My artistic/writer self-confidence plummeted last week. If I had to rate my level of self-confidence on a scale of 1 to 10, it would have been a minus 10.
For two days, I threw a pity party. Strange thing was, no one came to my party. The longer I party, the worse I’ll feel.
So after consulting my trusty manual, I asked God to toss down His golden cord of hope (I sure wasn’t getting anywhere in my own strength).
He didn’t let me down. As I clung to the golden cord of hope, the black cloud slowly lifted.
Inspiration blossomed like a budding flower in spring, arriving just in time to design this piece for Creative Tuesdays.
“Strength! Courage! Don’t be afraid, don’t get discouraged.
God, your God, is with you every step of the way.” Joshua 1:9b (The Message)
The next time I’m tempted to throw a pity party, I’ll look up instead.
P.S. How do you handle discouraging news?
