as artistically creative people, we enjoy the process as much as the product.
the brainstorming sessions can be as satisfying as the end result.
we enjoy the words that form the thought as much as the formed thought.
we listen to lyrics the first time.
we want more than just the bullet points.
we have the bonus that our art (of any type) is an expression of our soul… and other people can see it, feel it, experience it… if they so choose, and if we choose to share it.
arguably, accountants are creative with numbers, spreadsheets, and the like, but their work is not seen or celebrated by the general population. lawyers are creative with arguments. doctors are creative with treatments. houseparents are creative with discipline, budgets, households. the list goes on. but this blog is not about them… this is about you.
Being entrusted with such a wonderful ability to view the world differently, comes with great responsibility to manage it and protect ourselves from letting our egos get involved. we must keep our mind on the fact that all good things come from God. it is not our own doing that allows us to “create” but the creator who infuses us with his spirit and his work.
our glory is his glory. share your recent artistic endeavors with all of us. we know where it came from.
James 1:17 (The Message)
16-18So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.
