Jay enjoys coloring on paper. He will say letters as he writes. A, E and I are his go to letters at the moment. When you look at his drawings you wouldn’t think much of them. Most would say “Jay I like your scribbles!” However, as his mom I see a start to something amazing. Maybe he will be an artist, writer or architect one day. Who really knows! He holds his drawing up when completed and pretends to read it like a book. That’s why I lean more toward Jay being an author and illustrator in the future.
I wonder how often we look at our “scribbles” in life in disappointment as God looks with joy? This is because God can see the bigger picture to the journey we are just starting out on. Everyone starts at the scribble level. Some have passed the scribble level but in one way or another had to take a step back and go back to the scribble level. That’s ok too! You might be at the scribble level in your career, finances, healing, mental health, relationships and so on but don’t let that stop you. The scribble level is a start. You did something amazing just by choosing to pick up that “pencil” in life and start with a line or two. The scribble level will prepare you for the next. Best of all, God is working even when you are as some would say “only scribbling!”
“And though you started with little,� you will end with much.” Job 8:7 NLT
