In a world filled with nothingness and through the lens of utter void, God crafted a world of beauty and ordered the chaos of an unchartered land. Unlike the beginning of time, our world is amassed with people and activities. The slates of our lives are filled with responsibilities and expectations that often leave us feeling chaotic.
So how does one weed through the daily grind, endless information, and never-ending tasks to clear a path for creative endeavors? The resounding call to do more—blog more, comment more, work more, buy more, volunteer more, attend more events—can have us on the Ferris wheel of life without taking a moment to step off and stroll at leisure.
Remember Your Design
I must admit I have not figured it all but I believe the first key to making room for creativity is to remember our original design. You were made in the Father’s likeness to be a reflection of Him in the earth. In the beginning, we find Him creating, speaking, and bringing order.
Have you managed to lose sight of your original intention?
While might not all have the same happenings in our lives, we each have been given the same 24 hours each day. Activity and productivity are highly prized in society but solitude is often neglected. Although we might not hear magnitudes of voices urging us to spend time alone, its what we need to clear out the noise of life and get the creative juices flowing again.
Do you purposely set aside alone time each day?
How about carving out some special time this week for just you and your thoughts.
