Genesis 1:27 (erv)

So God created humans in his own image. He created them to be like himself. He created them male and female.

When I was 19, I decided to go to school to be a medical assistant. After that, I went back to school for nursing. I worked in the medical field for the first 5 years of my “career life”. And I never really enjoyed it. I often felt trapped and restricted, like I couldn’t really be myself. I came home at the end of the night exhausted, but with an incredibly restless mind.

I’ve always loved to create in some way, but I believed that being creative couldn’t be a real job, or that it wasn’t helpful or beneficial to the world. I thought creating was just a hobby, left for those rare, few moments of “free time”.

That’s simply not true. The Bible tells us that God made us in HIS image, and the very first thing we learn about God in Genesis is that he’s incredibly creative. He created our entire world, from nothing. And when he created, he did BIG things. He didn’t just make fruit, he made hundreds of types of fruit. And he didn’t just make types, he made subtypes. We get to walk in to the store and choose what type of apple we want to buy (although why anyone would get anything other than Honeycrisp is beyond me).

We get to create because God gave us the ability to. That’s not a waste. That’s a gift; a gift that can be shared with others. Don’t let the world tell you who you’re supposed to be, or what you should be doing with your time and your life. If God gave you something, it wasn’t an accident or an oversight. It was on purpose, and you get to decide what you do with it.
