I think that my recent lack of inspiration comes from the fact that I have been reminded of what is really important to me- loving God and loving others. I have known this truth for a very long time, but my other hobbies and interests slowly took over... I do believe that God has given me a passion and talent for design and creativity- for things like sewing, crafting, cooking, etc. However, I think for a long time, I have let the creativity become more of a priority than glorifying God. Glorifying myself through creativity, rather than Him. My priorities were skewed. Since starting my blog, there was time that I was writing/creating everyday yet probably wasn't praying or reading my Bible everyday. See the problem?
Design and creativity are good things that we can enjoy. But our love for these things should pale in comparison to the Love that we have for our Father in Heaven. I pray that the Lord would give me wisdom in all of my hobbies and interests. That I would love Him and care about my relationship with Him infinitely more than any craft project. But also that He would give me opportunities to use my gifts and talents to bring glory to Him and to serve others.
What a blessing it is when God corrects our perspective on things! Praises!
Happy Friday, friends!
