LILY Letter 39: The Act of Creation

January 4, 2022

Happy New Years! Welcome to the first week of 2022. Anyone feeling a fresh new start? Or perhaps overwhelmed by the unknown future? Regardless of what the future may hold, what has happened in the past or what we may be feeling now, we can each be intentional this year about what we create in our lives moving forward. We may not control every aspect of our surroundings but we do have a lot of power over what we create to be our daily life experience. Here are some tools and resources to get a strong start along the path of creating more joy in your life.

God's first act of creation was to speak words: "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light" (Genesis 1:1). Each act of Creation thereafter was preceded by the words, "And God said . . . ." (Genesis 1:6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26). Words are the things God used to envision and then create. To create things within our sphere of influence, we create in much the same way so it is important to choose our words with thoughtful intention. "The Power of One Word" (LILY Pod, episode 51) is about choosing a special word each year to focus on and cultivate in our character. What is your word for 2022? If you don't have one yet, ponder it and allow the word to come to you.

Feeling stuck in a rut? Do you have high ambitions but aren't quite sure how to get traction? "Creating from Scratch" (LILY Pod, episode 50) provides inspiration. Creation in life is much like cooking from scratch—we have all the ingredients but it takes wisdom and concerted effort to put them all together in the best possible way. We are often making up the recipe as we go, such is life! This is why life and relationship coaching can be so important and helpful.
