    When your identity is boiled down to what you can do, what you have, and who others say you are, what happens to you? Do you drift off into mere shadow and lose touch with reality? Do you fall into a constant flux of emotions, moving from depression to elation? Or do you fight in this return journey home and search for that still small voice that calls you the beloved? Does this journey end, or is this a continuous cycle as you repress your self righteousness and seek humility? "The great spiritual call of the Beloved Children of God is to pull their brokenness away from the shadow of the curse and put it under the light of the blessing." Henri Nouwen This piece is a collaborative effort on the part of Micha Bournes and Jerod Wanner. After many long talks about the personal struggle that many Christian artists face with their own pride in the midst of creating, this piece emerged. Watch the live performance of this piece here: http://vimeo.com/23083651 Script: I, am an artist creating beauty from pain of heart to the Glory of God. This gift is divine and I'd rather die than sell my soul to critics. In need of no professional to tell me I'm broken. I know it believe it and see invisible things. These visions are not hoaxes but reflections of me. My creations become cages for these ghosts in hopes to prove myself sane. It never works but the voices in my head assure me I'm not crazed. Dismissing the disdain of the masses I offer my masterpiece solely to my Master. Seeking no approval or applause, my art stands naked and unashamed of it's flaws knowing they are one and the same with it's strengths. People gawk at my provocative display. Blushing yet delighted as whispers turn to praise, grateful that I have felt their pain and painted their feelings. "Finally, someone said what we were all thinking." And now they're all saying that I, am an artist, and they are connoisseurs of my work. What I once did for free is now worth more than myself. And I can't help but believe what everyone tells me I, am amazing. And starving to death. Their compliments became my bread and I don't know if I'll live through this famine. So now I'm determined to prove that I am no fluke. In competition with my own skill and I've never faced a more strong willed opponent than me. But the tragedy in warring against oneself means every victory is also defeat. It seems I have lost, my way. Forgot why I create in the first place Forgot not to care about what they say or how much they pay. And nowadays it doesn't matter how much I pray, the heavens remain silent. And I, am alone. So I return to the only thing I know. I, am an artist creating beauty from pain of heart to the Glory of God.

                  A few months ago we were in Hawaii for Young Living’s Drive to Win promotion. The final night we were there, Gary (the founder / CEO) took a few minutes to talk about humility. He said something like this: Abundance is high on everyone’s list. Everyone wants abundance. Humility, though, is often less desired. But humility is the foundation for everything… Young Living actually sells two oils for each of these traits, Abundance and Humility. Oddly enough, the sales for those oils are about the same as Gary’s assertion. Everyone buys Abundance; fewer people purchase Humility. We thought it would be awesome to have distributors with the company film themselves talking about humility- what it is and why it’s important (here’s the video requesting their participation). We asked them to purchase the product and send us the clip after it arrived. We hoped Gary would see a surge in sales; we didn’t except Humility to sell out (watch the video above, to the end, and see what happened).
