~~Do you believe that God can speak to you through a chocolate bar wrapper?
~~I had the neatest experience last night. I believe that God speaks to us all the time. It's just that our minds and hearts are often too busy to hear what He's saying. Last night I had been painting for a while. I could feel myself getting tense. I tend to do my best work when I'm relaxed and just trust my instincts. But last night I kept over-analyzing and over-thinking everything that I was doing. I'm getting so attached to this piece that I've started worrying about messing it up. So I stopped, sat my paints down and walked into the kitchen for a break.
~~I reached into a bag of Dove chocolates and pulled out a piece. I opened the wrapper, my mind still turning. But when I looked down at the inside of the wrapper, this is what it said:
~~I'm serious! I stood there, a little stunned. Then I started laughing. I brought it in to show Dustin and ask him if he thought God spoke through chocolate wrappers. He told me that I need to pin it up right beside my canvas so that I can see it while I'm working.
~~I must be pretty hard of hearing if God needs to actually write His message down for me to hear it.
Okay Lord, I'm listening. And thank you for that sweet little bit of encouragement!
I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed.
