As I sit here, watching the candle flicker, drinking a tasty cup of coffee, reading an inspiring book (other than thinking that I couldn’t remember the last time I had any alone time), I was thinking about my atmosphere and how warm and inviting it was.
Everything around me provoked creativity. From the natural wooden floors, up the walls to the beautiful stained-glass art, from the naturalista at the front door to the bench-like tables and chairs; I could feel the creative juices starting to flow. The atmosphere was so peaceful. It’s in this type of environment that I can pray and listen; as I wait for God to download something beautiful in my ear.
It’s interesting how just changing your atmosphere can rejuvenate your spirit, revive gifts; revive you, or catapult your creativity to another level.
(Side note: that could also mean changing who you choose to fellowship with. Are they depleting or sowing into your life?). Think about it. But I digress.
So can you imagine the revelation, the creativity, the transformation that could manifest if we were consistent in giving God our undivided attention; taking time to get into a quiet place and have communion with Him?
He is our Creator. The One who created us with purpose, for a purpose. How are we to know what that purpose is or know which way to go, etc., if we don’t spend time with the One who created us? He is the One who endowed us with our gifts.
