Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Art journaling can be a great process of “being still.” I like to put on worship music and “steep” in the scripture…listening for the Holy Spirit as He quiets the “noise” in my head…teaching me things I do not know…as I draw and color.  I hope that my little doodles are an aid in that process for you…giving you a “starting point”…as you create your own very personal rememberance of the place where God met with you.

Blessings,

  • Dear Sue,I have been following your postings for a while and reallyenjoy them and I am challenged by them. But I need to talk to someone about something that is troubling me.   So often I read different Christian’s testimonies about thegreat things that God is doing in their lives and while I can site similarthings in my life and am grateful for the things He has done for my husband andI, I don’t feel like I have the same joy as some that I read about. 

    I have shared this issue with pastors and others in thefaith and am usually told that since I am concerned about it that in itselfshows that I have a love for God and that I am His. While I understand thatthat may be true and I know that I shouldn’t go on feelings, I really desire aconnection to God that I see in other’s lives.  I see that in your postings also.

    That connection seems so effortless for you.  My logical mind says it probably isn’t but Ido struggle with comparing my walk to others. 

    I struggle with getting into God’s word daily and prayer andthat makes me wonder if my faith is real. Shouldn’t it be something that I thirst after?  Do I let the struggles of daily living takeaway that time and connection? 

    I guess I identify with you more that most because of yourcreativity.  I was an art teacher in a ChristianSchool for 9 years in NJ and have since moved to Florida where I gotmarried.  I love being creative butstruggle with making the time for that too.  Your posts always seem so authentic to me… real.  They really resonate with me and I want tohave that connection.  Well that is it…. Just want to touch base with you.  Thanks for listening,Lauren
