When we look around us we can know without a doubt that God is a creative God! Nature, people, animals! He’s creative! Since we are made in the image of God, we can know without a doubt that we too are made to create!
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” Genesis 1:27
Although God created many things out of nothing.. we of course must use something – He has given us the ability to bring about an amazing creation out of only a few ingredients – such as the potter with the clay, the artist with paints, the cook with foods!
On day 7 we thought about what our creative gifts are…you did didn’t you?
Name a couple..
Do you create something out of nothing? Seemingly nothing that is.
If you were to go to your cupboards, could you create a meal out of what seems like nothing?
I realize that we sort of did this on Day 6 but I’d really like you to go again and look in your cupboard and refrigerator…ask God to give you “new eyes” to “see what He sees. Ask Him to give you some ideas…
Here are some easy examples:
- Do you have flour, yeast, sugar, oil, salt? You can make bread. So what can you do with bread? Oh my….
- Do you have oatmeal, eggs? You can make Baked Oatmeal
- Do you have Cream of Chicken soup? Chicken and rice? Make Baked Chicken and Rice.
While you are poking around in your cupboards, try to think outside the box – what sounds good to YOU!
- A can of chili w/cheese and Fritos on top?
- Rice a Roni and Chicken? (cut up cooked chicken and throw in while rice is cooking )
Don’t be frustrated, this is all about learning and growing NOT perfectionism.
It takes time to learn to be creative – you have to be intentional about it.
If you haven’t already..write down what you have in your cupboards using the FREE PRINTABLE from Day 6…
Cuz you were made for it!
