Hello, my friend.
Same scripture as last week,, just a different translation. I guess I am still wrestling with the same issue: my need to control. My life is usually spilled across these pages as I am learning to lean on Jesus. Darn: Wish my walk with God was a little easier.
These are lots of things I like to do, writing being one of them. But over the years I have, on occasion, tried my hand at drawing and painting. I can copy other’s art. As part of my first job as a teenager, I painted Christmas scenes from old cards on storefront windows. That led to little satisfaction. I wanted to create my own drawings which usually looked pretty awful. Why, because God didn’t create me to be an artist and when I try, I feel frustrated and exhausted. I have taken the wheel away from God and I am lacking gratitude for the gifts I was endowed with. I want to feel contentment in my life which means letting God lead me in all areas. How about you? Are you making the most of your God-given talents? Linda
