Dance with Jesus by Draw4life Dance with Jesus by Draw4life
This was commissioned at the beginning of the summer... actually, before school even got out. However, I had until when I got to college to get it done. Thankfully, I remembered it and finished it!

Anyways, I think it speaks for itself. This is about keeping your eyes on God and letting him lead you. Yes, it is more specific to girls than guys, but I think that guys can get the message as well: If you keep your eyes on God and let him lead you, then He will lead you to the perfect person for you.

I would also like to note that I do not mean to be racist in this drawing- however, it is hard to represent all of the different nations in a picture like this. I wanted to have a fairytale feeling to it, and thus why I decided to go with a stereotypical 'prince charming' (in the back). The girl is based on me (I see myself in the mirror everyday- I think I am my best model... so far). And Jesus is based on a couple different paintings/drawings I've seen of him. I didn't mean for him to specifically Caucasian (I know that Jesus was Jewish), but that's how he came out. Please don't hate me for it.

Thank you, and I'll stop ranting. This poster is 12x18, and I plan on selling it.

I deeply apologize for the statement below:-
... The heck?!

I read your description and all, but still:-
... The heck?!! 

What exactly did you mean by "Jesus was Jewish"? Do you know that Middle Eastern folks like Jews, Arabs, &c originally looked like Europeans? And that Jesus specifically has been seen in visions and traditionally attributed as having yellow skin and chestnut-colour hair? I know this may sound new to you, but it fact.

Yes, I'm pretty sure he's supposed to be smiling, although it's been a good 4 years since I've made this and I can't remember for sure if it was an intentional addition or not :)

Well I like to think he's smiling. Cause I like the idea that he's okay with letting Jesus be the one that's there for the woman, making her smile and all that jazz. :)

John 3:16 for God so loved the world he sent his one and only son.
Hang in there, God will bless you every step of the way:
A man was walking in the desert, and when he had reached his destination, he turns around to God and says: Where were you when the travel got rough?
God smiled to this man and said: Look back at your foot steps in the sand.
The man did as asked, when he turned, he found two sets of foot steps in the sand, until the middle, he looked at God and asked again: What happened to your foot steps?
God smiled again and said: My child, when the road got rough, that was when I was carrying you. Those are My foot steps.

God is carrying you now, and I felt I had to tell you. God bless you.

Thanks for the sound advice. I was starting to doubt if he'll come into my life. I guess God knows best!
By the way, Jesus here still looks kinda Jewish, so don't be discouraged (look at pics of Israelis; there's bound to be some guy that looks like that)!

I'm in love with five men in my life. First God. Then my father, then my step father. My older brother and my younger brother then my boyfriend. ^___^
God will always be first. Everyone else will always follow.

what a cool message! amen! God doesn't want two "half" human beings to come together, "complete" each other and marry and God is somewhere around them. He wants two "complete" human beings to seek Him, find each other and then marry and God is in the center of them and their marriage. thank God that He took the puberty-i-am-so-lonely-anybody-want-me-?-love off me, so He can fill me and make me complete until I get to know my wife.
