Art Journaling,  Sketching


While I am far from perfect, I do have the desire to be the best me I can be. I was shaped for a specific purpose, just as you where. This is exactly why we shouldn’t compare. Realizing that in order to Become the best me I can, I need to focus on truth. Not half of the truth, (that usually gets us in trouble) but the whole truth.

In order to Become a purpose filled vessel that shares light and hope and encouragement through my story, I need to listen to the Voice of truth. Listening to the Voice of truth will set my course of direction. So often we don’t test our thoughts and we can have a conversation of defeat, discouragement and doubt with ourselves. There are times we talk ourselves out of things and we don’t allow ourselves to Become all we can be. We miss out on what is best for us.

It’s not always easy. Often the journey includes struggle but this too is part of the Becoming. The struggles, the good, the big, the little, our decisions, what happens to us, will shape us. It will even shape how we minister to others; hopefully with a greater understanding and empathy when we go through the valleys of life.

I do want to encourage you that whatever stage of life you’re in, be patient with yourself on this journey. You are Becoming, not you have become. It’s a journey and a process, not an act that is completed in this lifetime. I will stumble, I will fall, but I plan on getting back up, reminding myself of the truth and continuing my walk of Becoming. Will you join me?

I created this art journal page as a reminder.
