|my poor boy|
For we do not wrestle
against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers,
against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world
and against the spiritual forces
of evil in the heavenly realms.
I know it might sound far fetched to some but I really do wonder. Not that I think we would change our choices because we know what we're doing is the right thing. The things we go through, the lumps we take, in our pursuit make us stronger, teach us lessons and and become our testimony. But still it all makes me ask the question "What is the asking price?" Then I think how very unworthy I am to ask such a question when Christ gave the ultimate sacrifice for us on the cross. Who am I to question how much I sacrifice when it could never come close to His sacrifice? it all brings keeps bringing me back to obedience. To keep throwing stones and keep walking the walk.
A few weeks ago, in late Sept/Early Oct, I sent a couple of emails to some highly trafficked blogs to submit my mixed media work to be featured. One email came back with wonderful feedback but my request was denied. The other email, however, came back with a YES! So, this Saturday my mixed media work will be featured on the Mod Podge Rocks website/blog! I'm really excited about it. Normally, I don't submit my mixed media work for features or anything really. I am still so much searching and experimenting that I don't really feel like it's good enough to submit. But in an effort to overcome those fears I decided to take a faith step and throw a stone in that direction. I'll share a link when the post goes up!
