It has been awhile since my last post. I have taken a break from photography, but would like to continue to share my heart with you. Today I read in my devotional the following scripture that encouraged me. May you be encouraged too.
He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Just think we are essentially a master piece, a great work of art. We are shaped and molded with each life experience and word of God, continually changing into something beautiful. When we surrender the canvas of our life to God the painter, he can create an amazing master piece that will reflect Himself. Have you ever watched an artist in the middle of his creation? You might wonder why he made certain strokes or used certain colors which don't seem to make sense at the time. It is not until the work is complete can we fully reflect and appreciate his creation. So dear friend your canvas is coming along beautifully... allow the master painter to do his great work in you. Others will admire your working canvas and be encouraged about their own.
May we allow Him to create and reflect himself in us.
