I love lists. Have I said that already? This relates to creativity.
My pastor talks about “spiritual and physical realities,” things we need to invest time in each day. This is how I have come to see it in my life.
Relationship with God based on grace through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross
Daily communion with God through prayer and meditation on Bible
Spiritual food- Bible study, slightly different from the above
Life in a community of other Christians
Physical Realities: (These have impact on mental and spiritual health but may be suspended in times of extreme need: crisis, persecution, war, famine. God’s grace, in these times is sufficient!)
Food (hopefully healthy)
I want to add an Additional Reality for some people or maybe for all:
Creativity- I believe that the desire to create is God given and stems from being made in His image. Maybe this fits under the topic of Meaningful Work.
Disclaimer: I would be lying if I implied that I do all the above faithfully every day! But I notice the lack and it affects my attitude and can result in a downward spiral until I change some priorities!
