What is creativity?
- the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work. (Google Dictionary)
- a phenomenon whereby something somehow new and somehow valuable is formed. The created item may be intangible or a physical object. (Wikipedia)
- the act of creating something out of nothing (see below)
“Creatio ex nihilo” is the Latin phrase from Genesis connoting God’s labors in creating heaven and earth from the void.
Spanish speakers use the phrase “de la nada,” invoking the idea of generating something from nothing.
The origin of the word is from the Latin (Online Etymology Dictionary).
I believe, that like The Bible, all creativity is God breathed & a true gift to the person, who is privileged to be used by God for this purpose.
So the next time you’re feeling creative, stop & thank your Creator.

I think of creativity as “divine sparks.” Not to sound idolatrous, but it’s like a muse comes and drops a ball of dough in my lap and I start making it into a pizza. God provides all the ingredients; the toughest job is to keep up. Blessings.
