I can't believe that in this day and age there is such a straight forward site regarding being a Christian first, and also being an artist. When I started searching on the web, I didn't really think I would find anything meaningful, or useful. But there you were - right where God had put you. Right where I could find you.

My concern was the amount of time and money I was spending on my art. Guilt drove me to seek a way to combine my art and service to God. You have helped me a lot just knowing that this site is here. May God continue to anoint you with wisdom for the rest of us.


Thank you, Carel for your kind words. Guilt and creativity don't usually do well together! Trust Him and let your creative endeavors be a sweet offering of praise. You wont find a better use for your time or talent.

I struggle with this as well
by: Connie Roberts

"I am having a difficult time right now. I have been taking care of my parents for 1 1/2 years. I am an artist, I was getting unemployment, and now that is over. I had to go to work full time at a job I hate. My soul longs to continue care of my parents, longs to create, and garden. I have no time. I am miserable. I pray the Lord will show me a way to do what I love, make enough money, and shine His Light. Please pray for me."

I pray for the Lord to fill you with His peace. May you know that your times and seasons are in His hands. May you rest in the assurance that He wastes nothing; not even your heartache or the empty, desolate seasons of life. May you have the confidence to know that you can trust Him, IF you turn it all over to Him and refuse to fret about it.

Pro 3:5,6,7

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil."

Father may she be given the wisdom and a steadfast spirit so that she will not consider the circumstances from her own point of view. Instead, may she fix her eyes on You, the author and finisher of her faith.

May you grant her a shining hope in You, the God who created her and knows everything about her, including her circumstances - trusting that you have good things planned for her.

May the joy of the Lord, be her strength. May she be guided and directed in what she is to do next, even as she trusts in you, without succumbing to frustration, despair or doubting your goodness towards her.

In Jesus name,
