and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts.
Exodus 31:3-4 (NIV)
|Believe that the God that created |
you wants you to bring forth beauty.
Never stop chasing Grace and Peace,
and your dreams.

God teaches me the most remarkable lessons in the most unusual ways. After much encouraging, I started writing them down. First came a blog, then regular writing gigs, and now I have an eBook. My book baby was born today.
The Creator places within each of us the desire and the capacity to make beauty in the world. The following biblical commentary on creativity can be found at gotquestions.com,
“In the hearts of all who are skillful I have put skill.” We learn two things about God’s view of art in this passage: He likes it, and He is the source of it. He wants man to create beautiful things, and their skill in doing so is from Him.
Lessons Learned from My Downward Facing Dog is now available on Amazon.com. I’m a little stunned and a lot excited. I would never have attempted this without encouragement from friends and family and a structured writing group led by Ashley Wells called 31 Days to write your eBook.
I’m off to celebrate, but I’m leaving you with a challenge. Go after one of your dreams today. Take a first step. Believe that the God that created you wants you to bring forth beauty. Never stop chasing Grace and Peace, and your dreams.
