question: who gets to be creative?

hint: it’s everyone.

 

One of the most popular lies I hear these days, is that people are not creative. Creativity, an unattainable ideal, it seems has been reserved for only an elect few. It has been reserved for the artists, painters, photographers or designers, & everyone else is just out of luck. Or so people think.

I have come to realize, after over thirty years of studying human creativity, that the great divide is not between those who are artists and those who are not, but between those who understand that they are creative and those who have become convinced that they are not.
— Erwin McManus, "The Artisan Soul"

Before you tell me you are not creative, let me, let you in on a little secret-

you are creative.

you have been created, to create.

You are created in the very image of the ultimate Creator and no matter who you are, or what you are passionate about, you have been created to create.

Creativity is built, imprinted even, right onto your DNA.

So you DO have creativity, but are you cultivating it? 

If we are inherently spiritual creatures, we are by our nature creative beings. Yet we live in the fear that if we aspire to be more, we will discover ourselves to be less. We live in fear of failure, convinced that failure will prove us to be frauds. We have bought into the lie that creative people never fail and hence failure is proof that we are not creative. So we get back in line, our dreams in check, and condemn our souls to a slow and painful death. Fear is the shadow of creativity. When we choose to create, we bring light to our fears. The darkness does not prevail over us.
— Erwin Mcmanus, "The Artisan Soul"

We must risk to create. Risk is important to the process, & failure, rather than a hinderance, should be a fuel. When we fail, we grow. When we risk, we gain. It is a matter of hope, of slowing down long enough to be quiet and listen, of being moved by the heart of God to create something unique, of dreaming, of risk, of beauty, of failure and of success. 

We are all given a blank canvas to paint on. What are you passionate about? What excites you? Wake up each day and live it, have fun with it, get creative and enjoy it. There is no secular vs. sacred divide, only co-creating with the Creator of the universe. Be the best you, you can be and live life it to the fullest. Create something unique, create something beautiful. We are given life and the freedom to choose how we want to live it. How will you paint yours? 

As for me I will risk, I will laugh, I will create- hand in hand with my God. 

For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.” Romans 8:1
