Artisans are Called by Name

What an honor. God called the craftsmen who were to work on the tabernacle and Ark of the Covenant by their names. Names are very important to God, and His names are crucial for us to know His attributes and character. If you call yourself and artist, be proud yet humbled by the gifts and skills that He has deposited in you.

“Then Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the Lord called by name Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and He has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom and skill, with intelligence and understanding, and with knowledge in all [areas of] craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs to work in gold, silver, and bronze, and in the cutting of stones for setting and in the carving of wood, for work in every skilled craft. He has also put in Bezalel’s heart [the willingness] to teach [others the same skills], both he and Oholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. He has filled them with skill to do the work of an engraver, of a designer, and of an embroiderer, in blue, purple, and scarlet fabric, and in fine linen, and of a weaver; makers of every work and embroiderers of [excellent] designs.” — Exodus 35:30-35 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Creativity: Cathartic Exercise

I made another Gourd in between all of the writing, blogging and podcasting I do. It was so fun to carve these waves. I really needed to step away a get creative.

Buried Emotional Toxins

We carry our emotions in every cell of our body. Many of those emotions are negative and destructive. They cause illness and pain mentally, spiritually and physically. And much of this is done subconsciously. So, it’s important that we work to rid ourselves of the toxic emotions that hide deep inside of us.

One way to draw out the emotional toxins and heal from them is to be creative. When we tap into the Creative Spirit, we become free. In that moment of true connection to our Creator we heal, we gain understanding, wisdom and knowledge—and we can be more productive when we return to our task, deadline, etc.

So, make something. Do something. Anything. It doesn’t have to be “good” to be a cathartic exercise. The minute we begin to be creative our atmosphere shifts from overwhelming stress to relaxation. It’s best we just set aside that thing we are stressed about completing (before we can take the time to be creative) and just start. Write, doodle, color, draw, sculpt, make or exercise, be loving to someone, give.

Practice cathartic exercises daily and you’ll be surprised at how much more other stuff you’ll get done.
