For we are God’s workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10 NIV
Have you ever felt like a failure? Or has someone told you that you are a mistake? Did you know that this is not the truth? In fact, you are a work of art. You are a masterpiece created for a specific reason, which God has already prepared especially for you. Whether you believe it or not, there is a reason, a wonderful reason why you were given life. The fun and challenge in life is discovering that reason. This discovery can be found by spending quiet time with God each day and reading His Word, which was written to you in love. As you draw closer to Him, His Word will direct your path. Then before you know it, you will be living a life not of your own making, but one pleasing to God which will give you lasting fulfillment and contentment. For you are God’s workmanship.
