You are a Masterpiece

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,  which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10

Can you wrap your head around this verse? You were made in the image of God, His workmanship. A masterpiece. You have been crafted and created by design. That design was set up before you were born so that you would accept Him as Lord, move towards His purposes, and start doing good things that put a smile on His face. You've had other options. All of us have. But at some point we all realize that someone has their eye on us. Someone is watching over us.

Never Give Up!


Did you know that Sir Winston Churchill took three years to finish the 8th grade because he had trouble learning English?

As he arrived in front of the very appreciative applause of his admirers he walked to the podium; cigar, cane and top hat in tow. He removed the cigar from his mouth, set down his top hat and looked right into the eyes of the audience and said, "never give up!"After several seconds of silence he shouted once again, "never give up!" A profound silence gripped the crowd as he grabbed his hat and cigar and descended from the platform. His speech was over. That six-word exhortation was undoubtedly not the most eloquent speech given at that distinguished university. But I am certain that every person in the audience on that day remembered this one big message for the rest of their lives.
Discouragement has stopped many people from achieving their dreams and fulfilling God's plan for their lives. It often leads to depression and detaching from people and things that could bring life to you.
Maybe today you are feeling discouragements pull and your spirits are down and hopes are fading. Whatever you are going through CAN be gone through! You need to keep going, keep trusting and keep looking forward. Let those words of Sir Winston Churchill echo through your entire being and speak them to yourself...never give up!
