In Friday's post I asserted that creativity is as much the artist's responsibility to stir up as it is God's divine gift to impart.
"You received a gift from God when I placed my hands on you [to ordain you]. Now I'm reminding you to fan that gift into flames." ~ 2 Timothy 1:6 (GWT)
I think the impartation can sit there unused. Uninspired, not on His part but ours.
One of my favorite female wordsmiths Shauna Neiquist agrees. She said: "I believe that inspiration is something that we create, something that we’re responsible for. I don’t believe in waiting for it to show up. I believe that being an artist means you live a life of imagination and inspiration, instead of sitting down at your laptop expecting it to show up at just the moment you need it."
Do you agree with Shauna?
What are you doing to nurture your gifts?
