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. Your life has purpose: to bring His glory into the lives of those that you are in fellowship with. As you build your relationship with Him, you will begin to truly enjoy all that comes with walking it out. Blessings will overtake you! Favor will surround you!

Overwhelmed

Habakkuk 1:2-4 How long, O Lord, must I call for help? But you do not listen! “Violence is everywhere!” I cry,but you do not come to save. Must I forever see these evil deeds? Why must I watch all this misery? Wherever I look,I see destruction and violence. I am surrounded by people who love to argue and fight. The law has become paralyzed,and there is no justice in the courts.The wicked far outnumber the righteous,so that justice has become perverted.

Do you ever complain? Have you ever spent part of your day whining about the way that your life was going? As I read the words of this scripture today I began to see a bit if myself in these words.

I have moments where I wonder why terrible things are happening and yes, I may even ask God if He is still there! I whine about aches and pains, lack of what I want and I even complain about the injustices in this life. I wonder why God won't just come and save me. Is He even listening?

Jesus never said that the world would be fair. He never said that times would not be tough. He only reminded us that He would always be there and He would never leave. Over and over again he said, don't be afraid.

Take a moment today and check out your own complaint department. Are you whining or winning in your life? Life isn't fair. Good people do bad things. Bad people do worse things. But God is always bigger than any trouble that you face! Turn your overwhelmed life into an overcoming one!
