The Suncatcher Series Part 2: His
There is a suncatcher that hangs on our back door. This is the door we leave out of every single morning most often to go to school and work for our family. As I leave the house each day, this suncatcher is usually the last thing my eyes look at before shutting and locking the door. It was, of course, painted by my daughter. I believe this one done at a Vacation Bible School or other children's church event, and I am so thankful to have it in our home. When I leave the house every day, I am reminded that I am God's masterpiece.
You are God's masterpiece!
Sure, there are parts of you that are incomplete. You have cracks and open spaces that are your flaws, imperfections, and weaknesses. You also have an incredible brightness to you as well. You are fluorescent with the gifts, talents, and unique attributes God knitted inside of you when you were created.
Each day as we go out into the world, may we remember that we are a masterpiece created by God for incredible purposes. Have confidence as you go about your day, because you belong to God. Live boldly and expectant. Trust that you are in God's hands and God's plan. Take heart, because along the way God is going to fill in those open spaces with color of what He has planned for You. Know that you are the colorful person that you are for a reason, and so live into this each day. Let God use you to carry out God's plan for this world each and every day.
Do not be afraid. Do not get caught up in all your imperfections and inabilities. Just go confidently. You are His masterpiece, so show yourself, made in God's image, to the world! And as you do so, make sure you reflect God's love and grace all along the way!
"For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." (Ephesians 2:10).
