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.

Two Catchers Mitts

This week the world lost a precious jewel...Maya Angelou. A teacher, activist and artist, she was a warrior for equality and peace. And she had some amazing quotes. I have always been a big fan of one-liners and short little quips that provoke thought and emotion. One of my favorite ones of hers was reprinted in the USA Today this week. 
"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catchers mitt on both hands; you need to be able to                             throw something back."
I love that! When we spend all of your time catching everything we become fat and lethargic. We were created to move, to flow in the stream of life and to reciprocate acts of kindness. You know "do unto others as you want them to do unto you". We are conduits of blessing and when we "don't throw back" everything gets plugged up.
As you close out this week, don't walk around with two catchers mitts on. You weren't created to catch it all! Someone is depending upon you. You may be their only answer this weekend. Throw something back!
