A new season
I really can’t believe I’m nearly 30. Just a few short weeks away. It’s quite amazing. It’s been a long hard string of seasons. One right after another. But the Lord has been more than faithful. Day after day, season through season, He is faithful.
A huge surprise came about this week. I have had multiple art presentations over the last 5 years, including being displayed in a gallery in Alabama and being sold in a local store here in Franklin. However for the last nearly two years I have not pursued any shows as I once did.
Earlier this week a manager at my local Starbucks approached me and mentioned she had seen my art, and asked if I would be interested in displaying there. She had no clue being displayed in Starbucks was a hidden dream. I had laid down the desire to pursue shows a year or more ago. She also had no clue I would be turning 30 soon either.
This was set up completely from the Lord.. And I believe fully as birthday present. 30, is a special year for me. He knows that because He told me that it would be. And now, he has taken a secret dream of mine and has placed it on display. He is so good.
I have also noticed a shift in my vocabulary. Art “show” is a very common phrase. However now, something about the word show deeply bothers me. And I have felt the Lord change my view from being one of showing, to one of presenting. Knowing I carry a message the Lord has given me of hope, resolve, and security; I desire deeply for others to know the hope I know and have experienced in Jesus.
So, tomorrow morning the last presentation of my 20′s, and the first presentation of my 30′s begins. I pray the message of hope, resolve, and security is communicated.
