Have you ever felt embraced by God?

I have bible study with what is mostly older women. They are always talking about being hugged by Jesus. And finally yesterday I stated that I had never felt hugged by Jesus. I have felt moments of clarity and strength, I have moments of insight and peace. But I don't get snuggles from Jesus. Have any of you felt a hugged by the Creator? Or do you think that maybe God touches us where we are in life?

  • I have felt inner peace & strength, but an embrace- not sure I can say that I have. I imagine it would be a wonderful feeling tho. :)

  • I think it's sad that we have been cowed into submission and taunting and mocking. So much so that we are sometimes afraid to post things in fear that they will be used in a cruel way

  • i don't look at it that way, ad. this, in particular, is a bit private, and only to be shared with those open to understanding and receiving it. to do so on a public board (like R&B, that is open to all, even those who would 'use in a cruel way' or mock/taunt/laugh, etc)would be, well...i'll keep my pearls, thank you. kwim?
    i'll pm you later.

  • Yes... there have been a couple of time when I literally felt held. There is a song (I know your not much for Christian music lol) by Natalie Grant called Held and I can completely relate.
