Finding Rest in Righteousness: ‘Elijah in the Wilderness’


We are sometimes left physically, mentally, and yes, spiritually fatigued. We have jobs, families, studies, interests, and so on. It’s easy to often feel exhausted.


But artworks like “Elijah in the Wilderness” by Frederic Leighton (18301896), completed in 1878, may leave us with wisdom on how to feel refreshed despite our busy lifestyles.
