The collage elements inside this artwork belong to me. I did not use someone else’s content to share on this canvas. I needed it to be this way. I needed every word and image to speak of my story. 


60 Years, Age 49

I have a new job and I have my hands full. What do we do when our lives become too busy for our story? My spiritual autobiography once had a voice, but today it’s on the back burner. I believe our spiritual memoir unfolds regardless of whether we dedicate time to sharing it. But, with just a small moment here and there, we can make sure we share our unfolding story and give it a voice.

We need to make space for our spiritual autobiography (our spiritual story) within our lives. Every day I want to make sure that I stop to think about how God was woven into my story. Don’t we want to remember how our day was different because of His presence in the big and little things? We can use our spiritual story to help us refocus our priorities so that God is part of it.

No matter how it may seem you are chosen? Our spiritual story can get lost in the challenges and difficulties of life. We don't feel chosen anymore. We feel lost and forgotten. Writing in a journal, keeping a personal journal or prayer journal can help us find our way back to the place where life makes sense and we have a sense of purpose. Journal writing can remind us of who we are and why God has chosen us.

Tears for Dancing, Age 42 

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven. Until then, I'm going to paint, I'm going to write, and I'm going to share when I find hope in this life. That's why I'm here at Journey on Canvas.
