Celebrate Your Creative Side!


July 22, 2011 by Heather Harris

I recently read a blog post talking about how most now well-known Christian artists started out creating in obscurity, with barely anyone knowing their names or work, and how if we, as artists are in the same boat, we should be encouraged to keep creating, even if in obscurity.  The goal of creating for any artist should not be about becoming well-known or famous.  It should be about the art of creating itself, the process, and the self-fulfillment that comes along with accomplishing one’s own personal and unique creation.  As Christians, it should also be about reflecting God’s own glorious creative side as well.

So if you are reading this and you are an artist, whether a musician, poet, blogger, painter, designer, etc. I want to encourage you to keep creating, because it’s not about becoming popular or famous. It’s not about whether anyone sees or likes your work.  It’s about your own unique ability to create something of your very own, a piece of yourself that you can share with the world.  Whether or not the world decides to take notice or applaud is irrelevant because you are uniquely you, and that should be celebrated no matter what.

If you have something you want to share with the world, like a blog, a portfolio site, a music site, etc. Please feel free to post the link(s) in the comments section.  I would love to see what unique creations you all have to share 🙂

    Hi, its Philip the caveman returning your comment. Just to say thank you for being so positive – I then turn to this page and see you have a personality flooded in creative ability. I am just getting to grips with it!

    I don’t know how to add you to my (as yet undeveloped) blogroll but I will try to find out and put the link there. The common issues of creativity, depression (though I trust it has gone and will stay away for you) and most importat of all, Christianity – is a powerful combination of life experience that others can learn from.

    So do stay in touch and in the meantime I will explore this blog a little more!

    In HIs grace.
