I’m not completely sure where my journey is taking me sometimes. I used to really see the path laid out before me. Everything made sense to me: like God was clearly lighting my way. Now days, I feel a bit lost sometimes. I’m not always even sure God is crazy about the path that I’m on. I’m not doing something bad or wrong that He would greatly disapprove of. I’m just not reaching the heights I once felt driven to reach. I’m not really saving the world with what I do. The urge to create drives me forward, but I sometimes question whether it has value. Perhaps, God would be more pleased if I was choosing to volunteer my time instead of painting a picture? The problem is that I love creating just way too much. Even as a small child, I made art passionately. I think I was made to create? Why would God give me all this enthusiasm for creative things for no reason? Perhaps, I am on the right path on my journey? Recently, I went on a couple of exciting art adventures. I got to share my work with other artists, and they got to share their work with me. Many of the people were deeply spiritual and their work was as well. They were comfortable with the creative journey they were on, and they loved the adventure of the moment. They knew they were made to be an artist. These recent adventures have illuminated my path because of the joy I experienced and the joyful people I journeyed with. Within the world of creative people exploring creative expression lies meaning, value and power. Our art breathes life and joy into ourselves and others. This blog is all about the journey of creatives and the power of the creative expression. The further down the path I go, the more I am convinced that God planned this. He made us this way. We are doing exactly what He set out to do when He breathed His first breath into us: creating.

Tears for Dancing, Age 42

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven. Until then, I'm going to paint, I'm going to write, and I'm going to share when I find hope in this life. That's why I'm here at Journey on Canvas.
