Drying Time

 My epiphany today was that just as in art the artist needs to let the layers dry or cure or set, so we must do that in this journey of faith.  
God starts with a blank space,

prepares it,

then slowly builds upon it.

Each layer adds a new texture, a new color, and new things emerge.  

This takes time.  When we rush the process we end up  something less than we can be if we take the time to step back, step away, and let the Holy Spirit work.

Yet if we take that time to let God work in and through us, just like a work of art we have the chance to be more beautiful than we thought we could be.

 Yet, O Lord, you are our Father;
   we are the clay, and you are our potter;
   we are all the work of your hand.  (Isaiah 64.8)

Mold me Lord and let me allow for drying time.   ~Amen


  1. Can we use a hair dryer to speed-up the process?

  2. I imagine you could, yet it might make things run together rather than build on each other.

  3. How beautiful and so very true!
