Bowed Low for me came from at 3 themes
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?

When my Father-in Law passed away, I found myself singing one of his
favorite songs based on this Scripture: Revelation 21:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

I was commissioned to recreate "Bowed Low" a little differently.
This image reminds me of the Psalm 139, but particularly verses 14, 17
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

The Lamb has several wonderful passages for me
Genesis 22:8 - Jehovahjireh - God will provide
"God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.
Passover Lamb - Exodus 12:13
Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are.
And when I see the blood, I will pass over you;
Redemption Lamb - I Peter 1:19
but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
Behold the Lamb - John 1:36
And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!"
Powerful Lamb - Revelation 12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony,

TRANQUILITY OR DESOLATION?
My thoughts were inspired by the following Scriptures and thoughts
Sometimes we resist what seems too simple.
The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
I Corinthians 1:18
WHAT DOES IT PROFIT?
Watching the Apprentice, reminded me of this Scripture
For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? - Mathew 16:26

THE WORD BECOMES FLESH
This painting of a new born child was first inspired by Galatians 4:4
"But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman,.."
Additional Scriptures which speak of His Amazing love:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14
