Sharing the Beauty {Creative God Series}

Last one, people!

We've talked about all these great things...What a creative God we have, what a beautiful world we live in, and how to be joyful in our creativity. But really what good is it, if we don't share it!

I'm hoping that you realize that is what I'm doing here...with this little blog. That I want to share with you the beauty that God is creating in my life. That I might be reminded not to take it for granted, like I so often do. That it truly is the little things that matter.

Romans 12:1-2
 1-2 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. 
Side Note: That's the Message Bible again, I guess I'm going to have to buy one. I've had that verse memorized in the King James version for a long time and it was like reading a new verse!

Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him.
Did you read that? Oh, how He works. Yesterday, I gave a little devotional at MOPS. I talked about the One Thousand Gifts book. How I so want a bigger, better house, but evidently God is teaching me patience. An outlet burnt up, the sink is leaking, I have no closets...and the list goes on and on. But if I can't be grateful for this little house, how am I going to be grateful for a big one? If I don't know what it is to do without, how will I ever appreciate it when I do get it? If I can't keep this one clean...let's just stop right there;)
I'm going to use my chores as an offering, use my talents as an offering. It says right up there in that verse that that is the best thing that we can do for Him. Quit worrying about our peers, and quickly respond to Him. 
I hope that this little series has been a blessing for you! I know that it has shown me a lot more that what I bargained for! 
He works like that a lot, doesn't He?
