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.

One of my favorite things to do used to be riding every roller-coaster I came across. From Cedar Point and Kings Island in Ohio to Disneyworld in Orlando and Six Flags over Texas, my life was one thrill after the next. So I get what a thrill should feel like. 
But I must admit that I often have to make a concerted effort to thrill on the things the Lord says because sometimes what He requires is exactly opposite of what I want. Fortunately I always arrive at the place, after much chewing, where I realize that He is looking out for me and that even the tough stuff helps to make me a stronger and more devoted follower.
So strap yourself in today and get ready for your own personal thrill ride as you do the things that God is asking of you. Then settle down and chew on it for a bit and see if you don't just always end up agreeing that in just about everything, God knows best!
