Masterpiece

I’m God’s workmanship.

I belong to the Master Craftsman.

He only creates masterpieces.

And masterpieces take time.

A lifetime plus an instant, as a matter of fact.

Slowly molded and made better over decades by the Master’s hand.

In the best second of that lifetime, this unfinished work will step into eternity.

And in that instant, the masterpiece will be completed.

You are one of God’s masterpieces. A priceless work in progress.

Carefully and lovingly crafted over a lifetime and an instant.

So is every human being who ever lived.

What helps you remember every human being is a masterpiece in progress?

    I was certainly molded slowly and know that God is still working on me! This reminds me of what Ruth Bell Graham said and is on her headstone, “Still under construction” and I am! Thank you for this lovely reminder!! I am wonderfully made a masterpiece!

    • I’m grateful God changes me at a pace that is right for me. He doesn’t wish any man to perish without accepting Him first. Thank you for sharing, Christine!
