From the Artist:
Years ago, I began a journey of discovering my desire to paint stories from the Bible when I painted my first piece of Jesus walking on the water for my grandmother. I’m very proud to release to everyone my latest painting and also the last painting in this series. “Walking With Jesus” depicts the glorious moment right after Christ rescued Peter from the waves. Pulling him up, Jesus said to Peter, “Why did you doubt?” And together they walked back to the boat as the storm cleared. So many of us have been programmed to be afraid of God when we mess up and doubt. When I read the story, I see this as a joyful moment because we understand Jesus is pure love, forgiving and helping us in our human failings with his arms around us and a warm smile on his face. Jesus turned an experience as horrible as losing faith in front of onlookers and nearly drowning and dying into a beautiful and happy moment not only Peter treasured, but all believers will treasure for all time! In this painting, Jesus shows Peter how to walk on the water to the boat putting their right feet forward one at a time. He is holding Peter’s trembling hand and upholding him with his right arm lovingly wrapped around Peter in what I like to call the “bro hug”. Jesus was not a distant, unseen, scary entity dwelling somewhere that we could never be good enough to go to… He is God with us! When we try our hardest but still mess up, Jesus clears our storm, rescues, teaches, helps, and loves us as he puts us right back on top of the water, walking with Him bathed in the light shining from the Father in Heaven! The story I’ve painted here is what a life of walking with Christ is all about!
