Being creative is not a hobby; it is a way of life - Unknown
Did you know that YOU are an amazing creative being? Yes you! And did you know one of the reasons you are here is to use your creative talents and gifts to glorify His name along with the rest of creation? It sounds so incredible, doesn’t it? Every time I think about it, it sounds as if it should be the definition of what true beauty is.
Crazy as it may sound; I have never considered myself to be creative. I always thought that somebody who is creative could make colours come to life on canvas or sculpted images that inspired deep thoughts. It wasn’t until about a year ago,when I started my new job, that somebody casually stated, in a matter of fact way, that I was a creative person. It caught me totally off guard. It felt as if that person was speaking a foreign language or something, or that perhaps I had given the impression of being something that I clearly wasn’t.
I placed the ridiculous thought in the back of my mind and went about my business. But a week or two later 2 other people used exactly same way to describe me. From then onwards there was no turning back. There was a reason why this description affected me so. Simply put.
It was true!
And it isn’t just true for me; it is true for each and every one of us.
Creativity by definition is: Using your imagination and original ideas to create something or making the ordinary extraordinary. Although an artist is creative, creativity is certainly not limited to paintings, drawings or sculptures.
It is the way you do things. The way you go about your day-to-day in your creative unique way using the talents and gifts you were given. It doesn’t matter what “job” you do. It is the way that you do it which makes you a creative being. It is a testimony to the KIND of King Jesus is. It glorifies His name and He ignites the spark that eventually sets the forest alight!
You ARE creative, because you reflect the God of creation.
