“How do you make it as an artist?” is a question I hear often. It’s a story I love to tell, and it’s a story that continues to unfold.
Six years ago I was sitting at a desk, discouraged because there was very little excitement in my life. Any previous high points in my life were becoming distant memories. That day, I opened my journal and wrote, “The kind of adventure I need is the ups and downs of self-employment…a life of faith.”
Three years ago I got what I asked for. I’ve had the highest highs, and the lowest lows in my life. Nothing hurts quite like being late on bills, and nothing is as sweet as having excess and time to do things that didn’t seem possible.
I declare “God is good”, not because everything in my life is smooth. That’s not what I needed or really wanted, is it. I say God is good, because He loves us, He supports us, He plants desires in us, He satisfies our every need, and He is never far from us!
Take a minute to read THIS speech the apostle Paul gave to the Athenians about God…it’s fascinating.
