We began with a roll of plastic and ended with a set design.
After several hours of measuring and cutting and connecting we completed our set design. As we began it looked like absolutely nothing more than a piece of plastic that you would use to cover a wood pile or a carpeted floor before painting. Even after I connected each piece together with zip ties and carried it to the stage it looked pathetic - for a moment I thought it was hopeless. Then as my hubby began to hang it and the colored lights began to hit the squares, it became a design. It became the backdrop for the message to go out for the next four weekends!
Sometimes to create all you need to do is begin.
When I create I am in my most vulnerable place. Every time I begin, I risk failure. But when God takes a simple plan or thought and helps it become a completed project it is more fulfilling than I can possibly describe.
I encourage you today to step out of your comfort zone - volunteer in an area that you know God gifted you in! Join me in risking failure - nothing matters in this life except to live for Him! So what if we goof up sometimes - it's better than keeping all He has given us for ourselves.
