I have been thinking about new year's resolutions and came to the conclusion that I don't really have any. I have goals but they are nothing new. I guess I hesitate to make new year's resolutions because I want to stay open to what God has in mind for me this year. I hesitate to say, "I will do this thing by such and such a date" because maybe that is not what I am supposed to do. Too often I have done what I am not supposed to do and maybe this year can be different.
As I mentioned, I do have goals and I know I need to be intentional about my actions or no progress will ever happen. The thing is I need those actions to come from daily openness to what God wants me to do. Only when I am intentional about doing what He intends for me to do can I find any achievement. I guess my new year's resolution is and always will be taking the next little baby step He shows me.
Do not get me wrong, I am broken. I do the wrong thing and I do worry as well. I will keep on creating even if all I can do is draw with a stick in the sand. I love to make and if I can live off of that someday I would be pleased as punch but I will create even if I cannot make a dime off of it. My point is I don't want to worry about how I will make the dimes. I just want to make the art.
