A love of color. A passion for design. A deep felt desire to create. Unexplained art supply marks on your skin and clothing?
What is it that defines an artist? Is it someone who can execute beautiful and thought provoking work? Is it someone who makes money from their creations? Is it the pursuit that defines an artist? A person that applies the desire of their heart. A person that seeks out opportunities to not only practice but develop their skills. Someone with a need to express themselves through alternate means.
Maybe you have a heart for art?
A person with a heart for art will consume it (museums, arts & craft stores, books, magazines, YouTube, shows, or whatever other sources they might find). A person with a heart for art will share their passions with others (sometimes even when the other person isn't expecting or wanting it). A person with a heart for art will express in an artistic manner (not limited to only the physical creation of art).
What is your heart for????
I have heard people talk about feeling "distant" from God. I've heard people share that they once had a relationship with the Lord, but they just weren't sure any longer if that was the case. There are many reasons for this. Sin often gets in the way of our relationship with the Lord. Apathy also seems to take our eyes off of God and places them on ourselves. Whatever the reason...there is a need for change. In Jeremiah, we see a "simple" truth. You will seek me and find me if you seek me with all of your heart. What does it mean to seek God with ALL OF YOUR HEART? ALL MEANS ALL! We can not seek out the Lord with a divided heart. His desire is that we give ourselves whole heartedly to pursuing him. So often we hold on to things for comfort, security, selfish ambition, and a host of other reasons. This keeps ups from seeking God with all that we are....because we are trying to make our own way.
