She said something during the course that I loved, which is the fact that we are each “creators not victims.”
This is very much in line with Erwin McManus’ view of the creativity endowed to every child of God, just by virtue of being created in God’s image. We were all created to create, just as the ultimate Creator. I mean, look at the world around you. So much is man-made and pretty magical. God works through us in our creativity. It’s all for His glory.
I thought of how true her words are, especially if we take Christ as our example. Jesus was someone who sacrificed Himself for the salvation of the world. He was not a victim, but someone who gave Himself up, as the writers of the Gospels and Paul so specifically point out. Jesus was in control and making each choice along the way. What a reminder to us who want to follow in His footsteps. We are not victims but creators, as Ms. Webb has said. A thought to carry with us as we walk to meet every trial, every opportunity and every joy.
