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!

Value Others

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.
Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, (Philippians 2:3) 

It took many years for me to realize one of the most amazing principles in the Word of God. It seems to me that we are programmed within to be successful and that this desire to win often takes us in the wrong direction. For many years I wanted to get ahead of others, take care of myself and be certain that in this dog eat dog world, I would be the top dog. Then one day, after receiving Christ, I began to see that He offered another way to succeed. 
The simple principle was that if I would value others first, the Lord would value me and exalt me in the process. Humility always brought me right to where I needed to be! When I humbled myself, God would lift me up. Selfish ambition will wear you out. It will bring you nothing but anger, bitterness and envy. Always trying(in our own power) to be at the top is exhausting. 
It's time to give way to the Lord and let Him take charge. Exchange your power for His. Start today by taking care of others first. God will always take care of you!
