I believe with all my heart that we are wired to be creative. For as long as I can remember it's been my heart's cry to be used by the Lord. I wanted more than anything to know what my gifts were, so I wouldn't be guilty of not using them.
Then once He helped me discover what they were the fear set in. Was I good enough to share them? Would anyone else benefit? Can I just tell ya that sitting on your gifts gets you nowhere. We are called to use them. Each one of us has something to offer. Something that is unique to only you. I know many of you have the gift of encouragement. You've encouraged my heart tremendously time and time again. Others of you make your home a haven for your families and still others create with food etc... Truly feeling full and complete only come when you allow the Lord to use you.
It literally makes me want to weep when I see how far He's brought me in the last few years. Things that were bottled up in my heart...secret desires and longings that only he knew about...those are coming to pass. I get to paint and create and write and share my life and make friends. It's almost too much...this complete feeling of bliss. How did I get here? I want to pinch myself. Sometimes I'm so busy doing and stressing...wondering how I'm supposed to get everything done that I forget to take a minute, pause and let it sink in that I'm doing exactly what I've been called to do.
My favorite house painting so far...can you guess why???
Have a blessed day.
