Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Have you noticed creativity comes in many shapes and sizes? It seems we easily recognize creativity in the arts – dance, theater, photography, painting, sculpture. That kind of creativity brings us joy, laughter, and awe. It’s wonderful to experience.
But, what about other kinds of creativity? Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” The first words in all of Scripture point to a creative God. And a few verses later, it says, “So God created people in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Did you catch that? You and I are original works of art by THE Creator! Because we’re created in his image, each of us have some of his creativity which we demonstrate uniquely. You are creative.
The challenge for us this week is to be self-aware. When you find yourself breaking your routine and doing something different, thank God for your creativity. When you choose to take a different route to a destination than you normally do, thank God for your creativity. When you put a spin on someone’s else idea and make it better, thank God for your creativity. Creativity isn’t always breathtaking paintings, beautiful photographs, or imaginative novels. Maybe you’re a master of spreadsheets or baking. Perhaps you are a physician that needs to get to the root of health problems. Maybe you’re a mom or dad helping your kids with their online school work and you devise ways to keep them motivated. Each and every one of you is a creative, inspiring being. You’re a masterful work of the living God. Dare to think of yourself this way. Dare to dream! Live the way you want to be remembered!
