"We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!"
Ephesians 2:10 AMP
You are free to be who God has created you to be. Are you dreaming with God? God has such a beautiful destiny written for each of our lives, and He's able to fulfill it!
Along the way of our journey, as we're growing in who we are created to be there will always be those struggles or obstacles that challenge us to keep going in the vision God has put in our hearts. Sometimes we even make decisions that take us on new paths, but God is still able to complete all that He has begun in us. He really is that big. :)
As creatives/makers/artists we get critiqued from every angle, as we share our very visual gifts with the world. Dear artist, if ever anyone challenges you that you are not an artist, even though you partner with the Lord in what you create, don't listen too long to any negative words. The only words you need to hear, are His. Hold tight to them. He is your audience of One. And as you create with the Lord, in worship of Him, sharinh your gifts, you will SHINE brightly!! The Lord will be experienced through what you share. People's lives are changed as they encounter the Lord.
The Lord is doing a beautiful thing with creatives all over the world. He is drawing us closer to Him, and shifting our focus to be Him. As we shift that focus, our work reflects Him. God has given us a very special gift to visually share His love and the Kingdom of God throughout the earth. What an opportunity to partner with Him!!
Keep dreaming with the Lord, and stay encouraged, you are so needed!! Don't be discouraged by those that may not see what you do. Keep your eyes on the prize and your heart can remain in joy and full of peace.
You were created to create with the Lord!
"But Lord, your endless love stretches from one eternity to the other, unbroken and unrelenting toward those who fear you and those who bow facedown in awe before you. Your faithfulness to keep every gracious promise you’ve made passes from parents, to children, to grandchildren, and beyond. You are faithful to all those who follow your ways and keep your word."
Psalm 103:17-18 TPT
