I was in the middle of creating a wonderful post. Great references to a new podcast artist I discovered. There was information containing deep mighty meat to help free you to worship as you were created.
The writing for the post was smooth. The content was inviting. Tragedy to a computer creator occurred: Not only did the writing for the post become a ghost in cyber space, so did the notes from the writer’s group concerning this artist, the poem and his podcast. :(.
Stepping up to the plate, I shook off the frustration and continued. I determined not to allow the pain of the circumstances to write my story. Instead, I am rewriting the story with the tools I have been given. March ON
The challenge of each podcast I have listen to dares you to create with the gifts God has has you. Are you willing to take your creativity and yourself to a deeper level?
The artist, the creative has a dual calling upon her life. One is to live a life with a view through God’s lens, so she can be willing to see the world through His heart.
The other calling is to create through God’s lens. This may not always mean the picture is pretty but to look through the eyes of Jesus, is to see Victory. This is not a wimpy, limpy, no contact Jesus who has never experienced hardships.
This is the Beaten Unmercifully,
Arm Outstretched, Hands Nailed to the Cross,
In Love for You and Me
Three days later Victoriously RISES FROM THE DEAD
With this thought in mind I challenge you to DARE TO CREATE!
Dream past the experience of pain.
Appreciate that God calls you to feel what He feels.
Rare Gift. Humbly take this rare gift and
Express!! Once you walk in the very Heart of God, You cannot keep it inside.
The person who hears this call will allow God to wash away everything keeping her from hearing His voice. The artist who has this calling deep inside will not allow the cares of this world to blind side her from seeing who she is in God’s love. No better and no worse than any other person.
The writer, painter, photographer, creative, will work on her skills to enhance her craft. She does not become sloppy in her field. Her craft is always calling out to the next improvement. She needs to keep from being sucked into the newest craze and media prompt, but also keeps her muscles from becoming limp and out of touch with the world.
Why keep in touch?
The world needs to receive what God has to offer. He has given wonderful Gifts to His children. He is the Gift to Share!
After you read Matthew 25 :14-28, think about your craft. Do you, can you put your creative gift in this scripture? How are you tending what God has given to you?
Dare to create and
Engage in the discussion with comments how you feel God is calling you to a deeper level of co-creating with Him as He calls you to live and share the gifts He has given you.
Remember, we are all on this journey together.
The podcasts I am referring to are Makers and Mystics
