The Masterpiece of You

10 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.

I lay my head down on the desk and I weep.

I am listening to a song by Stephen Curtis Chapman I have never heard before.

The lyrics touch me deep inside my heart.

It is from an album I added to my playlist. The Glorious Unfolding.

It begins to play as I pick up a piece of art given to me by some amazing women I met in an upscale resale store in Tennessee. (More on that later:))

I never expected that I would meet them let alone learn how remarkable they are and just how great their story was or how Jesus was unfolding a glorious ministry in their lives that was touching so many others.

That would touch even me.  A girl from central Virginia.

I listened to the lyrics of the song as I remembered them telling us (beautiful writer friends I got to meet that weekend face to face too) how important our story was, and how important using our voice was in the world.

Friends, we are masterpieces. You are a masterpiece. To be revealed in the most amazing glorious unfolding Jesus story.

[Tweet “Friends, we are masterpieces. You are a masterpiece. To be revealed in the most amazing glorious unfolding Jesus story.”]

Listen to these lyrics. I recommend a tissue. Let them sink in deep because they speak truth.

There is only one and only you.

  1. Such a beautiful reminder that we are wonderfully made!(Psalm 139:14) Your beauty shines in your words my friend. In the telling of your own story there will be many women for whom the words ‘me too’ will resonate and more hearts will be opened to the beauty of who God, in Christ, created them to be.
    I am so thankful that God brought us together that weekend to meet IRL! You are a treasure!
    blessings,
    Gay
