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.

It seems I want to create the outcome, to manage it, perhaps even predict it. But outcomes are not predictable and things do not turn out like you want them all the time. However, when you live a life that follows the Lord and leans upon His understanding, no matter what the journey and the course, the outcome will be His.
Its time to learn to enjoy the rhythm of life lived close to Jesus. What beat is your life drumming to? Can you jump when He says jump? Can you rest when time has been given to you to relax? Leave outcomes to the Lord. It's the only way things will come out right!
