“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
How will you paint your new beginning and what tools will you use?
Will they be useful – tools of quality, tried and true?
what new tools will they be …….
Will you paint in big strokes or small?
What colors will you use?
Your favorite color crayon ?
Or organizational clip…….
What purpose ?
What design ?
Will you color sadness in various shades blue?
Or paint in Fear?
Or will you hide and paint in the midst of shadows?
Or will you just paint over the walls….
perhaps, the walls and the windows too
Will you just paint all shuttered ?
and suffer all so alone….
finding safety in the strongholds…
and not even begin to paint anything….nothing at all ?
Will you just simply paint over your mask ?
Will you get hands dirty ……..
and throw painted stones ?
What about mistakes……… ….will you make them ?
and will there be missing colors…….?
How will you know?
How will you measure your new beginning…….just how will you begin to paint ?
Your new beginning……..…..with Heart ?
