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! So many times we are bombarded by bad news, ambushed by difficulties and adverse circumstances. That is part of life. But when we realize that we w…

Serendipity

Whenever someone asks me what I do I will sometimes say that "I spend most of my time teaching others how to spend theirs." When I wrote my third book “Dreams2Destiny”, I told my personal story of going from one career to another; from the contemporary Christian music world to starting a church and being a pastor. It feels like destiny. I teach about destiny. Some call it purpose. Others may call it fate. Some may look to the stars. As a Christian, I look to the One who made the stars. My destiny is to walk on the path that God has set up for me. It’s what all believers desire. We want to do what we were created to do. The word “destination” is derived from it. We want to be where we are supposed to be. 
One of my favorite movies is called “Serendipity”. Serendipity means "the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for." I call it destiny. Some call serendipity "luck" or fate. They say that sometimes things just happen. Let me give you a couple of serendipitous things. 
It was the Native Americans that when needing water, tapped into a maple tree and made the first maple syrup as they boiled off the sap. Another moment of serendipity came when Mr. George Ballas was in his car at the car wash and noticed the strings of brushes cleaning his car. He looked at them on the rotating brushes and an idea "popped" into his head. I wonder if a nylon cord, spinning around at a very high speed, could trim the grass and trees around the house. That's right, the Weedeater was born!These valuable things came without intense pursuit.
God is the master of serendipity. He created it. He embodies it! In fact the bible says that he is able to give to us "exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask or think."(imagine) I personally believe that things don't just happen. God is always orchestrating our steps. God loves to surprise us too!
I want you to imagine something today. I want you to see the Grand Designer, the Creator of Serendipity getting ready to "surprise" you right now! You are going to find some valuable and agreeable situations coming your way that you never even looked for! Dreams really can come true! Are you ready to have the Lord turn your dreams2destiny?
