We all have creativity within. God who is our Creator is a creative God with a creative people. Our art has to be tapped into in order to experience growth in many areas of life. James Russell Lowell quoted “Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found.”
There are many activities that kids and adults can explore. Scrap-booking, writing, music,dance, cooking, baking, jewelry making and many more ways of taking that route. You don’t have to be highly skilled at these to do them. They can be done just for fun and leisure. Although making something is one way to express creativity, it is not limited to that. Someone once asked me the question, “Can it be the way you engage with people too?”
To take anything to the next level, it must be practiced regularly. There may be a local community center or group that you can join where you’ll meet others in that particular interest. Maybe you can possibly work along with them in developing art? While on that adventure you may want to try new activities to know which one(s) you may be interested in and would enjoy the most. Often times we have to be willing to bring out what God has placed within us.
Artistic efforts are great stress breakers. Painting and other activities alike are very therapeutic. Some may say, “I’m not good enough to even dabble in artsy stuff and I make too many mistakes?” We all make mistakes, even the most talented make mistakes in what they do. Great things can be made out of mistakes and whether they are huge or small. Scott Adams quoted “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
God who made the heavens, earth and everything that’s in it, has placed something special in each and everyone of us.
We have something to make, something to create and something to share.
