Today's Scripture: "He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works." Ps 33:15

Creativity is more genius than having a high IQ. JG


See it.


Live it.

I was told yesterday by someone dear to me that my life has affected his is ways I'll never know. Humbled by the thought, I pondered his words through the day and realized I didn't do anything but edify him, or build him up. I also spoke words to give him confidence (encouragement) and challenged him to try what seemed impossible to him but likely to me. Then offering my help and the link to resources to help him, he then finished his book entitled Before She is Gone, and today people are being blessed in ways we never imagined. It was not my intention, but because of my confidence in him, men are being challenged, wives are finding hope and the church is forever blessed.

One of the most enjoyable experiences I've known is the writing of a book/novel. Able to dream and put my thoughts on paper, I can create people, places and things along with interaction between them all. If you've never considered writing, you ought to at least try it and see if there is creative genius in you trying to get out. But the best way to create something is to find worth in someone else who feels they have none and ask God to stir the juices within them. That's the best story there is.

Pray it.

Thank you, God, for surrounding me with angels I've come to know as friends.
