I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
This little rant described the way I look at religion perfectly.
ESPECIALLY what she said in the last two photos
this just shows what a lack of understanding the writers have of Christianity. we don’t believe people die young so they can become angels. we don’t know why people die young. we don’t believe they turn in to angels. we don’t know why sometimes people get cancer. and we sure as sure aren’t Christians simply because it makes life easier. in fact, life as a Christian is harder. because not only do we fight our own desires on a daily basis, 90% of the world looks down on us like we’re lunatics, mock us, and even murder us. but we endure through it, because God loves us and gave himself for us to save us from our sin. and when the God of the entire universe loves you so much that he’d rather die on a cross in your place than watch you waltz in to hell, what else can you do except give your life to him?
Jesus is my King.
Today The Lord showed me that I have been spending too much time focusing on my circumstances and not enough time focusing my eyes on him. A wise friend of mine said to me that he always says, “Jesus is king” whenever he’s having a hard time. It helps him to remember that God is in control and that God is a loving God. Jesus is my king, but he is a loving king who loves to share his wealth with me! We are all invited in to his house and everything he has is ours. How can we be so taken off track by the things we see around us? God is bigger than that and he wants to give us life and to the full!
My Lord, My King.
Sarah or Kayla? The youngest one just got done having a fun trip up here with me ^^ we went to church and her shoulder got healed! The other one is doing better. I think we found a medication that works better for her. :) she’s doing summer school.
I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the past month now. I think it’s because I’ve been dealing with a lot of self-hatred over my own sinfulness and mistakes. I know I am imperfect and always will be…But It just seems like I have to be perfect in order for others to accept me, including God. Now I know this simply is NOT TRUE. The Lord ADORES US ALL and he understands our human side very well because he himself has endured it on this earth. I guess whenever I hear this song, I feel the raw emotions that come out of someone who feels so desperate…Who wants to escape from themselves.
Interpretations of this song can vary depending on what season of life you’re in…Right now for me, it spoke to me and told me that God is more than capable of taking away the junk in my life. He’s ripping apart the old from the new, and shining new light on me. I tried to capture what that emotion FELT like in this picture, so if it comes off as a little weird or dark, good. Because that’s how it feels sometimes.
The Lord is doing a work in me and he will complete it to the end. I will always be a fallen creature who sins and struggles, but I have the Lord with me who forgives and is there to pick me up whenever I fall down. ;v;
He takes away…He takes away..He takes away my past. He takes away my evil desires..He takes away anything unrighteous within me and replaces it with his love and truth.
Song is “Take it all away” by: RED.
Gosh, I love this song and this band to the death…♥
