This week's reflection focuses on waiting and the wisdom of God's timing.
Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
Have you ever stopped to think about how many forms of creativity there are? Drawing, painting, sewing, building, designing, writing – the list is endless. In fact, everything we do is creative. Creativity is a cycle where we have an idea, develop it, share it with others, and then we rest.
And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating that He had done. – Genesis 2:3
We should make each day holy so that after we rest in the dark, velvet blackness of the night we will awake refreshed to start another day, and dedicate whatever we do to God's glory.
We must never forget that we, too, are God's design and creation.
God of Design, allow me to be open to the inner beauty and the talents which You have bestowed upon me. Help me to use whatever craft or artistry at which I try my hand to create an offering which is acceptable to You and is to Your glory. Amen.
I need to see that whatever I create is beautiful and pleasing in the eyes of God. Praise and thank God for allowing me the freedom to create. Dedicate everything that I do each day to God. Take time to rest.
