You are God’s Masterpiece!
Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you. Most days “masterpiece” is hardly the way I’d describe myself either!
Instead, every tiny flaw seems to jump out at me. I want to nit-pick the imperfections and ugly, scarred areas.
My soul becomes weary from pushing on through the struggles, and I want to run away from my troubles and not let them “perfect” me.
Thank goodness that God sees through the nastiness of our world (both our difficult circumstances and our selfish desires) and somehow, someway transforms them into a breathtaking cascade of His glory.
Yes, sometimes we can step back and look beyond the everyday trials and see the masterpiece slowly taking shape. And that makes all the uncomfortable shaping worth it.
