Delighted by Design
When I was a young girl I truly enjoyed drawing. I could spend hours with pencils and pens creating on my sketch pad. By the eighth grade I thought I'd like to be a Graphic Designer. In High School my Mom and I would joke about me getting a job working for Hallmark one day.
I never became a Designer in that sense, but even at a young age the presence of God's direction on my life was evident. He was there guiding my interests. I think if I worked for a company like Hallmark today it would be with my pen, but for the content not the cover of the card. But as one who creates...we take delight in what we come up with. Sometimes it's a struggle and needs refinement, other times it flows effortlessly communicating the content of heart, but the final product is celebrated. Creation is Beautiful on any level.
Life has a way of happening. We chart our course and we dream, of course...troubles, roadblocks, obstacles, disappointments set in. Sometimes as we mature we change our focus or it become more refined. But through everything God has a Masterful Plan. He is holding your hand even when you can't see Him or feel His Touch. He loves you so much, He adores you.
Wherever you are at today, however your life looks, know this...
The Heart of God adores you. Can you not feel His Pleasure? Take some time today, CREATE IT, and DELIGHT in His Love.
All of Heaven is Delighted with you.
"For the Lord your God is living among you, He is a Mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs."
