On Creating

Creating and nurturing life requires vulnerability. Birth is messy. Isn’t it interesting that creating new life is the most vulnerable and messy act imaginable? The same is true of all creating. In fact, there is no creating without risk and risk always involves vulnerability. You cannot create anything without vulnerability and risk.
If you want to create something beautiful with your one and only life, it will require vulnerability and risk of you. Playing it safe and being mess-averse keeps you in control but it won’t birth new creation.
The good news is that when we are vulnerable we can remember that we hold the hand of One who has defeated a far greater foe than any challenge we may face in our creative journeys.
So, what will you co-create with God today?
