Ever wonder who you are or how you came to be? Do you ever think about what God was thinking when he designed you? Can you think of a time or two that you wished you could have asked God to make some changes before He completed the blueprint of your being? You know…maybe you would have asked him to be taller, to give you a witty sense of humor, to provide you with a body free from disease, or to give you more spunk and courage. Believe it or not, God made you just the way you are on purpose! He created you in His image and designed every fiber of your being to help fulfill his plan for you life and in the lives of those around you. God made no mistakes when He created you!! You were created on purpose for a purpose….and it was predestined and perfect! Take a peak….
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Genesis 1:27 So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them, male and female, He created them.
So next time you question if God could have given you the “skinny” genes, or the blue eyes instead of the brown eyes, or when you wish you could have been designed to not have cancer or a wacky thyroid, just remember….you were created to shine his glory and it is through your life–your appearance, your health, your character, and your intelligence–that God can do the most marvelous things!
God bless you and keep you and may you always know that YOU ARE PERFECT, because GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES!!
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb…Your eyes saw my substance,
being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me,
when as yet there were none of them. ~Psalm 139:13 & 16
You are a jumble of colors
Mixed up in the swirls of life
There is no definitive design
No shape or portrait that can be seen
In the heavens the artist lives
Looking upon His palate of colors
Amazingly He envisions the finished work
The product that is yet to come
He dips His brush delicately
One color at a time
The first strokes are the lines of love
Ever so gently His masterpiece begins
One glance reveals His next colors
Ones of joy and happiness
Their vibrance glides effortlessly
On the canvas of life
To this He adds peace
With a touch of humility
Together they fill the heart
Yet He must add more
The darker colors
Turmoil, long-suffering, and pain
They give His portrait meaning
Adding depth, dimension, and shape
To soften His masterpiece
He brings in a stroke of gentleness
To this He adds ribbons of goodness
Creating a unique work of art
He enhances His creation
Adding colors of hope, grace, and mercy
Then with a splash of faith
The portrait is complete
Looking down at His creation
He has pleasure beyond compare
You, the fruit of His vision
Brought to life by the Creator’s hand
