Love from a Fellow Creative

Every piece of creative work I put out into the world leaves me vulnerable and tender. I know it is the necessity of my soul to get it out yet it’s reception into the world is wrought with fear.  Years ago I printed Isaiah 43:1 and now carry it with me like a banner of God’s design. “I have called you by name, you are mine.” It forces me to remember that my words, my life, my creative journey while leaving me tender, is actually tenderizing.  I know that I am blanketed in the love of a God who truly knows me. I am made for this – I am known for this.

 -Kristen Lehman, writer. Five for Flying.

Servants, do what you’re told by your earthly masters. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work. Colossians 3:23-25 MSG

What helps you know your work is enough?
