This is a quote from Jack White (White Stripes front man, troubadour, musical genius.)
I agree with him.
To that, I would add what my friend Thad told me once. He said:
“The best albums are received, not written. They’re gifts you get and then share with other people. You can often hear the difference on someone’s second album. Their first album was a creative gift from God and then on the second one they tried in their own power to repeat it. And they grinded it out and it’s nowhere near as beautiful.”
I think that’s true of books and blogs and conversations and life in general. I think amazing things happen when God is in the room. The best things I’ve ever written, I don’t remember writing. I can’t take credit for them because I don’t feel like I created them; I feel like I received them.
What about you? How do you think God shows up in creativity?
