It becomes, at times, slightly aggravating to have so much creative energy and no way to express it.
I am a painter without enough talent to paint what I see -- divine, most vivid, colorful dreams.
I am a composer without enough talent to compose what I hear -- the steady heartbeat of the bass drum, the dance of snares, the passion of woodwinds and tender melody of flutes, the solid confirmation of brass, the cry of strings, and the joy of bells.
I am a dance choreographer with no formal training. But my heart is so filled with worship that I cannot sit idly by and let the dance die.
I am an architect without building materials. So I live in a multitude of dream castles richly furnished with love and lightly scented with roses, mountain rains and spice.
I am an author without enough talent to write what I feel, though try I must, or grieve for the loss of a thousand unsung, never-materialized masterpieces that float in and out between my ears and slowly ebb to nothingness.
But I do lose the masterpieces. And they become, though beautiful at one time, mere noise. Where do they come from? Why are they? For what purpose do I see and hear if I cannot lay them out to be seen and heard? Who hears and who sees these things? Are they even mine? No! They belong to the Master Painter, the One who sings over me, the Author and Finisher of my faith.
You will blossom one day. Your masterpiece will appear one day. God is preparing you for it. The fruit will ripen one day. The flower will blossom one day. Wait for
God's opportune time. His Time is the best time. His Will is best for you. God bless, Miriam.
