Jesus is my friend pt.2

Look, I would never describe myself as a creative person. The thing is, God’s plans for our lives are always bigger and better than we can ever imagine. So when He sent me in the direction where I am headed now, I just followed behind him with big eyes and a little bit of doubt. It’s not that I did not trust Him, but I’m only human the little bits of doubt seem to come into my thoughts uninvited sometimes.

With many questions, uncertainties and doubts in my own skills, I step into the doors of the institution where I have will be studying Interior Design for 3 years – A suuuuuper creative direction. I had my doubts until one day I realized that I would probably never have chosen this myself and that a Higher power would have to have had a hand in the decision-making process.

One day I’m sitting with a huge project in front of me with no inspiration whatsoever. I don’t know what to do and I don’t know what to draw. Then I just closed my eyes with my hands in my hair asking the Lord to help me. He is the one who sent me in this direction, He must help me now. Lord, what now? I can’t do this in my own ability. You need to help me. I just can’t! Please show me the way and just give me a little of Your creativity. Please help me. This was my desperate prayer-plea in class. As I opened my eyes, I started drawing and I then I just knew it was inspiration from Above.

What I learned this year about God’s character, His father’s heart, His omnipresence and unconditional love, has only made me realize that I am not able to do anything without God at my side. Without Him I am nothing. If I can’t call him my friend, I can forget about doing anything in my own strength.

Acts 17:27-28 “God wanted them to look for him and perhaps search all around for him and find him, though he is not far from any of us: ‘By his power we live and move and exist.’ Some of your own poets have said: ‘For we are his children.’” This verse has touched me this year. I once again realized that we are living through Christ and we are His children for whom He loves way.

Being friends with God, you are always sure of a win.

Lord God, thank You very much for knowing that you know the best for me, although I do not always see it now, go ahead and prepare the way for us. Thank You that I could realise Your desire to have quality time with each of Your children. I know that I sometimes fall and not make it, but I also know that You are always there to pick me up. I know that being on Jesus’ team is the best team on which I could ever be. Lord, I really love You with everything in me. Help me to look for You every day and to live out Your will for my life. … Amen.
