When I found this dress while rummaging through a thrift store, I knew within seconds what the after would look like, and that it was going to win a thrift competition I was about to enter. At times we might receive a revelation of what's to come and my advice to myself and to others is, do not doubt yourself. Do not doubt the feeling you just had. Believe in it. And act with that belief. I have felt revelations like this at times in my life where it was immediately replaced with self doubt and unbelief. Things are accomplished with faith, never with doubt. .
"Don't we want our lives to be lovely & creative & productive & meaningful? Don't we want to offer exquisite, sacred things to the world? This draw toward creation is important, worthy of our time, attention & nurture. I sincerely believe we are bringing forth of beauty... This bears out in one thousand different ways: we write, sculpt, paint, speak, dance, craft, film, design, photograph, draw, bring order, beautify, garden, innovate, produce, cook, invent, fashion, sing, compose, imagine... That thing in you that wants to make something beautiful? It is holy... Create what only you can; there is no one else who can do exactly what you do in the way you do it... We need you. We need your stories & craftsmanship & gifts & courage. We need brave, committed artists to decorate this hurting world with loveliness, to partner with God in making beautiful things." -Jen Hatmaker
How do you create?
