What kind of a life picture are you painting? You are gifted with talents and a calling that is unique and part of the vast vision God has for His people on this planet. Each day we have the opportunity to add brushstrokes to our personal canvas by taking simple steps of obedience at work, in our homes, at church, and together as a nation. I am challenging you to say "yes" to God and consider each "yes" as the stroke of a brush, painting a masterpiece of your life. Ignoring God's voice results in an incomplete picture lacking the exquisite perfection required to fulfill God's plan as He intends it to be. Missed opportunities through disobedience can be the difference between a bold, colorful life and a dull existence. If we want to be successful and have a significant impact walking in our life purpose, obedience is required. As believers, we should be so in tune to the voice of the Holy Spirit that we don't even question if we are hearing His voice because we know in our "knower" that He is Emmanuel, God with us, speaking to us.
