I remember reading somewhere that we are created to be creative. This saying has stuck with me ever since. I mean, think about it, our Creator created us from nothing. He created everything from nothing. What an imagination!
Therefore, if we are created in His image, it just follows that we would be creative people. Of course, this creativity manifests itself differently in different people. Variety is, after all, the spice of life! But sometimes this concept just blows my mind. I mean, if God created us, each and every single one of us in His image, then that just speaks to the magnitude of Himself. All the left-brain, right brain, type A, disorganized, scientific-minded, arts-minded, etc. come from Him. Every single personality type originated from God Himself. Is that not a reason for celebration of people in and of itself?
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
If only we could stop there….but, for better or for worse (and personally, I go with better!) we have free will. We then get to choose what we do with our creativity and how we display it. Some of us use it for good and to further God’s love, others use it for evil and destruction. Again, free will. But with that free will comes all of the manifestations of creativity. Some of them are wonderfully amazing, some just make me go…huh…?
All this to say, celebrate your creativity. Go for it! Do something with it. Draw a picture, make a graph, sew a dress, write a blog post, build a model, finally get around to crocheting that blanket, paint your front door like you have been meaning to, solve that math problem that has been bugging you, piece together a puzzle; whatever it is that brings you that internal joy, just do it. Do a little every day and celebrate the joy it brings you because in creating that joy, you are following in the footsteps of our very own Creator. And that, my friends, is definitely something to be joyful about!
