I will admit that sometimes I get a little carried away with my art, and I just want to be by myself and create. But given that my children's needs are much more important, there is many a day that my creating is limited to one or two 10 minute intervals in a day.
Sometimes I will set a goal for myself, and when it is not accomplished, I am disappointed in myself. I have to remind myself that God is in control, and if that goal was not accomplished, than He is telling me that I am not ready for it.
I am certain that God would not put these big dreams in my heart if they were not meant to be, so when my goals are not realized, I try to accept that the time is not right.
"When disappointment or rejection knocks you down, get back up and go again. We give up too easily on our dreams. We need to understand that just as God supernaturally opens doors, sometimes God supernaturally closes doors. And when God closes a door, it's always because He has something better in store."
