As I sit in a new coffee shop, twiddling my thumbs and hoping inspiration will strike and that all my travel plans won’t still be cancelled in 2021, and that I can work it out to be a freelancer, I find myself just grateful for a chance to be out. A chance to explore a new part of the place I live which is vastly more beautiful than one can describe over a few typed words on a screen.
After this year, any moment in a new place is a gift.
This world is filled with people and places that have a story and a purpose and a drive to breathe in creativity and exhale new inventions and ideas. Some people would want to attribute that kind of colorful drive to a cosmic power of weird name and description, but it can only be from a divine Creator who has so much more thought capacity and room for creative inspiration than we know. I think he has this beautiful bend in his spirit to show us how much bigger this whole life is than we know.
You see, the thing about the Creator is that he is personal, and he wants relationship with us. Can you even fathom that?
An all-powerful, divine being who created something from nothing and knows every star by name wants to know ME?
And yet, I secretly wish to know him, too. Despite my fears of what might happen, I want to know him more.
Maybe that’s why I seek out new places to pen my thoughts. I find that he meets me in these moments in a way that I can’t connect to anywhere else. There’s always a space for me to listen because I’ve chosen to quiet myself. I’ve chosen to simply BE.
I’m grateful for his light and creativity. For his unending love. For the truth he brings to my heart. I pray you’ll know him, too.
