Behind The Art - Desert:

I have never been able to locate the source of this text. It was sent to me years ago as a Christmas card. Basically, the meaning seems to me much like Psalm 46:10 – “Be still and know that I am God” – challenging, like that, suggesting the risks and rewards, in stillness.

Risks? Looking beyond attainments, career, honors, wealth, “things” for a sense of personal significance.

Rewards? Well, the text alludes to one example. It is Mary saying “Behold, the handmaid of the Lord, be it unto me according to thy word”. Luke 1:38
