Confession: I am in love with shapes and lines, and for this reason I find icons helpful.
If the word icons offends you, edit it in your mind to say symbols. In my house it’s the same thing.
Symbolism keeps me afloat by crystalizing an emotion or an experience, drawing it out where I can take a look at it, treasure it, and let it go (undesired emotion) or soak it in (desired emotion).
Each symbol is rich with meaning and context, though I will not explain for you.
How does Jesus feed you grace?
