The God Who Created


By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer

Tomorrow is the first day of spring – the season of rebirth, renewal, and resurrection. Of all the seasons, I believe it is the closest to God’s initial creation.

The very first thing the Bible says about God is that He created.

These words explain a lot, not the least of which is God’s unlimited understanding of why we like to imitate His creativity.

We write, paint, sculpt, sing, plant gardens, train animals, teach children, build houses and furniture, make quilts, cakes, and cars.

Some of us bring order out of chaos in closets, checkbooks, filing systems, and data collections.

Some of us save lives.

Others are compelled to share and elaborate on what they’ve discovered.

A few of us like to wrangle words. Others wrangle cattle, horses, or toddlers.

No matter what we do, God’s thumbprint is on our hearts, His quiet empowerment to do what He designed us to do, and to do it the best way we know how.

As we step into spring with new creative ideas, let’s apply the words of Peter, fisherman/water-walker/Jesus-follower:

“…trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.”                               (1 Peter 4:19 NLT)

No such thing as luck, son. Life is what you and God make it. If you let Him.

His grandfather’s advice bounced off the insides of his skull, and not for the first time.
