Writers Block

It happens to everyone. It happens to writers, artists, engineers, moms, and dads too.  You need a creative moment and all you hear is . . . . . . . . . .

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

We are created in the image of God.  God is creative.  So if we are in His image, we are creative too.  He created the universe, the earth, all life, and humanity.  He uses words like we use a brush or a keyboard.  He can create without limitations.  Our creative ability is limited to what is available to us.  
We have to obey the laws of physics, He doesn't.  You get the picture.  

God is always in character.  He is always kind, just and loving.  He always has His best intention in mind for you at all times.  God doesn't have an off switch or an off day.  We are another story.  Our emotions change with the wind.  Our strength fails.  We struggle to stay positive, we work hard to do good.  

If you want your creativity to worship God every day then here are a few things you might want to do. 

Struggle with the process, not your worship.  A singer may practice and sing for years before he or she can become pitch perfect.  Does that mean that while they were hitting the sour notes, they were not worshipping?  No.  

If you haven't done something new in a while.  Ask yourself why.  Sometimes we will think that good enough is good enough.  It isn't.  If you are in a rut, do something to get out and stay out.  Let your worship express itself in new ways.  

Writers' block?  Can't think of anything to do?  Get some rest and try again.  Sometimes all it takes is a 20-minute nap.  Other times I've needed a few days off.  Worshipping from an exhausted place is difficult at best.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me to worship you today with all my heart.  AMEN
