It took me four months to write a thank you letter once. I wanted it to be perfect, and there never seemed to be enough time to give it my all. So I didn’t do it for four months. We do the same with our creativity.
Ideas. Material. Resources. Potential. Time.
Ability. Creativity. Flexibility. Stability. Capability.
There it is. A list of our lack. Scarcity shouts, “There’s never enough!” Not enough of us. Not enough of knowing ourselves. Not enough me. Not enough you.
In 2 Corinthians, Paul calls the believers in Corinth a letter written on his heart.
Did you know you are a letter? You are known and read by those around you, not with pen and ink or typed onto a laptop. Your life is written with the Spirit of the Living God. That’s the confidence of enough.Tweet This
One day I wrote that thank you letter quite imperfectly, terribly late, but more than enough to express what needed to be said. The recipient was glad to know I was still alive. Go be a letter. Step out of scarcity today. Don’t keep the world waiting.
Love from a Fellow Creative
- You’re always writing, amiga, because you are the story!
- Sacred pauses make room for God to work in you.
- I’m proud of you.

Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you. Christ himself wrote it—not with ink, but with God’s living Spirit; not chiseled into stone, but carved into human lives—and we publish it.
We couldn’t be more sure of ourselves in this—that you, written by Christ himself for God, are our letter of recommendation. 2 Corinthians 3:2-4 MSG
