Color and Theme Project: Week 2 – Color: White – Theme: Failure
I claim this scripture to overcome failure:
“As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for He knows how we are formed, He remembers that we are dust.” Psalms 103:13-14
For this week the color is white and the theme is failure suggested by Florence Kuek. Thank you for your great support!!!
I went out for a walk earlier and I was thinking about the theme… Who doesn’t experience failure at a point in their lives? I personally think I had more failures that success… I hope we can all learn how to slay this giant this week!
“There are few certainties in life. But one thing is for sure: we will all fail at something at some point in our lives. God understands our humanness. To learn from our failures we must contemplate them from the inside out and view it with God’s eyes. There’s nothing we’ve done that God cannot forgive if we will repent.” – David Jeremiah
I’ve been hesitating to post this, but now I think is time… Since I found the blog community so helpful and encouraging, I’m posting this today.
I’ve been painting since I was about 6 years old. It was sort of therapy for a nervous child… for the teenager, it became my hidden voice… now it is my passion…
I know that I could go far with my art but at the same time I want to hold on to it… I struggle a lot with self-esteem and with the word “artist”… It is a work in progress… At the same time I want to be recognized as an artist, I want to keep it within my 4 walls…
Couple weeks ago I wrote a bucket list of 31 things I want to do before I turn 31. And one of the things I wrote was: See the sunrise at the beach (it happened last Sunday, May 6th). On more thing that I wrote was: Be recognized as an artist.
It made me think… I’m already recognized by others… I need to recognized myself as an artist… again, work in progress…
I post some of my paintings (the most recently ones) at FineArt America. If you appreciate my work, or if think you know someone that might like my work, I would really appreciate if you help me spread it out and conquer my doubts…
When I started blogging it was a project between God and I… It never crossed my mind that I would virtually meet so many great people that encourage me everyday to capture His creation…
Special thank you to Florence Kuek for nominating me for this award!
In accepting this award, I’ll share a little of what God has done along with a list of bloggers that I am nominating for the Reader Appreciation Award.
He has just being so faithful, I don’t deserve… He has just being so merciful, I am in awe… When I was in the darkness days not long ago, He was there with me. When I started to see again, it was Him what I saw. He held my hand and brought me out… Some days, I fight to get inside again… He helps me… But it is still a struggle… But we are walking through it together… I never felt Him so close by… Words will never be enough to say, pictures will never be enough to show my love and appreciation for what He has done and what He will do… And as long is Him and I, I’ll be fine.
