I am instilled with a desire to make, and an even greater desire to make things that matter.
It holds me back and pushes me forward all at once.
Not all things can be great. Brilliant ideas will at times fall flat and fail to touch people. Hard work will simply be work, and the profit of the labor pass by undetected. It is nothing short of difficult and temptation calls to stop.
And yet, there is more–the foundation that this urging comes not simply from my own desire, but purpose: being made in the image of a creative God.
When the making is hard and the goal seems impossible, keep going. There is a making that matters: it speaks truth and points upward to hope; it catches people off guard, telling them that there is more, life was created for meaning; gently illuminating the way to go.
