May The Painting Reflect The Painter

(Psalm 8:3-4) When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—the moon and the stars you set in place—what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?

When God created us were were like clay, a motionless glob in need of shaping. We needed a master and God longed to construct a fine masterpiece. The skies were like a blank canvas crying out for a way out of darkness. One breath, one brush stroke, one movement and we came to be. Our craftsman labored joyfully and smiled at the sight of us as He made us in the secret place. Each brush stroke brought life.

Like any artist, God has a special connection to each of His masterpieces because to Him they are perfect and one of a kind. To lose such an intimate relationship would hurt Him because He labored and toiled, cried and laughed, imagined and brought life. His pencil drew and His finger touched each soul.


Each and every one of us was created with passion and love by the hands of God. He enjoyed turning on the biggest lamp in the world to see our faces. Placing His purpose in our hearts, He knit us together. It's about time we recognize Him who loved us first. We were not created to be invisible or overlooked. How long must we hide our lamp beneath our bed? The hour has come for the children of God to wake up from our slumber and shine in our schools, church, and daily lives. It's not  just about shouting the name of Jesus everywhere we go, but about showing the proof of His love in all that we say and do. We can not preach forgiveness when we hold grudges against those who have deeply hurt us. Shine by "loving like you've never been hurt," and by living each day with this amazing mindset: I have Jesus and I get all these things too? Wow! Just like God has given us life we must give life to others...we can only give what we have. Don't have? With all my heart I say, ask and you shall surely receive  Start painting life. Let your life reflect the artist who created you. Hold tight to the word of God and start leaving trails of light everywhere you go. May those who see you see what God intended them to see.
