What It’s All About…

I love art, always have, and few activities in my life bring me more joy than making art.
But that’s not what it’s all about.
I love traveling all over the country, painting my pictures and telling my stories.
But that’s not what it’s all about.
I love pastoring my church and creating new ways to preach and help people get it,
and that’s closer, but that’s not what it’s all about.
I get paid to paint pictures and tell stories and I have made friends all over the world, and that is amazingly cool, but that’s not what it’s all about either.

So what is it all about?

It’s all about Jesus.

It’s about helping people come to know Him.
It’s about following His leading.
It’s about answering His call.
It’s about learning all that He has for me, the easy stuff and the hard stuff.
It’s about telling the story of what He has done for me.
It’s about speaking His truth to whoever will listen.
It’s about trying to honor Him for all that He has done for me.
It’s about knowing the price He paid
and it’s about knowing I am completely unworthy and completely and perfectly love.

It’s all about Jesus, and if I keep Him as my focus, honor Him as Lord, worship Him as Savior, everything else will work out.

Jesus is life. Life is Jesus.
