There is such a beauty in truth, isn’t there?
Feeling the need to find my people, be purposeful, create beauty… it’s all percolating in my heart. And I long to do these things without being rejected. Without having my purpose be cast aside as unimportant. I deeply desire to see others appreciate the words I create. I do, indeed, long for these things.
And yet, I am afraid. I’m afraid to fail, to not matter, to produce words that do not reach into hearts.
But, I go ahead and do these things afraid.
I do them because if I don’t, what is true of me will not be seen.
And what is true of me?
I am a sinner, the worst among them.
I will fail, many times over.
What I create may well end up being of no consequence.
But what is also true of me?
My Audience of One tells me that what is true is that I am already accepted. I am already created with a purpose. I was, in fact, already a thing of beauty creatively made in the image of One I can only pray to be more like every day.
I’m reminded that all that matters is that I believe these things – that I believe Him!
And that is a beautiful truth.
And it sets me free.
