"What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God." ~Elenor Powell
God is so creative! Look around at the splendorous world around you. He created this amazing world that we all have this tendency to take for granted. We fail to see the beauty in the everyday things surrounding us.
We get too busy with our daily lives and forget to take in the astounding beauty he created just for us! We too have this creative ability. We were made in God's image, right? So we too are creative....each and every one of us! God gifted each one of us with creative abilities....some of us are creative in the way we decorate our homes, the way we solve problems, or the way we communicate.
Some of us are gifted with the ability to engineer or design amazing creations like bridges....
Me, I was gifted with the ability to paint.
And these are my tools.
God put this desire in my heart to paint and eventually I could no longer deny it. For denying it was like telling God I wasn't worthy of this gift He had given me. It was like refusing it. But by using this gift He so graciously has given me, I bring honor to His choice.....glory to His name. For He uses this gift to reach out to not only me, but to others. I am His vessel and I can choose to honor Him by doing what He has called me to do....or I can choose to put it off, make excuses, and not honor His choice to give me this gift.
What gift has God given you? What desire has he placed in your heart? He placed that desire there for a reason. To motivate you to do what He has called you to do. He is that still, small voice that won't let you ignore it. He whispers to your heart....fans the desire. Don't ignore it....for in doing so, you choose to not honor your purpose....your God given purpose.
I've chosen to honor Him.
What will you choose?
