How Your Current Crisis Can Boost Creativity
The challenges we face culturally, become the soil for the stories and art which will be embraced.
The task before us is not to wait and complain. We must speak into the darkness, tearing a corner off of that darkness each day. For we know that chaos is not the end. We know our King is still on the throne. He has allowed this for a reason, but he will not let these troubles have the last word. Are you asking yourself and asking your Father in Heaven, “What is my role in this?” or “How can my creativity bring hope, healing, and inspiration for those in this crisis?”
A Prayer for Creatives During A Crisis: [from the video]
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for already giving us the grace to get through the day.
Thank you for already giving us the creativity to adapt to these challenges.
Thank you as creatives you have given us a voice to bring beauty from this chaos.
Help us to trust in your loving care.
Help us not to become anxious, but to place our trust in you.
Help us to look to you for our security, not our circumstances.
Have mercy upon us, our neighbors, and our world.
May we be your hands and feet, blessing others and reaching out in love.
We pray this to the God of all Comfort,
In the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
