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.

BUT, the Good News is that in the trouble you can find strength. Jesus is all you need. You and I will become stronger because of Jesus. The difficulties will produce incredible blessings if we simply trust Him and hold on to His Word.

When I see those that have lost their smile or seem to be in a dark place I think about the good that the Lord is producing for them that is going to help them rise in this and through this. I also realize how small some of my troubles are in the grand scheme of things.
What is God making in you and for you? Don't be depressed and don't get discouraged. It doesn't matter how long it lasts: Jesus is enough...He is with you even IN the trouble! Get ready for some of God's glory to outweigh your trouble and overwhelm your heart!
