take a step – I dare ya

Most of us realize prep needs to be done before you run a marathon. Attempting without it would be self-defeat.

The same with art and more. Teachers want you to sketch, learn values, understand color and MAYBE you can create later. Steps can be very helpful but God seldom works in our worldly norms.

So work up a little courage. Take a step. Pick a color. See what happens…

We call Abraham “father” not because he got God’s attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody. Isn’t that what we’ve always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, “I set you up as father of many peoples”? Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing. When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do. And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples. God himself said to him, “You’re going to have a big family, Abraham!” Romans 4:17-18

One thought on “take a step – I dare ya

  1. Hi Judi
    Picking out the colors in our life is a scary step – we want to see everything in black and white – a answer for everything
    But God – He is waiting for us to give up our black and white thoughts and fly to Him in the color-filled world of Grace
    Picking up the brushes of faith along with you
    God Bless
