Progress

I asked God to make me more vulnerable a while back, and God’s been steadily giving me opportunities to follow through and be vulnerable. It’s unbelievably hard and I really try to keep a poker face saying bits, but I’m trying. I want to trust that God has given me brothers and sisters to find community and similarities in. I want to trust that, no matter how embarrassing it is, God is using me. Even though I sound like I’m going to cry from nervousness or my testimony is all scrambled up without any sort of organization, God’s using me to bring Him glory. As Christians, we need to be ready to share the Gospel and our testimony at any moment. I feel compelled to write my testimony out, from beginning to end. A testimony that will never be complete because God is shaping and molding me every single day. I don’t ever want to keep God’s blessing from someone because I feel inadequate or because I don’t want to be viewed differently. I want to become unashamed and proud that despite being “in construction,” I am a living, breathing testimony that God lives through me. He has grace and unending love for a sinner like me.

"Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me." (2 Timothy‬ ‭1‬:‭8-12‬ ESV)

Going to tap into the artsy side lying dormant in me. I’m missing the creative freedom and detailed intricacy that goes into every line, color, and placement.

I read the article and this honestly makes me so fucking angry. I encourage all my followers to reblog the shit out of this. Share it on your Facebook and Twitter, too.

Please spare some time for Darren Rainey. This is a horrific brutality against a human being that is being swept under the rug by most media.

"I told Miyazaki I love the “gratuitous motion” in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.

"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said. "It’s called ma. Emptiness. It’s there intentionally.”

Is that like the “pillow words” that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?

"I don’t think it’s like the pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it’s just busyness. But if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb.

Curiosity

Sometimes as I am out and about, I see certain people that make me wonder, “What’s your life story?” Just yesterday I saw a young African American gentlemen, well suited up, walking in a hurry with three young children that appeared to be his. He was walking out of a not so great neighborhood and crossing a busy street. I kept thinking, “Is he a single dad struggling to make ends meet?” “Props to him for landing a full time job.” “Do you believe in God or has the world hardened your heart?” It’d be awesome to have a Humans of OC just like the Humans of NY. Haha.
