It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God. —Mary Daly—
God’s presence is within us, now and always, even though we feel alone, alienated, scared, and forgotten
much of the time. We often overlook God’s presence because we don’t recognize it. Our talents,
our desires, and our pursuits are the evidence–all the evidence we’ll ever need once we understand it–that
God is present within and about us all the time.
The creative potential goes unrealized among so many of us, perhaps because we have a rigid definition of what
creativity is. We are creative. We are all, each of us, creative. We must be because God’s presence is here now. When we choose to let it guide us, we’ll be able to offer our own unique gifts to the world of friends around us. Encouraging creativity, our own and someone else’s, may mean breaking old habits. It surely does mean stepping out of our own way. It also means giving ourselves fully to the experience of the moment and trusting that God’s presence will prompt the deliverance of our special gift.
In the moment lives God within us. In the moment I am creative, blessed with gifts like no other. I will stay in the moment and offer them, guided by the God within.
