I will cheer you on.
Some of what you make will make you annoyed.
It will be inadequate.
It will not be what you want.
It will make you question if you have any business going after your dreams.
Recipes will flop.
Paintings will look like crap… I mean absolute crap…ask me how I know.
You may have to sand the guitar body so many times you wonder if there will be any wood left.
You will sit at a desk and stare at lined paper and end with just doodles…
blank screens will stare back where your book is supposed to appear
people will poison the well and stomp off from your friendly little communities
You will have to re write a song so many times… sigh.
depending on what you are going after… somethings will die… again, ask me how I know.
All those things are easier.. .. than the people.
There will be people who will tell you that you are wasting your time… or who do you think you are … what do you know about that…. that is so stupid … what a waste of time … can you make a living at that?
and then… there is your self…. and you know you are your worst critic…. I don’t need to repeat the lies that you tell yourself… you actually recite them in your sleep.
I will cheer you on.
I want to tell you right now that what you are doing is one of the most important things I have ever seen.
The way you are going at your dream inspires me.
The way you are stumbling and falling and getting back up brings tears to my jaded cynical eyes.
The way you answer the call of a Creator in your life… gives me hope in what I am trying.
So I will cheer you on.
I want you to get there.
I want you to have those unique moments with a Creator… because those are yours… but I want to hear about them.
I want to laugh with you.
I want to cry with you.
I want to cheer you on.
Because if we all just stand up and flip the finger to the voices that scream and steal from us... if we all do this together ….
we will bring heaven into eye shot of others.
we will constantly be pursuing moments with a King… we will be seeking His wisdom and His understanding to make these creations great!
and they will be great.
we just need to weed through the not so great… practice pieces… finding out what we like and what we don’t.
But even in the practice … He is there.. He is here. He has been waiting for you to find the courage to walk out the dreams He put in your heart… a compass pointing right to Him.
where you are going.. where we are going is so great ,the moments with a Creator so humongous and life changing that no amount of fear should intimidate you.
