Decorating for the Glory of God

In the list of spiritual gifts in the Bible, the “gift” of decorating is not mentioned.  It is, however, a gift the God can use!

Decorating is not my gift–I’ll freely admit that.  While I appreciate decorations and look in awe at those to whom decorating comes naturally, I could be content with a “bare bones” event or retreat. While there is a value to simplicity, who who am I to prevent those who want to serve the Lord with their decorating talents?  Decorations truly can reinforce and enhance your event theme.

Use those women who have that gift! Share your vision with them. You may have to pull on the reins a bit, due to budget concerns or time restraints,  but if they are willing to work within the parameters you set, let them go for it! God gave them that creativity to use for His glory.

    My best Friend Marti is so gifted in decorating! I found this in the word about those who were called by called to decorated the Lords temple. He uses the word Artisian it really helped me to value this gift being given by God to fulfill His purposes.
    And each time the Lord by His Holy Spirit fills and uses a lady to be an Artisian servant to decorate a Tea or Retreat – it is very personal and important to the Lord!
    Exodus 31 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 “See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 3 And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, 4 to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze, 5 in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of workmanship.
