For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Ephesians 2:10 NLT
I sat in the light of the morning sunrise, coffee in hand, and asked Father God,
What is on your heart today?
"YOU are my pearl of great price (Matthew 13:46). Would I bury you in a field? Would I entrust you to another's care when I am the Master Jeweler?
I would take my treasure to the Studio. I would CLEAN it, inspecting it for flaws and inclusions.
Some inclusions I leave for character and uniqueness. There is no one like you. Anything that prevents my light from reflecting your rainbow color from dancing, I cut off and discard.
Submit yourself to this process, and your true BEAUTY will be revealed. Only when the cuts are made, the edges smoothed, and the final finish complete will you be ready to set.
THEN will I promote you. Then will I set you on a pedestal. Then will I shine my glory to display my beauty for all to see.
This will be your big reveal.
It is coming, but it is not about you. Can a diamond create itself from coal? Can it make its own masterful facets? Can it set itself? It can only SUBMIT to the process and trust the MASTER.
Pain has a Purpose.
Loss won't make you Less.
Heartbreak will bring Healing.
Fire will Reveal the Rainbow.
Trust me, as I make all things new.
Trust me, as I create my masterpiece out of the rough of your life."
