the Artist's Way - Week Five - Day One

Week Five - Recovering a sense of possibility.

We unconsciously set a limit on how much God can help us or give us. We set these limits, but in truth there are no limits to his power.

We pray to catch the bus and then we run as fast as you can. Did you catch the bus because of God's assistance or because of your effort? If you are able to believe that it was an action of both, then you have the faith you need. Some of us chalk our fortunes up to mere coincidence. We send in a story and it comes back accepted, after praying every night for this acceptance. It is true not all prayers are answered, but for reasons we may not understand.

"Sometimes God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers."

Creativity is a spiritual issue. We make progress by making a leap of faith.

Through our morning pages, we reconnect with our true selves, discard physical dependencies, and learn to accept God's generosity.
