FROM MY HEART:
I have a dear friend over for a few days from out of town. I hadn't talked to her in a very long time and then she came to my house and I was able to tell her all that God is doing in my life.
Having to tell your story encapsulating a year's worth of things is weird, especially for me since this year has really become the greatest adventure of my life! I found myself thinking, "I can't be talking about my life." God is right when he says, "No ear has heard, no eye has seen, no mind has conceived what God has for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)" I used to think that scripture pertained to Heaven. I am sure it does refer to that as well, but I am experiencing that scripture here on earth. I would have NEVER believed that the things that are happening to me were actually going to happen.
All it took, to begin with, was the surrender of my dreams to God. I admitted to him that I was frustrated I wasn't really living in my purpose and that I felt artistically and spiritually dry. That I felt like I wasn't using my talent and ability. He took my dream and has made it a reality that is honoring to him and to me. I am not being exploited for my talent and no longer desire to do ANYTHING in order to get it. I know that in God's timing the right projects will come my way. I had this long list of what I wanted from God and my life. I feel like crushing it and giving it to the wind. He has given me far more than what I've asked or imagined. Before what was appealing was the shiny stuff. The material stuff. Those things collect dust and never satisfy. What is fulfilling to me is seeing my progress. Seeing my resilience grow. Seeing myself become a better human and artist. Being so confident in myself because of God. Truly feeling comfortable to be ALL OF ME. Seeing the changes that my pursuit is causing in other lives. I recently received one of the most amazing birthday cards ever. It told of how my brokenness has helped someone in their faith. What a better prize for me than to have a beautiful young soul like that believe who made her and who she is in Him! Man, I'm getting emotional just thinking about it! THANK YOU FOR READING. Thank you for being here. I love you. I hope you have an amazing rest of your day!
