Last night I was thinking about how incredible it is that we have the ability to create. Ponder that…

Do you find your joy in the kitchen? At a craft table? In the garden? Maybe at an easel? In the design of your home? Perhaps in making a scarf, or another accessory? Maybe even through the way you put an outfit together? This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the avenues in which we can express our creativity.

Have you ever stopped to consider the why of it all?

I believe that we are wired to appreciate beauty. And we are wired to create.

These facts are probably no better illustrated than by a little website you have likely come to know as Pinterest. There you will find people of all ages, races, and backgrounds who have uncovered a creative streak they may not have previously realized they posessed.

I believe we are all artists in the depths of our hearts, but some of us have not felt capable or dared to try, and some of us have simply not yet discovered what type of creating we were created for.

But make no mistake, you were created to create, because you were created in the image of a Creator. How awesome is it that He has allowed us to experience that joy? The next time you get that little thrill, consider that God in fact felt that joy 1,000 fold or more when he created you… and don’t waste the passions that He put in your heart! The ability to create should not be taken lightly, and never for granted…
