I love January. Partly because it is a return to routine and normalcy. But also because it is a time a decide what new things I want to accomplish. New beginnings contain so much possibility to create ourselves anew and to do things better.
God created the world and all the animals in it. He created leaves that change color. Birds that sing joy and happiness all day. Flowers with heady fragrances and baby soft petals. And He created you and me.
Isaiah 65:18 says: “But be ye glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.”
We are to rejoice in what God has created. He gave us this beautiful earth full of His marvelous creations.
Our Desire to Create
I believe there is a desire in each of us to create. To become like our God when we make something new and beautiful out of raw materials. It can be a song that is written, a picture that is drawn or a kind act where there was none. But the desire to create and become more is in each of us.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf says is so well in this talk he gave.
So welcome to the new year. Welcome to a clean slate and a fresh start. January and 2018 are full of possibility and wonder.
What will you create?
Linking up with Jamie.
