Sometimes I am sure that readers maybe get tired of my musical references, so I am giving everyone fair warning. I heard another great song! Masterpiece by Danny Gokey.
Side note: I hope you took the time to stop and listen to this song and somehow you were moved at what God has done and is doing and will do for you.
Monday Morning Blues
As I heard this song on a Monday morning struggling to get back into the grove after Spring Break, I was reminded of how much God loves me and the work he is continuously doing in and for me. “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21. The song begins almost said with lines like:
Why I’m not fixed by now
Begged and I pleaded
Take this pain but I’m still bleeding
Heart trusts you for certain
Head says it’s not working
I’m stuck here still hurting
But then I hear the chorus and I realize that the struggles of just everyday living can seem like nothing is working, life is hurting, and prayers seem unanswered. The chorus is the answer:
You’re making a masterpiece
You shaping the soul in me
You’re moving where I can’t see
And all I am is in your hands
You’re taking me all apart
Like it was your plan from the start
To finish your work of art for all to see you’re making a masterpiece
God the Artist
This causes me to celebrate the life I know he is still creating for me. His handiwork is still moving in his plan for my life. “All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.” John 1:3. I know that all is well. “To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1. He is the great artist painting his great work. ME!
I can not see the final product. I can not see the one who will stand before God one day, but he does. ” I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20.
Guess I’m your canvas
Beautiful black and blue
Painted in mercy’s hue
I don’t see past this
You see me now
Who I’ll be then
There at the end
Standing there as
Challenge: Stop and see the Masterpiece that God is Creating in You.
