Masterpiece

Do you believe that you are a masterpiece? Or do you feel like a failure; a mistake?








When I was younger, I spent a lot of time feeling like I was a mistake. God had made a mistake in creating me.




My mom had gotten pregnant with me. My dad did not want to marry her. He did not want me. He tried to talk her into an abortion, but she refused. After they were married, he got mad at her and threw her down. He was trying to cause a miscarriage. I just knew, in my little girl mind, that I was a mistake.




Then, one day, much further down the road, it just hit me. I survived all of that. God has a purpose for my life. Even though my earthly father did not want me, my heavenly one did. He does not make mistakes.




Ephesians 2:10 NLT 




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.

God created me
I am His masterpiece
He did not make a mistake when He created me
He has given me gifts ( calling through the Spirit ) to help minister to those in need




Am I thankful for who God created me to be?
Do I believe that I am His masterpiece?
Am I focused more on my perceived failings?
Am I using my gifts, the way He intended, to reach those in need?



Prayer: 




Dear Father,  




Thank you for who you have created me to be. I pray that you will help me to remember that I am your masterpiece. Help me to know that you do not make mistakes so I can turn my perceived failings over to you. Help me to use my gifts the way that you intended. In Jesus' name, Amen. 












Focus More On Being Thankful


Believe, Trust, Be Thankful


Count Your Blessings


A Letter To Myself As A Baby
















Do you believe that you are a masterpiece?
Or do you feel like a failure; a mistake?
How can I pray for you today?
If you will allow it, I will be happy to help carry your load.
