You are His Masterpiece
We have perfection overload. We expect so much from ourselves and living in this microwave culture, we seem to think that we should be able to take a pill and get instant results. We want it now; actually we wanted it yesterday. Change is a process and most processes take time. God considers us His greatest work of art; that means that we are His masterpieces. And yet we are continually a work in progress. An oxymoron if ever there was one, yet in the great scheme of things, it makes perfect sense. There's no rush to completion, no hurry to finish this race. We can be both at once according to the Master's Plan. He only does good work. No blasphemy intended, but remember, Adam was a draft; Eve was the final plan. Don't be so hard on yourself if you don't get the results you think you should as quickly as you'd like. It took six days for God to create the Earth, heavens, planets, oceans, animals, etc., and then being pleased with His accomplishments, He rested. I have tried to eliminate the word "should" from my vocabulary; I've learned that shoulding all over oneself can get messy! Be you all day, everyday and take your time. Each day is such a gift, but we put so much pressure on ourselves that we seldom take the time to enjoy it. You ARE a masterpiece simply because the Master made you. You ARE a work in progress. You are one productive chick! Remember to rest and be kind to yourself. You deserve it!
