Your Art Matters

Deep down inside we want to know that what we do matters. That what we create has meaning and resonates with someone on a heart-to-heart level. And when we're feeling insecure and at our lowest we want someone to be remind us to never give up because it matters to them.

This scene from One Tree Hill really stuck with me because it illustrates just that. You may or may not be a fan of the show but if you're an artist, writer, musician or any other type of creative person then these three words will touch you in a truly profound way: "Your art matters."

If you need someone to whisper those words to your soul then look no further than God because you and your art matter to Him. Keep pressing on!

I've never watched "One Tree Hill" before, but that was a great clip.

We all want validation from others, but all that really matters is that God appreciates us all!

I know that I really feel great when people stop by my blog and tell me that they enjoy reading it.

So thank you so much for sharing that clip!! :-)
