2 Ways You Can Use Creativity Part 2

We’ve all heard it said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” In my experience I have found that statement true. At different times I have found that a picture I create whether it be a drawing, painting or photograph has been useful. God used each picture to bring healing, encourage or speak to someone. So how can a picture bring healing, encourage or be used for God to speak to someone?

In my Discipleship Training School I was given an assignment to ask God for a picture to draw and color. I was to also ask who that picture was for. While waiting for an answer the thought popped up to draw a brown house including a front porch with green grass and a river flowing nearby. Little did I know that picture would be used to bring healing to one of my classmates.

When she saw that picture it brought back a memory of a bad experience she had at a house like that in her past. Through that I got the opportunity to pray for her and let God heal her. Later I found out that very same picture encouraged another classmate that same day!

At a different time the Lord told me to draw a heart, write, “God loves you,” paint it red and send a picture text to one of my friends. When she saw it she told me she cried and that she needed to hear that God loved her. Through that picture and God’s words she was encouraged and it helped her when she was going through a rough time. In my next blog post I will share someone else’s testimony of how God used my photographs to speak to her.

2 Ways You Can Use Creativity Part 1

What do you think of when you hear the word, “Worship”? Do you think worship is just singing to God and/or playing instruments on a stage in front of a crowd? Even if we are worshiping God do we do so just to go through the motions or do we worship from the heart? Normally people worship with just music and/or words, but I discovered worship comes in different ways.

I asked the Lord one night how worship should go for students and staff participating the next day. He spoke to me and said He wanted us to get creative using art. All this included painting, drawing, writing, singing, playing music and photography. The Lord also showed me that worship comes from the heart.

As a child you have probably drawn or painted pictures to give to your mom, dad or someone you love. At that worship session being creative was like that example of simply choosing to draw, paint or create something from our heart to give to God who is our Father. Even just by having this freedom to choose to worship one of our leaders joyfully discovered something new that she enjoyed doing!

Now that you have an idea of what creative worship is I want to challenge you to create something! Your skill level doesn’t matter because the Lord loves it all! Even if it’s not for the Lord, just do it! You may be surprised at what comes out of that creativity.
