The Hand of God

I think this is my new favorite painting of the Savior.  It's called The Hand of God by Yongsung Kim.

The Hand of God by Yongsung Kim

It appears to reference the time when Peter tried to walk on the water with the Savior but let his fear overtake his faith and so Jesus had to reach out a hand to help him.

It reminds me of the times in my life when I felt like I was absolutely drowning and unable to breathe because of the weight of my trials.  But my Savior is always there with arms wide open, just waiting for me to look up and allow Him to help me.  He can heal me, strengthen me, and give me hope.

Also, like Peter, I have learned that fear and faith cannot co-exist.  I need to choose faith.
