All these sweet things have been shared this week about our journey as artists and drawing from the source and I just want to say a big YES to all of it. Such good wisdom to remember as artists and women of God. One thing that has been in my thoughts lately and is from time to time is the element of creativity in our work as artists. Who measures creative, not creative? What tells us this is good, this is not? As an artist this is not something that I spend too much time worrying over, not because it's not a valid question, but because I honestly feel that I have been given freedom over it. A verse I love is 2 Corinthians 3:17
I think of this freedom when I examine my heart as an artist. It's almost like God has given me holy blinders that keep me from constantly comparing my work to others, but more than that, He reminds me that He is the source of my creativity. I don't have to worry about coming up with new ideas because I know when I need to, He will give them to me. He will put something new on my heart. I know that my work won't get stale as long as He is my God. He will guide me and it will be for His glory.
This freedom is for you as well, for all of us. As His daughters we have a direct line to His heart, to His spirit of creativity, and we have been given freedom in creativity, let's dance in that freedom. I know that any time I have a good idea it comes straight from Heaven, like mana, except I never get tired of it. What if our Father is just waiting for us look up to Heaven and ask him, what's next? What's your next project for me? Where are we going? I know I don't do this enough, but when I do it is always the best answer, greater than I can ask or imagine. Let's look up together today and say, what's next?
