the divine miracle of creation

Creation is a divine miracle
Something from nothing
Magic

The Divine Being Himself is
the only true
Creator

Yet when He created us
He made us
Image-bearers

Like Him in a mysterious way
able to mimic
Creation

We may not be able
to create from
nothing

But we are gifted with
the ability to
make

Making is reminiscent of creation
if not exactly
identical

We can make something that
didn't exist before
Magic

He has invited us to
join in the
creation

It's easy, in our world,
to never make
anything

To have it all made
for us by
strangers

Why choose to stay in
that kind of
world?

Why not make something yourself?
Why not work
magic?

A bolt of fabric and
spool of thread
transformed

Raw materials become real clothing
before your eyes
Miraculous!

Miraculous, not so much because
of what you've
accomplished

Miraculous because it is reminiscent
of the original
Creation

The original divine creation miracle
The impossible made
reality

I encourage you: do not
be content to
consume

Create! Take part in the
divine miracle of
creation

Get to know the joy
your own Creator
experienced

When you take pride in
your work, remember
Him

He takes pride in you
You are His
Workmanship

"For You are his workmanship
created...for good
works"

You were not created to
consume but to
create

Make something beautiful because you
have been made
beautiful

Be like your Divine Father,
be truly His
child

Let it be said that
you are like
Him

Reflecting Him to those who
haven't seen His
face

Refracting one of the many
facets of His
nature

Helping someone see His artistry,
His creativity, His
beauty

Because you cannot make anything
out of nothing
and...

Because He is the Creator
of all things
therefore...

All that you make is
really His own
creation

So in creating and spreading
beauty, art, and
creativity

You are spreading the work
of the Creator
Himself

You are helping his work
to be made
known
