"Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding."
Proverbs 3:5 AMPC

Are we not so trained to depend on our own understanding? What we know, what we’ve learned, what we’ve experienced. Often, that is of so much value for us in our daily decisions.
There’s nothing wrong with decision making based on our understanding. However, our own understanding is very limited. And sometimes, we might find ourselves in situations where minding our own understanding doesn’t help us.
In fact, depending on our own understanding may even impose stress on us. We might struggle with questions like: What if this bad thing will happen again? What if it doesn’t turn out my way? What if...?
But: God is so much more that what we know. And He is good. He wants the best for us.
Let us lean on Him - He’s gentle, welcoming, and soft. Let us trust in Him - He’s trustworthy. And let us be confident in Him - because He doesn’t change.

My name is Franziska. I live in the beautiful city of Munich and have been loving creativity ever since. I studied law and worked as a lawyer. However, creativity has always played a big role in my life. I believe that each and everyone of us has his own voice and way to communicate to others in a creative way. Our creativity is an act of worship. We are created to create. It is on my heart to encourage and spread life through my art work and I hope you feel inspired.
