Creativity Connection

I spent my early morning hours coloring a garden-type scene. I enjoy coloring plants! So many shades of green! So many textures!

I wonder how long God pondered the colors, textures, and characteristics of each plant before He spoke them into being?

I wonder how wide He smiled as He considered the colors of the Monarch butterfly and the flashing light of fire flies? As I personally believe He enjoyed every second of creation as I enjoy painting and coloring.

Do you enjoy coloring or being creative?

I personally believe the reason why so many people enjoy coloring (or woodworking, painting, planting gardens, knitting and the like…) is because they’re actually connecting to the One who created them.

We are creative beings! We create with our voices. We create with our minds. We create with our hands.

So God created human beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27 NLT

Point to ponder while you wander…

I feel closest to Him when I am writing, taking photos, coloring, painting, or otherwise creating 🖌📸✏, when I wander around appreciating His artwork 🌌🏞🏜, or looking at art others created 📷🖼🎨.

Art and nature is how God speaks to me most often, and how I relate to Him. I have friends who relate to God in music, and others who connect by just acknowledging His Presence & sitting quiet and still.

How do you connect to God?

No Camouflage 

This is a painting I made for a friend, a camoflauged version of Psalm 139. Which is all about being unable to hide from God and His love for you. I liked it. She liked it. So I’m sharing it.

Adam and Eve tried to hide from God in the Garden because of what they had done. We all know that we cannot hide from an all-seeing and all-knowing God. But most of us still try it. It’s silly and pointless but we do it.

But why?

Shame. Fear. Guilt. Those are all tools of the darkness, the enemy, to steal your joy, hope, peace, and distract you from your purpose.

Take your mistakes immediately to God, because in the light there is hope, healing and restoration. 

Point to ponder while you wander…​There’s no camouflage from God. He sees you, even if no one else sees you. You are not invisible nor forgotten, but engraved on the palm of His hand. Nothing can stop Him from loving you. Nothing!
