What some of you might not know about me, is that I’m a hugger. I love hugs, when I go through tough times I always turn to people for comforting hugs. This image is from a movie, although I’ve changed it slightly to make it relevant to me.
During this one particular hardship, I searched for a hug from the Son of the Living God.
Now I know that sounds crazy, some of you might not even believe in God. But I prayed for weeks and weeks, and was reduced to tears on most Sundays when I went to Church. I needed Him, and I was falling apart during this time. On this one particular Sunday, I got lost in worship, and prayed again. I then got an image, which I will never forget.
Jesus came down on a cloud, and I was on the ground on a hill reaching my arms out to Him like a child. He came down and wrapped His arms around me. As soon as His arms locked around me, I felt the sense of overwhelming love and comfort wash over me.
Now you see my reasoning behind this picture? Every time I need comfort, all I have to do is replay the image in my head, and the same feelings wash over me like it did before.
Even though God isn’t physically here, He gave me a way to be with Him. And so I turned to Google and tried to find an image that looked like the image in my head, this one was perfect. (When you swap them around).
Now even though I can’t physically see Him hugging me, I just look at the canvas and know that He is, and that He is right here with me.
