A Desire Realized is a Tree of Life (Book)

Embracing the privilege of creative expression is consistent with being made in the image and likeness of our Creator. I love it when he gives me fresh revelation and renewed inspiration that tells me of his unrelenting love for me and it causes me to never ever give up!

A talent that is buried is useless, but a skill that is utilized displays the Glory of God who gives all special abilities, talents and creative skills. Have you ever felt really stuck, spinning your wheels? This can happen to any of us creative individuals, it’s happened to me a few times in my life. Our inability to move forward is due to fear and issues of self worth. When I compare myself to others I become weak in faith, I see their gifts as being so much better and different to mine. Comparison can be a killer. When we were born of the spirit we received His resurrection power that heals, cleanses, restores and gives new life. Being Creative should be foremost on our minds as people of God. For me being creative has always been my happy place, I have a deep need to create and use my giftings, I simply must do it. What drives me to create is that it makes me feel good, it makes me feel whole, nothing missing nothing broken. It fills me with peace and causes me to be a blessing to others. The work of our minds and hands contribute to a culture of two Kingdoms fusing together. Having become aware of my creative nature and how it makes me feel, took years of uncovering layers of self worth issues.  As children we were all creative and we had no inhibitions about expressing our creativity, showing the world around us what we had inside of us. I remember as a child how I would spend hours creating drawings of interiors and I imagined what it would be like being a designer or architect. That was just one of the things I enjoyed doing, among many others. Our creator placed it all inside of us. Are you willing to let go of what you believe to be true about your creativity and embrace the truth of God? You have to be a brave heart and jump into that river of creativity and not let other people affect you by what they might say. Comparison produces fear and robs you of your peace and joy. Isn’t it wonderful that the life of Jesus so perfect and complete is able to flow through different individuals, giving unique flavours to what others are able to taste and see…
