Walt Disney once claimed that Disneyland would never be completed. He said, "It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." Being a creator myself, I know exactly what he meant. I am constantly thinking about my next story. My old stories. My website. My blog. What can I do to improve on what I've already done? And what's the next step?
I don't want to think what the world would be like without imagination. It's a horrible thought. God has given us a small portion of His amazing creative power, and for that, I am most thankful!
But imagination cannot mix with perfection. At least not in human terms. Perhaps that is the culmination of God. He IS imagination and perfection in One. The things He makes are perfect with no room for improvement. James 1:17 tells us, "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." With my finite mind, I may strive for perfection in my work, but there's still lots of room for improvement. I am a shifting shadow.
I know my work will never be perfect. And I'm okay with that. What's more important is that it leads people to the Perfect One. That people see God in what I have to share. In that way, it becomes perfect. It becomes a witness and a testament to His faithfulness. I couldn't ask for anything more. Soli Deo Gloria.
