He Will Carry Me

After a year (tomorrow is my anniversary) of working for Messiah, I put in my two weeks today. Many people would ask what would possess me to do such a thing, given the current economy, but all I can say is that this is the biggest leap of faith I have taken in my lifetime. I will either be taking Graduate classes at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), or exploring Los Angeles, California for opportunities in Illustration, Concept Design, Graphic Design, or Fashion Design. I know the gifts that God has given me, and I know the happiness and fulfillment I find in doing these things; I also know how rare it is in life to find (and do) the things that we truly love. I refuse to settle for something because it is safe or because I will be financially secure. I want to take this time in my life, when I have never been freer and will never be as free again and experience the world and all its different possibilities. I want to stretch myself, I want to challenge myself, and I want to succeed in making the world a place of beauty and inspiration for others to enjoy.

"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'" - Matthew 6:27-31

For Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
