Hey, guys, have you ever stopped to think about the incredible creativity God has given you? I spent YEARS talking myself out of being a “creative!”  But, more recently, I realized that our Creator made us to be creative too, each in our own unique way. It’s not just about painting a masterpiece or composing a symphony, although it could be. It’s about realizing that God has deposited a spark of creativity within you that extends to all aspects of your life. It’s in the way you problem-solve at work, the adventures you tackle, and the way you express your thoughts and emotions. When we try to mimic others, we stifle our creativity, and shut down what God is trying to do in us. But when we embrace our creative identity in Christ, it’s like discovering a hidden treasure. It should excite you to know that by tapping into your God-given creativity, you’ll find peace, fulfillment, and your true purpose.

Ephesians 2:10 (ESV)

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
