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.
It is often very easy to get caught up in the moments of life, whether it’s a season of pain, a season of life change, or a season of success. We, as human beings, tend to get lost in the present reality, whatever that might be, often forgetting the larger story going on around us…
Often in life we find ourselves overwhelmed with all of life’s expectations, reaching for something to find hope and meaning within the constant busyness within which we find ourselves. Finances, family responsibilities, social status, religious obligations, and other commitments take more time than we originally intended and we’re left looking back on each season of our lives searching for meaning within the constant activity.
At the end of your life, what will people remember about you? Who will celebrate your impact? What contribution of eternal significance will be left from your brief moments in this life?
Can we be completely satisfied in this life?…Without realizing it, most of us are searching for ultimate satisfaction through the accumulation of our possessions, success in our careers, harmony in our relationships, margin in our finances, and even righteous religious devotion. We often believe that “one day” we’ll have what we need to be truly fulfilled, truly in harmony with the universe, and absolutely satisfied.
