It's harder than I thought it would be to be a young creative. When all you see online are the successes of others, it's really hard for me to not be tough on myself.
I forget that I'm still young in the eyes of others, and that what I'm doing isn't the norm. I can't expect myself to have gained x many followers or have sold x many cards when in reality, I'm not even able to dedicate myself to BPCo. full time yet. I know I want to prioritize school and family, but at the same time, this is my passion that drives my soul. I have all these worries that keep me awake at night - but there is hope. For me, for you, for my fellow young creative. Let me share this with you.
God tells us : You are enough. In his eyes, you are enough. Everything that you think are your failures are still successes in His eyes. Like a proud parent, he will hang our messy mistakes on his fridge, gleaming at what we've created with the talents he's given us.
He tells us a story of hope through His son Jesus Christ. In Him is the greatest hope we could have. We need only to look to Him when we are struggling, and He will give us peace.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." // John 3:16
This blog post was a little bit of my mind. It's a little scrambled, and jumps from here to there, but I hope you got the main message : God gives us eternal hope.
always with love,
