Thankful Thursday 1-16-2020

Thankful Thursday meets us on the sixteenth day of the year. Many work with motivated spirits towards the goals and resolutions made just a few days ago fueled by the promise of a fresh, new year. That openness and promise beckons the creative spirit within each of us.

We will choose to express our creativity in a myriad of ways, but promise is our shared commonality. Our experiences, talents, and desire to express marry in a way that is unique to each of us. When we look to God for the direction of that expression, we search for alignment with Him.

That alignment begins when we look to God, see what we have, and use His direction to create. When we click with His Will for our lives, we are “in the zone.” We receive more energy, more motivation, and more joy from our creating. This leads us to do more. We grow.

In this growth, change occurs. And usually, it is hard! Keep looking to God ~ these hard places are where God is working in ways to multiple the goodness in ways we never imagine.

These tough places hold God’s goodness. He’s there with you and He’s ahead of you waiting on the other side of the tough place with the blessing of making it through and all the lessons you’ve learned and the multiplied gifts of your creating. Cheering you on as you create and grow!

Blessings to you!
