This is my very first blog post on the blog hop! I am so excited to join this fun, awesome group!
Now to the topic of my post! 🙂
I have decided to do verse mapping for the blog this week. This verse has really caught my attention and has spoken to me all week. It is amazing to me how even in the midst of my messy life, God still calls me His masterpiece. I looked up the definition of masterpiece on dictionary.com, and according to the site, “masterpiece” is defined as “a persons greatest piece of work.”
I was speechless. After all the things I have done in my life, God still calls me His “greatest piece of work”. I praise God for His unconditional love for me!
The last part of the verse says “so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” To me, this means that I have always been on Gods mind. He has planned a special life and work just for me! Through His Son Jesus, I have been made new, and will be thoroughly equipped for these good things!
Replace the “we” and “us” with your name and “she” like I did above. Make this verse personal for you. Remember this truth. Hide it in your heart. How precious it is that He; the Father of the universe, the God who placed the stars in the sky and knows them by name, the God who knows exactly how many hairs is on our heads, the God who knows our hearts, calls us His greatest piece of work! Hallelujah!
Father, thank you for calling me Your masterpiece, Your greatest piece of work. Although I can be really messy at times, I am comforted by this truth. Thank You for Your self-less sacrifice of your Son so I, a messy sinner, can be made new thru Him and can live Your good and perfect will and do the good things You have planned for me. In my messiness, You still call me Your masterpiece…I am in awe of Your mercy and Your grace every day. Thank You so much for this scripture and the reassurance it gives me to know that no matter how messy I feel, I can rest in the truth that You think I am Your greatest piece of work. Your masterpiece. I love You. Amen!
