Purpose Should Start & End In Connection
It’s an interesting thing that when we decide to listen to our purpose track and the guardian angel gut feelings in our chests, we can find ourselves connecting to more than “something to do for the rest of our lives”. My testimony to truth as a fine artist lies in the connections between my faith, my work, my audience, and myself. Each connects itself to another, though if one is misplaced in the line of things I cannot healthily continue, hiccups occur and I feel a bit miserable. When each is lined up in it’s perfect timing I have this insight that lights up the colours of a window pane of intentionally stained glass laid into my life before I was born.
We are all searching for our paths, mine has always needed to line up in the work of helping people. Strange to become a fine artist in the end, no? Yet as I listened to God and His words and the places he lined up in my life I chose not to just see it as a mere coincidence. This doesn’t refute hard work or diligence to keep hearing the right things. I found the key in the end to listen to the process of spending time with my God in my work and outside of my work, offering that work up to an audience and waiting for them to pour back into me so that I can continue this path.
I rely on my connections, my only parting advice is that you should too.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
