Why Do We Create?

  I wanted to take a break from the projects & recipes today & focus back on why we create. Have you ever thought about that? Why do we desire to create beauty... whether it be crafts, furniture makeovers, or tasty recipes? I believe it comes down to us wanting to be like our Creator. God created each of us with unique talents & abilities. Think of it - Not one person on this earth is exactly like another person! The creative power of our Father God is incredible. I believe our wanting to create a little bit of beauty of our own comes from a desire to be like more like God.

  And there's nothing wrong with that. I love how Bailey from Let Birds Fly puts it,

"Exodus 35: 31-33, 35 says, "and the Lord has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills--to make artistic designs of work in gold, silver, and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts....He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers-- all of them skilled workers and designers."

To this day, what we do is for the glory of Christ. God gave us skilled hands; with everything we make, craft, create, draw, paint, cook, etc, it should be to the glory of God, because He is the one who commanded us to use our talents.

   I couldn't agree more! God didn't give us talents for us to squish in the back of a closet & never use. We are to use them, enjoy them, & create with them - to His glory!


So go create something wonderful & know that you're using the gifts that God placed in you to enjoy.

Have a fabulous day!
