I love to be creative
It’s not always about art either. I like to problem-solve, to discover new ideas, new books. I love to write.
I didn’t use to be an artist. As a matter of fact, I didn’t draw or paint before the mid-90s.
But visual arts now stimulates my thinking. I sometimes work with children, both in the schools and at VBS (Vacation Bible School). My focus is getting them to open up, be creative, try anything and everything.
Here is a children’s activity you can try with your children, grandchildren or friend’s children.

Satan makes a lie
The deceiver is full of lies. I am sure you have heard or said, “I can’t create.” Or “I’m not creative.”
The notion that you are not creative is a bald-faced lie.
Satan wants us to think we can’t do things.
But with God with can do anything.
Here is a great post about learning that we have nothing to prove — so follow your creative self. Written by Bett Harris.
The Day I Learned I Had Nothing To Prove
Freedom can sneak up us. What a wonderful surprise when it does!
Join a week of learning about your creative self
Yesterday we started a five-day discovery of “Created TO BE Creative” by Marian Parsons, in YouVersion. Join us. It’s never too late to join. The Plan is on-going.
Created To Be Creative
Embrace Your Creative Side & Use it for God's Glory. How are you using your creativity? Whether it's displayed in…
Today’s lesson is from Psalm 19:1
I read many versions of this verse.
This one from the Message spoke the clearest to me.
“God’s glory is on tour in the skies
God-craft on exhibit across the horizons.” (Psalm 19:1, MSG)
I visit art galleries. Do you? But most of all I like to see the Gallery of God. His creation is better than all we can create.
Some of my work is displayed at The Rails End Gallery in Haliburton.
But every day I can visit God’s gallery.
Come with me this week as we explore His gallery
The Passion Translation says,
“Space itself speaks of His story everyday.”
The NIV says,
“The heavens DECLARE the glory of God;
The skies PROCLAIM the work of His hands.” (Emphasis mine)
Our world is the Ultimate Gallery.
“I don’t see how anyone can look at the sky and not acknowledge that someone made it like that on purpose.
It is within us to appreciate God’s creativity and handiwork.” ~ Marian Parsons
Let’s really open our eyes this week to SEE His Work.
May I pray for you and me?
Lord, help us to have powerful spiritual eyes this week. Help us to see You in new ways. Help us explore Your world and discover a new depth to our walk with You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
