I thought about artist today. In a way, they are extremely romantic. They have this love affair with their creations that rival the closest bonds. The most interesting part of this process to me, is the inspiration. My first question is always, ‘what made you do this?’ Often times it’s inspired by themselves. Then, my interest grows through the roof! Everyone has a perception of themselves. Whether it be positive or negative, we all seem to see ourselves a certain way. When an artist gives us a glimpse into who they see in the mirror, the energy surrounding the art is deeply personal. In a painter’s point of view, the canvas should be honored to be chosen… right? I would! Then I got to thinking, it’s kinda like God. I wondered what inspired Him to create me and all my good and bad. Then I remembered The Bible saying We were inspired by God! So God, the artist, made me, and the inspiration was Him!
I know, I know it may not sound that amazing to you but in my own way of thinking, it made me feel better about myself. I mean, here I am almost 30, and all my friends back home are married and or on to baby #3, life in full swig. I’m single just starting to figure it out and for once in my life … I’m a little lonely! Ugh I sound so pathetic! NE ways… I kinda got the feeling of just being here (on earth) with no purpose. Then it dawned on me, if God was inspired by Himself to make me; it gotta be for a reason… right? Plus any part of Him is super times infinity anyways, so some of that must be in me somehow! And I know what you are thinking! God’s a busy Guy, not everyone has that.
But you are wrong!
I thought the same thing, cause I didn’t want to be left out on a blessing of anything.
For us to even be here on earth is a dead ringer that we’re are here for a reason! Think about it. God saw the need for you, me, your mom, whoever, and He sat down (does God sit?) and came up with each one of us individually to apparently fill a need!
I know, sometimes we get caught up in what someone else was blessed with, but what has comforted me is that I got what I have to complete a mission. Nothing more nothing less. And like all great action moves the hero has amnesia but still has to save the world! Like us! We probably won’t even know in this lifetime how greatly our little existence has effected mankind. Look at the Trayvon Martin! He probably never expected his death to be so strategic to our future.
That right there, makes me appreciate what I was given; flaws and all!
