There is within us all
a desire to create.
Although not God,
we were made in His image
and He is a creative God.
So when I begin to put
things in order,
either in my home
or in my relationship with Him,
I am prone to become creative.
After spending time listening to God speak to me through His word,
I knew that somethings needed to be moved around,
somethings needed to be put in front
and others moved behind.
Alone, these pieces may be pretty to me,
and I may find pleasure in their simplicity,
and beauty in their uniqueness,
it is only when put all together
does it feel complete.
I feel somewhat disconnected,
a single egg, in a single basket,
a life that may spring forth
though isolated and alone.
I long to be outside of the cage
that I may have built around myself
or that others have locked me in.
I long to be connected
and creative and used for His purpose.
I will pray this prayer today...
God, if I have any hope of leaving behind hurtful things
in my past it will be because you deliver me.
Thank you that you are a God who delivers us
out of slavery and leads us to freedom.
Give me the strength to walk this journey
toward the Promised Land that you have for me.
When I get weary, uphold me,
when I lose focus, give me clarity,
when I want to give up, give me hope.
In Jesus' name.
I am thankful for a creative God,
WHO makes something out of nothing.
That gives me HOPE.
What are you creating today?
Better yet, how do you see God being creative in your life?
