But no really, I have made a concrete decision to chase after my passion and my purpose. Anyone that has been following my posts for any period of time would know that it is my art...my creativity. I have put it out in the atmosphere now. I have made it known to the masses, and now there is no turning back. I am pressing toward the mark. I am going for the gold. I am leaping towards my passion and chasing it on purpose!
What exactly does that mean? Well, I will remain faithful to the call on my life of being an artist. I am working on my portfolio like no bodies business, and will be applying to several artist residencies come fall. I am also seeking out artist communities that are in the Philadelphia and Southern Jersey area, and look forward to joining a few. Last but not least, I am going to be selling my creations at a few locations in Philly this summer.
I subscribe to daily emails called The Prophecy Bulletin by Marsha Burns. The email that was sent day before yesterday spoke volumes to me. It said the following:
Be strong and stay steady as you move from one thing to the next. I [God] didn't promise that it would be easy, but I [God] did promise that I would be with you and not forsake you. There will be times when you need to be quiet; an emotional meltdown will not serve your best interest, says the Lord. Trust Me [God] for wisdom and direction. I [God] will indeed point the way and protect you on the way.This time I am going to remain strong and steady! I was not promised an easy road, but I was promised provision for the path that I am supposed to take. Thank You Lord for provision!
Hebrews 3:14 - "For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ."
I am no longer interested in just calling myself an artist. I am no longer interested in being afraid that I will not make it. I am no longer interested in just putting my big toe in the water.
I am ready to jump in...all in...submerged!
So with that being said, I am about to take a dip! Until next post...
