    I like the Passion translation of Psalm 135:17 – “Their lifeless and futile works cannot bring life to them!” I’m not suggesting despising success but as you mentioned, keeping this basic, reconnecting with our Creator and not placing our identity in our works. Great reminder Joel. Thanks as always! Pray that we as creatives, create from a place of our identity in Him and His rest – not from a place of striving.

      That is an interesting translation. The context is clearly speaking of idols, but we can turn anything into an idol and worship it.
      You are right, it is all about our identity in Christ.
