Rest in His unchanging love,
For you are beloved.
Be here in this identity.
Relax your body,
Stretch your mind,
Still your soul.
Let Him hold your heart.
You will always make
As the One who formed you.
Let the rest go.
Love from Fellow Creatives
This is the last day of #write31days, and we’ve got double the encouragement!
“Art is what happens when you dare to be who you really are.” -Emily Freeman
When we dare to be who we really are, we offer the world the specific artistic gift we have been given. This gift is unique to you. Only you can share your slant on this life. Only you can create sculpture or melody that speaks deep to others’ hearts.
Comparison wants us to look around us and see what we could be doing. It wants us to see what lays in our hands, head, and heart as not enough. But when you dare to be you, when you stand firm in what you have been given as enough, you break the hold of comparison. You are free to behold the work of other creatives around you and fiercely encourage their gifts and celebrate together.
–Janel Andrews, storyteller + poet.
God created us all different and unique. Each of us has a different story to tell. Different words to speak and different ways of telling the same truth. So continue to speak, write, and be creative. God is using each of us to tell the truth is a way our people will resonate with, in a way their ears and hearts can hear.
Don’t get discouraged. Be encouraged. Create!
–Theresa Boedeker, author + storyteller.
When the church in Jerusalem got wind of this, they sent Barnabas to Antioch to check on things. As soon as he arrived, he saw that God was behind and in it all. He threw himself in with them, got behind them, urging them to stay with it the rest of their lives. He was a good man that way, enthusiastic and confident in the Holy Spirit’s ways. The community grew large and strong in the Master. Acts. 11:22-24 MSG
Where will you rest your creative identity?
