Are you creative? When creativity is mentioned, often the images that come to mind are obvious activities such as painting, playing music, or dancing. While these things are creative, they don't define creativity. Creativity defined is simply the use of your imagination or having original ideas. It is the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods and interpretations. I love this. So, let me ask you again, are you creative? :)
Did you know that you have something to create that no one else can?
And it releases a piece of heaven that no one else can release.
So what are you waiting for? It's time to stir it up.
Our heavenly Dad is the author of creativity! And He has given us the capacity to dream and imagine... and create. So what are we doing to steward this gift of creativity we've been given? If you love to write, are you writing creatively? If you love to work in business, are you working in business creatively? If you love to encourage, are you encouraging people creatively? If you love to style and decorate, are you styling and decorating creatively?
OK... now don't be overwhelmed, you only have to start with a little seed. :) Often when we refer to "sowing a seed" for our dreams, we talk about finances. Of course this is powerful, but in addition to our finances, another thing that is precious to us is our time. As we take our gift, and faithfully set aside time to stir it up, God sees this and it totally blesses His heart. :) Then He adds His supernatural favour to it and... hello miraculous creativity!
I feel like I have so many creative dreams in my heart, so about a year ago, I started setting aside every Thursday to stir up my creativity on purpose. So now "Creative Thursday" has become a highlight of my week, and God has literally blown my mind. So now I have come to realise...
So. Today's mission (should you choose to accept it) is easy. Make a creative appointment. Just like you make a doctors appointment or plan to catch up with a friend for lunch, make time for your "creative appointment" and plan your week around it. And guess what, when you do this... you just never know what might happen...
So go on, get out your phone, your diary, your wall calendar or whatever, and book in a time. Start with 20 minutes. And even if you don't know what you're going to do in this time, as you set aside time to stir up the creativity on purpose, trust me, God WILL do something amazing!!
So friends... in answer to my question, you are creative. So get ready, because as you steward your creativity on purpose... anything can (and will) happen!
Have a great Monday friends :)
