I had another “God encounter”, and based on it, am writing a story and created a painting in acrylic to illustrate it. I pray it will bless you.
The woman who found love
There was a woman who had been wandering in the desert for a long, long time. She wandered under the hot sun, until her skin was sunburnt, her lips were cracked and peeling, and she felt completely exhausted.
From time to time, she would dig down into the sand, and found bits of muddy water to sustain life. But over time, her ability to dig became weaker, and she began to wonder if her life would ever change.
Then, in the distance, she saw a figure walking towards her. His step was sure and steady, and when He came to her, He offered a drink of cool, clear water from a jug that He carried at His side. The woman was extremely thirsty, and drank and drank.
She finally dared to look up into the man’s eyes, and what she saw there completely amazed her. She saw a look of such love, such compassion, such forgiveness, that she began weeping before Him. Kneeling at His feet, she opened up the only thing of value she had to give: her love. All of her life, she had carefully guarded and protected it. But she began pouring this love out, like perfume, as she worshipped at His feet.
Gently, He spoke to her, and said “I have seen your heart, and known it since you were created. I know you have longed to be able to express your love; know that you are loved.”
This woman found the love she had always been seeking, and it caused her to pour her love out in return. She also realized that she would never be thirsty again, as she followed Yeshua.
