CALLED TO CREATE

When God first showed me these words, “Called to Create”, I didn’t quite understand what that meant.

I know we all create things and the world is full of creation formed through many hands and those hands meet somewhere in the middle of the chaos we call “our lives.”

These words took me on a journey of searching “What am I called to Create?” “What is my calling, Lord?”

I’ve spent a big part of my life searching for the answer to this question, always wondering and pondering my reason for being here. I was afraid I would go my whole life and die never knowing the answer.

Then one day through a very rough marriage-struggle (soon to be shared with you) God told me.

you were created in love. to love. and to be loved. go out in to the world and love people.

Well that seemed simple enough. God was telling me why I was created, to love Him and others. I am created in His image, for Him. That meant that God had a purpose, a calling He wanted me to do. I’m not here by mistake and neither are you. Every baby born has been planned by God. No one is a mistake.

“FOR YOU FORMED MY INWARD PARTS; YOU KNITTED ME TOGETHER IN MY MOTHER'S WOMB. I PRAISE

YOU , FOR I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE. WONDERFUL OUR YOUR WORKS; MY SOUL

KNOWS IT VERY WELL. MY FRAME WAS NOT HIDDEN FROM YOU, WHEN I WAS BEING MADE IN SECRET,

INTRICATELY WOVEN IN THE DEPTHS OF THE EARTH. YOUR EYES SAW MY UNFORMED SUBSTANCE; IN

YOUR BOOK WERE WRITTEN, EVERY ONE OF THEM. THE DAYS THAT WERE FORMED FOR ME,

WHEN AS YET THERE WERE NONE OF THEM."

Psalm 139:13-16

It was going to take going through the biggest trial of my life and surrendering my own plans for my life to get my attention of God’s calling on my life. The suffering I endured would give way to grace and healing of my marriage and set me on the path He wanted me to travel.
