Today has been full of some amazing conversations here on Maui about creativity that have been encouraging, inspiring, and even confirming with numerous people at the house I'm staying at and also at a local cafe that I went to.
These were conversations that are once again confirming for me that God loves us so much that He will take person A from place A and prompt them at a specific moment to go to place C for purpose A. Then He'll take person B from place B and prompt them at a specific moment to go to place C for purpose B. And person A and person B will "coincidently" meet and it's made clear that at that specific moment there is a purpose C that was meant all along for both person A and person B to be at place C at that specific moment....together.
It can be encouraging, influencing, confirming, uplifting, and inspiring. And it's such a witness to how much He loves people. This is the listening, this is the partnering with Him, this is the joining in the conversation, this is the coming alongside, this is the "it's not about the art, it's about the heart".
When I say the winds of change are blowing what I'm referring to is that when we are open to the conversations we are open to the cross pollination of ideas and thoughts, the sharing of stories and dreams, the sparks of creativity that can become fires of passion and flames of hope. and this can bring change. Change in the way we see things, change in the way we do things, change in how we connect with others, change in our plans, change in all numerous kinds of stuff and things. And with change can come new beginnings.
