Hello Everyone and Happy New Year! I came across this post on Linked In that quoted Psalms 139:14,15: I praise thee for the awful wonder of my birth; thy work is wonderful. For thou didst form my being, didst weave me in my mother's womb. (James Moffatt Translation)

I thought for the new year what an image to hold onto!! God didn't make us with any intentions of being a failure, or a work that is low and unworthy, even though those thoughts creep into our minds so often, they are lies and the furthest truth from reality. We are awesome wonders and as an artist God weaved us! What a beautiful image to hold on to. As an artist I can weave awesome and beautiful images for the world to see! Just as the Master Artist weaved a work that is perfect and spellbinding, we were called not to be failures but to bring forth mesmerizing and powerful works of art. Now that is a goal for the new year for us all to reach out to in every work that we do! My goals for this year (written on my calendar to see everyday) are 1) Get into a NYC gallery 2) Produce more work each month 3) connect with more artists 4) blog and use social media more. Making it a point to put something on everyday whether in facebook, Linked-In, pinterest or twitter. Responding to art blogs. 5) Get into 2 group exhibitions. Would love to hear what some of your goals are this year, so we can pray for each other as a group. What does God Expect me to do this year?  To take my gifts and talents and put them out there for the world to see, so others can see the invisible God and His love in my work.  As someone once put it on TV - To boldly go where no man has gone before!  Love to all, Len

Thank you for the kind words of encouragement Julian.  I think one of my goals this year is to be more faithful with looking at the CIVA website and reading all the wonderful blogs and posts that people are sending out.  Have a great vision for yourself this year Julian.  Deliverance in every area of your life, mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially and in your art!  As fellow labourers with God, we need to see ourselves "As He Is"  That is the reality no matter what the world throws at us or we say to ourselves.  Anything less than that is a lie.   A great year of believing and faith to all of us!  Love always, Len

God bless you Len, you have been a great encouragement to me with your kindness and willingness to step up and be a blessing.  The Lord bless your dreams and His dream for your life, may all that you put your hand to do come to be in ways that dwarf what you can see within you.  May your light continue to shine ever brighter as you walk and bless others with your heart and with your gifts! 

As for my goal this year, to overcome all of the trials, obstacles and discouragements that I have waded through the last so many years and to surge in faith, authority and victory in the name of Jesus!

With love in Christ, your Brother Julian.
