Hey!! Hey!! It is another ((New)) Day. Many years ago I had started writing in journals “Composition Books” This was before blogging. I started writing, after listening to a talk show. Where the host would share how one feels by writing them into journals as a healing tools. I said to myself that sounds like a great ideal. So I started doing that. I started writing how I felt, I started writing all my pains, hurts, and struggles as a child, a teen, and as a young woman. If anyone can see: I write the way I talk, lol, lol, I love it. Because I’m being who I am as a person. It use to bother me. I tell people be who you are, because God knows who you are. He knows everything about us. We cant hide nothing from Him, even if we tried. Even if you believe In Him are not. Let me share this I love art, I enjoy drawing, coloring, painting. When I was in college years ago, back then it was called a ‘Tech’ school. I had went to be a Commercial artist. Everyday I would set in this class under an instructor who I found later. Did not think woman could be a Commercial artist.
He would always give me lower grades on ever piece of art work that I would bring forth. Yes!! it was very discouraging. He didn’t know my self-esteem was already low. I didn’t need him to lower it more. I stopped going to class, it was very hurtful, it was painful. There is more to this, but I want you too know ‘Art’ is not one-sided, In my years I have seen so many different arts. Some strange arts, but beautiful. I choose today to keep drawing, coloring, and painting, and blogging. I thank God for it all. I love those who criticize what I have been given. In this world we will have critics. I have learned don’t do what others do. Do what God has called you to do. I still have my journals, as I go through them I see how I have come a long way in this life. I can not, and will never leave God out. Because He has been with me, through my own up’s, and down’s. That means He has seen, and heard everything. My Heavenly Father has never forsaken me. I love this scripture: Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. I’m today doing what God has me to do today. I have lived on both sides of the coin. I don’t regret the paths I have traveled, anymore. Because I would not know who I am today. (Read Proverbs 3:5-6) The instructor didn’t take what God-given me. Stop pleasing people, it’s time to please God. God tells me to keep forgiving, and loving those who has hurt me, are trying too. So I can keep growing Spiritually. Today I’m in a ((New)) Chapter in my life. Don’t compromise with anyone. Right is right, Wrong is wrong. Keep moving forward in His Name. Keep Believing, Trusting, and Obeying Him. Well I hope you may be blessed, and encourage. Talk to God anywhere at anytime.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?
