Loving all God's people

" That is why since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God's people, I have not stopped giving thanks to God for you. I always remember you in my prayers ..."

Ephesians 1 : 15 - 16

God's creative heart ...

Can I just tell you how excited I am that I have a God created me with a creative heart.

Sometimes I am intense and frustrated ... other times I am bursting in the flow ... today I am living in the moment and accepting what comes.  Every day is different.

But that is what I love about creative energy ... it isn't consistent ... it isn't neat and ordered ... it is chaotic and messy and unpredictable ... but the results are exciting and fulfilling and make me smile.

I have been reading a lot of blogs about creativity versus productivity, it seems to be a hot topic at the moment. How to overcome procrastination and turn on the creative tap.

And it has got me thinking ... what does God say about creativity? ... lots and lots actually ... not only in what he has said through his word but also what he has done.

God spent the first 6 days creating ... so his first act was creation ... and much of his word speaks of putting our hands to good and honest hard work, that is productive and builds up his people.

Proverbs 31 talks of a woman making good use of her time ... making good choices, working with eager hands and being generous.

'From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things, and the work of their hands brings them reward.'
Proverbs 12:14
' In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.'
Genesis 1:1
'So God created mankind in his own image,'
Genesis 1:27  

So my intention is that my creative endeavors build and encourage faith ... that they point to my creator and shine the light on LOVE and JOY and PEACE and JESUS.

... and I become more and more like the woman of Proverbs 31.

 Be blessed and be a blessing
