My Inner Artist

I was invited into a creative exploration of My Inner Artist by Chirstine Valters Paintner in her book Illuminating the Way.  The idea being that we all have an Inner Artist;  that we were created by The Creator to create.  So it is just a matter of uncovering our inner creativity and letting it speak, or sing, or write, or dance, or paint, etc.  This exercise asks a series of questions about your Inner Artist like “What does your Inner Artist look like?  What does your Inner Artist see?  Where was your Inner Artist born?  What must your Inner Artist speak aloud?  Why does your Inner Artist exist?”  And then you take the answers and weave them into a poem about your Inner Artist.  Here is mine:

My Inner Artist

Fun, adventurous, eclectic me,

voyager, pilgrim, backpack ready

With roots in Maine, and sprouts in Texas,

my heart tethered as I journey to see

God’s beautiful creation,

to stand in awe,

in unity,

in communion

To shed the imposter,

to drop my cloak,

to Become

And then returning to Tell the Story,

the Truths I have learned,

the God I have seen

It is good, it is very good

 

My Prayer

Dear Loving and Faithful God, my Majestic Creator – 

Thank you for my Inner Artist.  I pray that I always have the courage to let her create as you call her to.

In Jesus’ holy name I pray.

Amen.

 

God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good…

~ Genesis 1:31
