“I am an artist.”
Mackenzie said this with no hesitation.
No questioning what anyone else thinks. No worries. No doubts. No obstacles. No fear.
With courage and faith… she knows.
Oh how I admired her enthusiasm and confidence.
I remembered how long it took me to say that I was an artist. And I wondered why. Why was I afraid to claim what God had put in my heart? His gift to me. Who am I to question that?
To know our gifts and to accept them willingly. To accept them with pure joy. To use our gifts. God wants us all to live that way.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 1 Corinthians 12:4
A sweet little girl showing what it means to follow your heart. Mackenzie’s passion is inspiring. How many of us know in our hearts what we are… but we are afraid to say it out loud?
I am not afraid to call myself an artist anymore. I see it as a gift. I am embracing the gift put in my heart and I am grateful for it.
Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17
What has HE placed in your heart… your gift? Embrace it. Claim it!
