Some of the things I feel very led to share on this blogging “assignment” are very personal and, just to be honest, it is way, way out of my comfort zone! I have actually written some posts and am kinda holding onto them ‘till I get braver. The great thing about acting is you can hide inside of someone else (a role you might be playing), the better you hide, the better the work. Writing, especially this kind, is demanding in a different way. It’s more about exposure. I don’t like that. A dear actress friend emailed me the other day and was feeling very discouraged. I immediately realized this was for her. In sharing it with her I realized it might be for you too, and for someone you know. So hear what the heart of our Creator is saying:
I See You.
I sense discouragement in the ranks of my artists and creatives. A prevailing wind of, “will I ever get there?”, or “my dream seems lost.” As you face into the wind of resistance, you feel it’s force pushing you. It feels like if you were to take one step back, to get your balance, it might be the right thing to do. But the Master Artist, originator of all creation and of your creativity, the One who put that gift and dream in you, says, “I see you. You are chosen as an example and even a creative voice in My new generation of artists and creators. Do not worry about ‘fitting in’. I have not designed you to fit in, but to stand up and be set apart. Push into the wind. Take a step forward and not back. I’m there waiting. Take My hand. I am your ever-present help.”
