I did something today that I normally don't do. I went to a holiday craft show. I am not a knick-knacky kind of person nor am I a big holiday decorator. I wondered the aisles and saw incredible transformations. Barn wood that became signs and serving trays. Beautiful tea cup bird feeders. Antique serving utensils. Mason jars, oh what you can do with a simple mason jar.
In Genisis, God said "Let us make man in Our image." God is THE creator so since we are made in His image, we should be creative also. I look at a mason jar and see, well a mason jar. Not this adorable, rustic kleenex holder. Barn wood is just wood but now it is a beautiful board to hang my pictures on. Booth after booth, the artists displayed their creativity. Booth after booth, I thought, "I never would have seen that in that."
I am so thankful that God sees the finished "product" in me before He starts. God saw each of us before He said "Let there be light." Jesus said in 2 Cor 5:17 " Therfore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away: behold all things have become new."
I think that makes me like a piece of barn wood in the hands of my Creator. I am excited to see the finished work.
Craft on God! Craft on!
