– my personal inspiration of his painting “Walking on Water”


Kim’s paintings really inspire me, especially his painting “Walking on Water”. He is well-known for his vision miracle painting. In this painting illustrated Jesus walking on the water of the Sea of Galilee in front of his followers. In the late night, when his followers row the boat across the lake, the waves were splashing against the boat and the strong wind made it difficult for them to move forward. When they began struggled against the storm, they saw Jesus walking towards them on the water. Jesus asked Peter to take courage and come to Him on the water. Peter was afraid and began to sink. Matthew 14:30-31 writes:

30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”


Often times we have lost our faith in God and begin to sink into desperation. We often burst into tears and complaint why our life is filled with obstacles and losses.We become tired physically, spiritually and felt that our life is worthless. Kim’s “Walking on Water” brings the WORD of God to us, no matter how hard we might go through the day to day trials, if we have strong spiritual belief and Faith in Christ, he is always there reaching for us, comforting us and our tears will turn into joy…….
