Have you failed at a dream that leaves you feeling inadequate and broken? What if you could accept that failure and forgive yourself? Wouldn’t you like to dream again? Dream something new? Wouldn’t you be relieved to know that you aren’t summed-up by your failures, by your inadequacies, and by your wasted yesterdays?
God has a strange way of showing up in the wounds and light always finds its way through the dark.
It’s the unanswered requests of a heavy heart that often confound and confuse us in the journey of faith. Why would a good, gracious, loving God remain silent in our despair?
We have all experienced failure, heartache, and loss that often leaves us with nothing but a desire to quit, to escape, and to find an easier path. In those moments we have the choice: do we continue to move forward in hope, or do we choose to give up?
There are days when hope arrives in a gentle whisper, while despair screams from the rooftops; but these momentary feelings do not have to define who we become.
Art, in its various forms, has the power to inspire hope, to challenge popular thinking, and to thrill the human mind through unique and creative expression. Yet, when art is “generic” or copied, we often describe it as lacking in substance, authenticity, and beauty.
