I came across a wonderful poster and I just had to use it at our 5:30 contemporary worship service a few weeks ago. It said, “Something Creative Created You To Be Creative.”
That something is God, in all God’s perfection. God created you out of the totality of perfect Spirit to be a drop of spirit on this earth, enjoying a physical, human experience, and God did that that you might also be creative.
God is pure creation. Creation is what God does. So if God created you – and God is creative – then it stands to reason that you too are created to be creative. It can’t be any other way. For me the truly comforting truth is that as we create we are creating out of God’s perfect direction and guidance. Our inspiration is the pouring out of Spiritual Energy through us to do something meaningful for God’s kingdom right here on earth.
Jesus calls us to be that creative force for good in our world following his Divine direction, knowing that he will provide all that we need in abundance as we need it.
So, where would you like to be? What would you like to be doing? How would you desire your life to look?
Begin by seeing Jesus there, waiting for you, preparing the place for you, making all things ready. The Christ is not only blessing where you are, but also blessing that place you are going.
Your life is meant to be creative and you can move forward knowing that your creativity is guided, blessed and inspired by a loving and perfect God.
“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God.” (Roman 8: 19)
Affirmation: “God’s perfect creative energy flows through me to bless and to touch the lives of all.”
