May 6th “Filled With Doubt”

“Dancers In Blue – Edgar Degas”

"Edgar Degas was born in Paris the son of a banker and art lover and friend to important collectors, he was set up in his first studio by eighteen. He studied at the School of Fine Arts after which he studied the masters of the Renaissance still keeping his passion and focus on painting.He lived a life of listening only to his own opinions. Filled with self doubt which affected him and his isolation for his entire life and losing his sight he turned to sculpture and his love of the opera.

So many are filled with doubt. So many have no hope. So many don’t know about the choices they have made and are making. Today we live in a world filled with me, myself and I. A throw away to our foundational beliefs and a mockery when we disapproved of our child’s actions and turn around and lead them by doing exactly what we’ve disapproved of. Throw away marriages, throw away relationships, throw away jobs and positions because discipline, order, behavior, decorum are no longer in vogue, only what our momentary feelings tell us to do.

Be careful for the God of the entire universe carefully watches over all and even His own will not mock him.

Our only hope is to live for Him in obedience to His commands, even when it doesn’t “feel good!"

“Where is the stand on foundational beliefs we once took
It's like we’ve been pulled from stage and don’t even see the hook
Why do you think you’ve got it right and the fairy tale is in view
When you’ve totally forgotten to look closely all around you
You may not see it today or maybe you’ll hear or see a crack
But you won’t reach the colors the world said when it’s truly black!”

“Every artist has fears and has doubts. We also must come to the point where our hope is in the Lord. Have a great week!”
