I want to make art with my life. I want to intentionally look for wonder in my life. I want to live like a lyric and not like a list.
Emily P. Freeman‘s book A Million Little Ways, A: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live is such an encouragement and a life changer. She says you might not see yourself as an artist, but you are. You are made in the image of God afterall.
Emily’s book encourages me to love authentically. To live in the moment. To choose to be present. To show up. To offer myself fully just as I am.
“Christ wants to come out through you, through your unique personality,” Emily says. “Recognize you have something to offer.”
I’m going to choose to believe I can live artfully. How about you? “What if we decided to believe our purpose in this world really is to reflect the glory of God?” What would that look like in your life?
Here are some notes I took that I want to share with you:
  • God is an artist. The same God who made you and lives in you.
  • We are a masterpiece made to do good things. (Eph. 2:10)
  • We are created in Christ, on purpose, with a purpose.
  • Do you know you are an image bearer with a job to do?
  • Respond to God where you are as you are.
  • Choose to be present.
  • It’s not about being the best there is at something it’s about being the best YOU.
  • Beauty is in being authentically who you are.
  • Serve and love
  • God is the artist and he has made us. We are his poem and we will make art.

I encourage you to read this book, maybe with a friend, and go on over to incourage to view the Bloom Book Club study of A Million Little Ways, A: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live.

      Isn’t that the truth! Besides this one another great book choice for over the winter break would be any of the Yada Yada books by Neta Jackson. Merry Christmas!
