“Whatever your hands find to do, do with all your strength” (Ecc 9:10)

Some time ago, a young sister in Christ, has told me that she is learning how to paint. She is a graduate waiting for a job. But she decided to learn how to paint as a hobby. She bought some water and oil colors just before the lockdown. For the past three weeks she has done two paintings (as you see in the picture).

What is the lesson? This is an idea, to invest your time and your hidden talents in something you always wanted to do. Don’t say that you cant do it. That is a lie! You can never know until you try it! Do not waste your time, even if you have to stay indoors from morning till night. Don’t sleep too much; don’t eat too much! Be creative! Try something new! Do not listen to what negative people say! Don’t do it just to sell it. Do it for your pleasure alone. Make yourself happy! Trust God to help you learn a new skill. You can do it! May God bless the work of your hands!

I will appreciate prayer and a word of encouragement for this sister. She will read your comments. God bless you all!

    She is truly gifted! It’s difficult to imagine her not painting, not sharing her talent. Joy just exudes from that piece with the girl smiling and looking upward. My God continue to bless the work of your hands, for encouraging her and us!
