Creativity….and Finding Your God-Given Talent

We often hear that a person who is creative is highly developed on the right side of the brain.  An analytical person uses the left side most frequently, so science tells us.  Hopefully, there are some of us who use both sides of the our brains.   We are told that  we use a small percentage of what the brain is capable.   It would be fascinating to know what we really could accomplish…should we put our mind to it!

My talents, or lack of, are definitely in the organizational arena, but I know that I am the happiest when I am creating something special.  This could be in the realm of art, design or simply setting a table for dinner.  Food preparation is also a creative skill that many have developed to our culinary delights.  Some of us dabble in many of these areas, but find that there are a few that give the most pleasure.

What are your skills and talents?   Perhaps you should think seriously about what areas God has given especially to you , that others say they cannot attain.   It would be a shame to waste these or not use them in the way our God, the Creator, wanted for you.   You are a unique individual and in that way, you are quit special with many gifts and talents.

When we think of creativity, we also think of the word “creation” for the word actually means:  “the action or process of bringing something into existence.”   For God Created the World would be one example.

Recently I wrote a blog about a young artist in England who said that his biggest thrill was to actually put something on canvas and know that it is the only one in existence…for only he made it.

Recently, I set aside some of my writing and dived into learning more about video creation.  I know that it is easy these days to whip out a camera and push the record button.  Actually producing a video with special effects and creative skills is a challenge.  Understand me, the video below that I’m sharing, is simply a use of a video producing program that I have been trying to understand.  Hopefully, as time goes on, I will accomplish something more profound.   I would love to learn animation, so I’m open to any suggested programs that some of you think are great for a novice.

In this video, I am showing some of my abstract art work, and also promoting the books that I have written over the last few years.

Thank you for sharing in this beginner’s efforts at video production:
