A blank canvas, just sitting there looking at me.

Fear almost swallows me when I start a piece; horrible lies of defeat rush through my mind.

Sometimes I run to others to find what I should do and nothing ever seems to be the right thing. I know that the creativity has to come from within me. From the father’s heart to mine; Obedience. That’s the only way it will come out beautifully.

From His heart to mine…

From His heart to mine…

I sat, and waited until I felt him come.

“Why me, father?” 

 I got a picture of myself last year worshiping on the piano, singing Him a song from my heart to His and He plainly said “Cynthia I remember these moments with you, the ones where your heart is crying out for more of me, the moments when you’re bare, hopeless and naming yourself unworthy and you reach up because you remember that my arm is always outstretched toward you. Breathing truth over you.  These moments of pure worship through creativity in every way, this is what I crave”

Then started slapping paint on that blank canvas with my favorite spackle and call me crazy but I felt it leave my body and hit that canvas. Then the next step comes and the cycle starts over I get stuck, don’t know where to go, what color should I use next… I forget who I’m painting for; Always leading me back to trusting in Him.

I choose to make my art a spiritual journey because I feel like it helps me grow in ways that I wouldn’t if I didn’t have art as a creative outlet. But I needed to get this out. I needed to tell you today that HE WANTS YOU TO FIND HIM.

Be inspired by my weird journey to finding Him and run; fiercely, boldly after what you’re afraid of and conquer it with Him. Its what He craves from you. That’s what “He is jealous for you” means. He just wants that time with you where you’re fighting, feeling alone, lost anxious and He can come through, be your daddy and fight with you.

 

TRUST HIM IN EVERYTHING.

CONQUER THAT FEAR.

YOU ARE ABLE.
