Have you ever seen a sunset and knew there had to be a Creator, or heard music that made your soul long to dance before the Lord?
We were made to reflect our Creator. To do so means to create. I am a simple person, but I believe that one of my highest callings is to reflect the Creator through my writing.
At our church we have Bob Burrows—maker of unique wooden crosses, Jeremy Sizemore–creator of wooden flutes, M. Christine Weber–author, Carolyn Watson, Sarah Leader, and Donna Johnson–gifted photographers, as well as many other individuals who share their gifts and talents with Father’s House.
In her book, Prophetic Worship, Releasing the Presence of God, Vivien Hibbert makes a case for the Lord being the Consummate Artist:
He is a poet (Job 38-41).
He is a writer who has written the greatest best-seller of all time—the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16).
He is a story teller and actor. Jesus used parables in the Gospels to convey mysteries (Hosea 12:10).
In all of these, he is without compare. There is none who can match his artistry, excellence, and genius.
How do you display the wonder of the Lord through your art? In what way do you release the presence of God through the artistic gift he has given you? I’d love to hear from you.
In Him together, Susan Gaddis
