“Surrender your desires. Surrender what you want to see happen. Surrender your plans, your ideals, your dreams and visions. Bring them to the altar.

Your imaginations breed life-giving transformation as a canvas I paint upon to bring about change and strategy. They are a blank page where I write my story, so bring them to me and allow me to break down what you want to see.

Let me show you what I want to see. Bring forth that idealistic plan of yours, or even your idea of realistic, and let me show you the age-defying, resource-defying, possibility-defying ideas. Let me take you on a journey. Let’s spend time together mapping out a business, a market, a lesson plan, or a creative project.”

Spend time today with God, laying down piece by piece your desires and dreams before Him. He wants to mould them, refine them and bless them!

Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Romans 12:1
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.

  1. 2 Corinthians 10:5. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

    God does not want you to start a creative business. He wants you to get involved in His business – building the kingdom of God. Go you into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

    People are dying right now without knowing they are going to hell unless they know Jesus.

    I am a ‘fully qualified’ and professional artist. I have a creative God, but my God is NOT creativity. God has given me a gift, a voice – and a calling, but I am not to use it to promote myself. Read your bibles for yourselves.
    Isaiah 40
    A voice says, “Cry out.”
    And I said, “What shall I cry?”

    “All people are like grass,
    and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field.
    The grass withers and the flowers fall,
    because the breath of the Lord blows on them.
    Surely the people are grass.
    The grass withers and the flowers fall,
    but the word of our God endures forever.
