So, have you talked yourself out of your art yet? Have you found enough reasons why you just don’t have what it takes? Are you still feeling guilty for having a passion that may not have a job description? Do you feel like you’re cheating a little bit if you get to actually do what you love?
What if you began to see your art as something other than your idea? What if it was bigger, more necessary than just a dream? What if you taking the next baby step toward creativity is actually you stepping into a bigger story? Art is a gift wrapped up in a box of grace straight from the hand of God. Stop asking questions about it. Stop trying to talk your way out of it. Receive the gift, say thank you, and begin to live like you believe it’s true.
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.”
What is your gift according to the grace given to you? Name it in the comments – I won’t tell anyone, I promise.
