Week 7 - Create

We are created in God's image and each day when I go outside I am constantly reminded of what a spectacular artist our God is and just how awesome is His creation. As a child I used to think that I wasn't "creative" that because I didn't have the skills of a painter, a drawer etc that I just missed out on the creative process. It wasn't until I discovered scrapbooking and paper craft that I realised I did have the ability to create. As we are created in His image ALL of us have the ability to create I've been feeling the desire to create, but not allowing myself the time. For the past month I've heard this whispering that "it's okay" to take that time, to find the time. Imagine the great and intense joy that God must have felt after He created the earth. The joy that we feel when we look upon His creation, when we see a glorious sunset, a beautiful flower, the colours of an exotic animal. So be thankful of the gift of creation, His for us and our ability to create and delight in doing so.

Verse : Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Prayer : Thank God for his glorious creation, for creating you & for the gift to be creative. Be also thankful that the works of your hands may be shared and be a blessing to others just as we enjoy God's creation.

Application : BE CREATIVE!! Take the time to create something this week & don't forget to take a photo and share here, please leave a link to your creation in the comments :-) . The form of creativity can be of any medium, scrapping, sewing, kneedle work. I encourage you to create something that includes a bible verse that God has been bringing before you over the course of this journey.
