Create A Spark #1

As i try to keep stirring myself in creativity, i thought blogging on things that begin to create "sparks" in me could prove to be helpful. So here's Create A Spark #1

Genesis 1:1 - In the beginning God CREATEd the heavens and the earth.

The word "creativity" never appears in the bible (not even in The Message translation) and yet we see creativity bursting throughout the bible. The description in Genesis of how God formed the universe is quite breath taking when you sit and think about it.

In perhaps the biggest understatement ever written, Genesis 1:16 - "God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.", we see He created these out of nothing...

There was no one else's work who he pinched, no magazine who's ideas He incorporated into His own, no one else's who inspired Him to be creative, as God is creative, it is what makes Him who He is...

So many times i catch myself trying to find someone or something that will help spark off something in me, when actually what i should be doing is coming back to God, letting Him captivate me and marvelling at Him.

When you see who He is, what He has done and is doing, creativity will flow...
