It has been pouring since yesterday afternoon. I am sitting on my screened porch, comfy, safe, from the storm outside. And safe from the storm inside. I am in a sweet spot right now. Life is not perfect, I am far far far from perfect, but I am content, resting in what God is doing in my heart. He is showing me I am not where I once was, and I am not where I will be when His work in me is complete.
Here is what He has been saying to me through the process of the paintings I spoke of in the previous post. I read it again and these phrases jumped out at me.
changed over time - He has and is changing me
finished appearance - I am not what I will be
self-taught - does not work - I need His guidance
lack of skill and knowledge - it's His skill and knowledge
be yourself - without all my many masks
layers, both pretty and ugly - there is much more work to be done - that's okay
make me who I am - He is molding me into the person I was created to be be
no longer fit - I cannot go back - I do not fit who I once was
It is so nice to rest in HIS hands!!
May you all have a blessed day,
