YOU are poetry.

Posted: November 24, 2014 in fizzy faith

It was in first grade that, I remember, first experiencing the unequalled joy of creativity. My teacher was Mrs. Ethridge, incredible lady/fantastic teacher/nonstop encourager of children. There was an art contest. “Draw/color/paint what you want to be when you grow up”. I don’t know why, but I drew the 6 year old me as a fireman. I got 1st place! I got a lovely, wrinkled blue ribbon. I was affirmed for my art. It wasn’t a perfect picture (because it was created by the 6 year old me). As I remember, My head was way bigger than the rest of me. I didn’t color inside the lines (I still don’t), but that silly little drawing ignited something within the deepest parts of me.

I was hooked/smitten/caught by creativity.

It was what I was born to do…

I was created to create…

“It was by Him that everything was created: the heavens, the earth, all things within and upon them, all things seen and unseen, thrones and dominions, spiritual powers and authorities. Every detail was crafted through His design, by His own hands, and for His purposes.” Colossians 1:16

In the beginning God created…

God created EVERYthing, he carefully crafted palm trees, waterfalls, clown fish, coffee beans and You.

God made art. God made you. you are art.

There is a beautiful design behind IT all…

There is a beautiful design behind US all.

You are art, sometimes that is hard to believe because the original has been marred. Any art can be twisted, defiled or vandalized, but underneath the original beauty remains.

We are offered counterfeit, it might look good but there is something lacking. The colors are not as bright, something is just not right.

You are art, you are poetry, you are a song that needs to be sung.

There is a beautiful design behind you…There is a beautiful purpose for you…

Good art declares the fact that there is a Creator, a song shouts that there must be a Songwriter. There is no accidental art.

You are art, you are poetry, you are a song that needs to be sung.
