Music has a way of elevating my soul. It speaks through the deepest darkness, of one where I unite with my divine creator. I think it’s beautiful how we create from a place of vulnerability, of emptying ourselves and letting go of our inner inhibitions. Whether you are an artist, a dancer, or a musician, it doesn’t really matter. What matters most is the space where you create from. Do you allow or do you withhold?
We learn to be brave because we create from our own stories. We believe in purpose and mission, for without it, everything is meaningless. A picture perfect piece speaks nothing but one without flaws. Great art happens only when you create from within. A space that you call your own, one that you belong to, and one you call home.
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss.
We need to let go, and let God. Our worth is found in God, because only God knows, He sees and He understands. To always look to God for strength, and courage because only He can inspire. The greatest thing about being an artist- is to see God everywhere, because we are made this way.
Creative expression is not always easy to express. It is only by the grace of God that one can break down barriers of their own. To simply plunge into the moment of creating takes courage and faith. For without it, art is simply meaningless. Art, like faith is always a process, and being in the presence of God makes it all the more awe-inspiring. Words cannot describe the beauty and wonder of God.
I remember taking a picture of this beautiful sunset at Upper Seletar Reservoir, a day filled with hope from the Lord. How He surprised me that day, was one that I will always treasure close to my heart. I remember one of the photographers exclaiming, ‘Wow! It’s like a masterpiece.’ It was a day filled with wonder, as I watched the sunset passed by. This day was truly a gift from God, it was special.
He showed me that in moments of despair and disappointments, I could turn to Him. Even if I choose not to respond to God, He would still reach out to me. His magnificence and generosity has showed me that He truly cares. It is He who has carried me far, letting me know that He is truly present in my struggles.
God is always by my side
