have you ever wondered what is a legitimate prayer? sometimes i'll be praying about something silly, like..dear jesus..can you please make athletic? then i'll feel a little guilty and throw in something more spitiually pleasing..like..dear jesus..please make me athletic, so that i may run the race for you kingdom..yeah..that sounds better
but seriously, i want to be good at something..like really talented. i am talented at making friends, and keeping them, i'm talented at conversation, and socially acceptable situations. i'm not bragging, just facts. but i want to be talented and creative with art, and design, and etc. can i ask jesus to make me more creative? or maybe he has always had me pegged for creativity and i just never tapped into it? either way, i have dubbed myself a designer, whatever it looks like for me... and i am excited to see how the lord wants me to expand my creativity...and maybe that is where faith comes in.
jesus asks us to follow him..and sometimes we don't know how it is possible, or how it is supposed to look like..but we do it..and we fail, and we pick up our cross again, and follow. i guess that is what it is about, continuing the race, athleticism or not :)
yeah..that's it..i will fail, but i will pick up my needle and thread, or can of spray paint..and i will try.
here goes my blank canvas...i'll let you know how it goes!
