Spiritual Sunday "Masterpiece"

Charlotte and Ginger host these awesome Spiritual Sundays

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.  ~St. Augustine

You know what's so cool? That somehow...and I'm not sure how....but He's changing and shaping me to be different than I've been. He's taking all those broken pieces....and messes and no matter what happened....what I lived...what I learned...His gentle touch is changing everything...and making it into something good. Somehow He's smoothing out the rough edges....taking out the shame.....scraping off the fears. He's replacing all the despair with joy.....the hopelessness with purpose and the fear with love. I see it now...how each one of us is His masterpiece. 

Pick me up like a paintbrush God....Dip it in the colors of my life. Paint your picture.....

We are His master pieces. Sometimes I don't see how He could make something beautiful out of my life. I am His design and so are you. God bless you!

Sarah, this is such a beautiful post. I love the video. That young woman is incredible.

I forget how wonderfully made we are by God's hands.

I am so very thankful that I belong to Him.

What a cool video, and I love the way you've tied in what you are saying with the painting! Yes, our goal is to become more like Christ as we go through life, to let him change us into something wonderful! We can never be perfect like him, but we can try to get as close as possible! I also like that colorful picture of the petals, is that a cake in the middle? What is that picture?

Hi Sarah,
You truly are an inspiration to me; especially right now. I wish we could sit and talk; I would so love to share with you what I'm going through {a very serious family situation}. Somehow I think you could help me make sense of it all. Thank you for being such an encouragement to many. The Lord bless you!

Christmas blessings,
Sandi
