Follow Your Arrow

When I saw this saying I knew I had to paint it.

What does it mean to follow your arrow?  It means we are doing what God put us on this earth to do, being who He created us to be.

Oh, it seems so easy to say, but the doing is harder.  We are influenced by so many outside forces: parents, friends, media, teachers--the world's opinion of who we are and what we should be.

I have always told my children God's opinion of them is the only one that matters and God says that they are fearfully and wonderfully made in HIS image.  What we do does not define us, what people say about us does not define us, God does.  God created us with a purpose and our purpose may not be the same as the person next to us.  We have a path, an arrow to follow.

I continue to discover who God says I am and continue to find what His purpose is for me through prayer and reading His Word.  It is definitely a path of discovery.  Ask God today what your arrow is, where does He want to lead you?
