My Father's Daughter




When God created the world,
he found joy in the act of creating.
In Genesis 1:31, it reads,
“God saw all that he had made, 
and it was very good.”
And because our Creator 
found joy in making things out of nothing,
He wanted to share it with us.
He created man in His image-
with the capacity to create,
with the aptitude to create with passion.
He gave man gifts and blessings, 
talents and love. 
He didn’t give these gifts 
to the animals, only to man.
We are born to create.
We are born to use our imagination.
When we create, 
when we bring something 
that wasn’t there into being,
we share in our Creator’s gift and blessing.
God created many beautiful things 
out of nothing. 
I look at how beautiful the animals are-
the different kinds of birds, butterflies,
even the strange creatures under the sea.
Look at the magnificent trees 
and mountains, the sunset.
God took so much care in 
forming these things 
for us and for Him to enjoy. 
Some of the things He created 
we will never even see! 
He created them for His pleasure! 
We too can create for our pleasure. 
We need not be making art 
for others to appreciate,
unless that’s part 
of our pleasure as well.
There is no limit to God’s creativity 
and imagination. 
And I believe God also gave us, each of us,
creativity and imagination with no limit. 
The more we use these gifts,
 the more we will have!
God didn’t destroy what to us 
are strange or funny creations.
Sometimes we don’t want 
to draw or paint 
because we say we can’t draw. 
Take a tip from God who appreciates 
His creations whatever it looks like!
And I realized that we would be
like father, like daughter,
if I enjoyed my creations as well!

Blessings!
Patsy

  5. Thank you for using your gift of creativity for His glory! I've been doing this myself now for a couple years and have decided to finally put it out there where others will see what I've done. Thanks again, you've encouraged me as I step out onto this new path.
