Creative expression stirs my soul and my spirit. I love it when people take time to create for no other reason than to bring a snippet of beauty into the world. God, how we need that.
Here’s a great video a friend posted on FB. I was captivated by its form and its flow. Why don’t you take a few minutes to breathe and just look at it to see what it may reveal itself to you?
What do you see? Different expressions touch the heart of different people in different ways.
It is beautiful to me. And, in a world that merchandises beauty for profit and the bottom line, it is refreshing to know that beauty can interject itself into my day and just BE beautiful.
When I look at this video, I am not concerned at how it produces something in me to create material value or enhance my success. I love the fact that by gazing at this particular video, I can allow its creative force to infuse my life with a sense of wonder. And, a smile too – to think that someone actually had this creative idea and then made it work.
If I look once, I see what is revealed. When I look again, my imagination takes flight and I see forms and flow. I am excited about creative expression.
Beauty has no other desired end at times other than to be beautiful and to impart that sense of amazement into others.
As a Christian, Christ is in me and in the power of His Spirit, my spiritual senses are activated to see something supernatural about it, something wonderful about it. How is this bringing glory through my eyes to reveal the glory of Christ in me?
Colors shift from bright red to deep red, forming shadows. At times it seems as if the fabric is in violent confrontation. Then there are moments of blending together in flow.
If I were to prophesy and allow Jesus to speak to me from this, I believe I would hear something like this.
“There are times, My child, when you fight the flow of My Spirit moving in your life. LIfe is dynamic, never static. Life comes with shifting colors and muted shadows, that rise and fall in times and seasons. Yet, I am always with you and never leave you, Ever.
My intent is for you to rise into My flow of life so that I breathe into you. Life is imparted fresh and new to you each and every day. There is beauty when you step back and gaze upon My beauty to see the bigger picture of what I am doing in and through you.
Do not be so introspective that you miss the beauty of divine moments in which I choose to speak to you through the most unusual and diverse ways. Look up, away from that which troubles and distresses. Look up and away and gaze upon Me, upon My beauty to reflect My Glory.”
As you think on Jesus, allow Holy Spirit to speak to you. What do You see and hear? I would love to hear. Comment below.
