before me
And I’ll glide this open sea

Like the stars
Your Word
Will align my voyage
And remind me where I’ve been
And where I am going

Lost in the shallows amidst fear and fog
Your truth is the compass that points me back north
My Captain
My soul’s trusted Lord
All my allegiance is rightfully Yours

UNCHARTED WATERS. One of my favorite quotes is “When a wave comes, go deep.”

Sleep tight, the faithful captain will lead you to the light of day.
