Weekly Encouragement: Create

Here’s a quick thought to encourage your heart:

God is a Creator, and we are all made in His image. Sometimes, we think that only certain types of people, or certain giftings, are the ones that qualify as creative. That’s comparison talking, and it’s a lie.  You are carrying a creative calling on your life.

You are made with an innate ability to create within you. Maybe it’s not music or dance or performing, but that doesn’t mean a thing. Maybe you create a safe place for people to come as they are. Perhaps you are creative in the ways you find to encourage and value other people. Your creativity could be all the new methods you find to do your job well. You might be creative in the ways you explain God to those who don’t know Him.

You are made to creatively bring good to this world, just like your Father.

I may not know the specifics of who you were created to be, but what I do know is that you are a creative person. There is an aspect of God that you reflect. You have the ability to change the atmosphere around you and to bring color and light into darkness. In Christ, you are powerful, you are beautiful, and you are invited to be a voice in an awe-inspiring Story that’s bigger than time itself. Ask the Holy Spirit what He wants to create in you, and through you. It’s ok to start small. Just be someone who believes that God made you to create something awe-inspiring with Him. What will you create today?
