This drawing was done earlier this month by my 15 year old nephew, Joseph. Another of his drawings was shared here for Word Filled Wednesday.
I think this picture tells the story of Good Friday
better than I could.
Joseph has a testimony to go with this drawing so that is what I will share today...
I have a personal testimony with this. I haven't been able to draw for the last 2 weeks and I felt horrible and heartbroken. I actually thought I wasn't going to be able to make it through. But with the help of others and prayer, I somehow managed to make it through. Someone told me to just put a pencil to a sheet of paper, and pray, even write down my prayer. I prayed, and my hand just started moving along the paper. I had absolutely no idea what I was drawing, until I was probably about half-way through it. I thank God for giving me back my ability to draw.
No matter how bad the pain is, no matter how sharp the thorns may be, no matter how hot the fire may get, God is always there in it with us. He will always be there to help us through, even if it doesn't feel like it.
Jesus, seeing that everything had been completed so that the Scripture record might also be complete, then said, "I'm thirsty."
A jug of sour wine was standing by. Someone put a sponge soaked with the wine on a javelin and lifted it to his mouth. After he took the wine, Jesus said,
"It's done . . . complete."
Bowing his head, he offered up his spirit.
