I love drawing in ballpoint pen. I love the fact that you have no ability to “undue” a stroke that you have made. Whatever you do, you have to do it on purpose, and any mistake you make you have to figure out how to work with it or run the risk of scraping your entire piece. (I could however do without the “blobs” of ink that roll of the pen head every now and again.)
We need to take the same approach in life. We need to go at all challenges and goals with purpose, but learn how to use our failures as stepping stones towards our goals; work them into the masterpiece of our destinies.
As a believer in Christ, I rest secure in the Word that says,
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
All means…well, All. There is hope in knowing that, but with the “all” is the word “purpose”. We should act and do and create on purpose, for good, and rest in knowing that no matter what, no matter the unforeseen blob of ink or unintentional smear, all things will work out, even the best intended misplaced stroke.
