How God Spreads His Creativity Around

One of God’s most basic characteristics is creativity. Go and read Genesis 1. Yahweh Elohim has created the world ex nihilo, out of nothing. Genesis 2 gives us a picture of God as though He is on His hands and knees shaping and molding Adam out of the clay of the earth. What a wonderfully creative and complex creation the Divine Artist has made.

All I had to do was look at my parents’ grandchildren this Thanksgiving (and think of the ones who were far away).God has done His creative work nine-fold.

  1. Natalie: Works for Boeing in St. Louis, where she lives with her husband Ryan. She is a runner, an accomplished food-blogger, and a fantastic baker/cook.
  2. Julia: Is a nurse in the NICU at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis. She played college basketball, loves to read, and is an Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers fan.
  3. Ashlyn: Graduated from college with a degree in theatre and will be moving soon to Orlando, Florida, where she hopes to perform for Disney.
  4. Ben: Is a singer/songwriter going to Belmont University majoring in Entertainment Industry Studies.
  5. Quinn: Is a high energy college basketball player, theologian, and die hard Green Bay Packers fan.
  6. Madi: Has excelled at running, theatre, and is one of the most compassionate souls I have ever known
  7. Renatta: Is a witty, intelligent, senior in high school, who writes far better than many college students I know.
  8. Clayton: Excels at both football and basketball, and is consistently a top student in his class.
  9. Libby: is a dancer, fashionista, and a girl with a heart bigger than most kids her age.

Better than all of that, each and every one of them lives a life of faith in Jesus as their Savior.  Not only has the Creator created uniqueness in each of them, He has also created the gift of faith.

Take a look around. The Creative God spreads His creativity around.

How does the Creator show His creative hand in your family?
