“ [Creative Living is]…living a life that is driven more strongly by curiosity than by fear.” Big Magic (Elizabeth Gilbert)
We serve a creative God. A God Who speaks the entire world into creation. We are created in His image. We have been given a spirit that is curious to seek and learn. But since the Fall, the Rebellion of humanity, that curiosity has been stymied by fear.
The fear of the unknown stalls us from stepping out in faith to explore, to experience, to enjoy. Fear keeps us feeling “safe and warm” in our small comfort zones. It whispers in our ear what could go wrong, how we could be hurt. Fear causes us to question our Creator God.
But what we must remember is we have been created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). Curiosity is deep within our souls. God desires to walk with us and help us experience His beautiful creative world. Fear, being afraid, has no room on our journey. It only hinders; it does not help us grow or explore.
To live a creative life requires us to open ourselves up to God’s leading and be curious. To surrender ourselves wholly to the Creator God Who loves us unconditionally. We cannot even begin to imagine what God has all ready to show us. And once we take the first step of faith we begin to be amazed at God’s creativity.
So a question for you…How are you held back by fear in your life?
Where would you like to explore God’s creation with a creative life?
What do you want God to show you?
Have no fear!
Go live the creative life God has just for you!
Explore. Experience. Enjoy.
Walk by faith. Keep in step with the Holy Spirit.
Take the step of faith into the grand adventure with God. Leave fear behind and ask the curious questions. They may seem small and insignificant. Always remember, you do not know what you do not know. God may just have an incredible teaching moment prepared to unfold before you.
So keep your eyes open. Ask questions. Be ready to be amazed by the Creator God.
You have been created to live a creative life with Jesus Christ. Be not held back by fear. Step out of the comfort zone to explore. Journey with Jesus Christ to experience. Be curious and enjoy. You have been freed from fear by the blood of Jesus Christ to live the creative life.
