He Leadeth Me
Drawing - Graphite, Carbon And Charcoal On Paper
One of the warmest memories I have from my childhood was that of a sunny day when I was walking along the sidewalk with my Daddy. I was only five or six years old, and I had my little hand tucked into his. I skipped along beside him, proud to be with the one I was sure was the biggest, strongest, and wisest dad in the whole, entire world... secure in his love and care for me.
I've often reflected upon that day and thought about God's unfailing love for me as His child, and how even though I sometimes feel small and weak, I can take comfort and rejoice to be with the One who holds my hand in His gentle care. With those sentiments in mind, I began this drawing, hoping to convey Jesus' special love to His children.
In an unexpected turn of events for me, during the time I was creating this picture, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. As I faced several surgeries and chemotherapy, the Lord used this picture to reassure me and remind me of His care during these difficult times. As I drew in the charcoal background, He whispered in my heart that He is holding my hand and leading me through even the darkest moments. This reassurance has given me strength and hope throughout my journey.
My prayer is that this picture would be a precious reminder to you, too, of God's hand guiding your life. Whether life seems full of sunshine, or whether you find yourself walking tentatively through the dark unknown, I pray that the realization of His tender love and care will guide and encourage your every step.
May God grant you peace, joy, and hope as you place your hand in His.
