For one of my classes, we have to write out our own personal creed. This is to help us kind of figure out what we believe and why we believe it. Fleshing out the things we say into small paragraphs and incomplete sentences, basically. Surprisingly, it is greatly helpful. I am not all the way through with my explaining and thinking through, rewriting, deleting, decision making, or finalizing, but what I have down so far I believe is from my true self.
There is much to be learned from an assignment like this, and that is different for each person. We are all different, and that is amazingly beautiful! I know that perhaps, my creed is not exactly complete, or have all the ‘right’ things in it, but it is what I believe. I know that I am not perfect, and that I don’t have everything in a neat little envelope, but the more I think about it, the less I think I want my life to be in a nice little envelope..
I want my life to be an explosion in God’s scrapbook!
