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.

Rest and Relaxation

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Mat 11:28

If you are weary and overwhelmed, if you are tired and wrung out by life, move closer to the Lord. Your hope and help can be found in Christ. Just don't be looking for that rest He provides to always be a break. It may just be a breakout in a new direction!
