Creativity: More Possibilities

Because God is in all things, every moment of your life contains more possibilities than you can perceive. Because God is creative and has made you creative, you can count on there being more options than what are now apparent.

We think of creativity as a quality we apply to writing or painting or building. But creativity is required most in daily situations, especially those that are going badly. Creativity can help us see a better way. Creativity opens our eyes and minds to the options that at first seem nonexistent.

Do you feel that you’re up against a wall today? Do you feel trapped, unable to solve a problem, out of ideas? Pray for the ability to see with God’s eyes and to perceive your life with God’s creative mind. There will be a way. God is present. And you are full of more solutions and fresh ideas than you now imagine.
