Ephesians 2:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
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.
Each of us have a day, time and place we were born. Yet the Bible speaks of us being a masterpiece. A true design made by God and molded into his image. It all begin before our birth-day.
Is a story of a bullied little girl changing into a princess of being different. She pressed through her step mom's anger toward her and those mean step sisters. The step mom wanted her to be hid away and not treated like her own daughters. But there was something inside Cinderella. She could not just sit by and watch her life be taken away from her. She saw an opportunity to join in a town party and didn't know to make that happen. But along came a fairy God mother and it changed her world.
I wonder how many of us could relate to Cinderella's story. We don't view ourselves as a princess or even a prince at times. We might not take that opportunity to join into a party or open door of new beginnings. I would like to relate the Cinderella story to God's plan for our lives. Jeremiah 29:11 how strong and true which states: a plan, a promise and a future.
VIEW IT CLEAR ~
Live by faith, walk by God's grace and mercy. Be a life that is changed and can share that change with others. God has clearly made us to stand up and stand other to others. We must be bold in this life and not let anyone tell us we are not good enough. After all ~ Ephesians 2:10 New Living Translation (NLT)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 was a kid who had a dream of being a good mom. Planning that my life would someday teach others to be kind. The word kind has gone a long way in my life. I thank God for his love and forgiving power toward me. I feel as if I had the glass slipper like Cinderella and God put my life together. Each step leads to another and I count it all joy. Dreams and hopes do come true when we believe.
Today marks my Granddaughter's (Brookley) 6th Birthday. The excitement that fill her little heart about today. Going to sleep last night full of joy. Looking forward to her BIRTH ~ DAY. Each year and each numbers adds to our joys, sorrow and new beginnings of life. Things change and yet stays the same. I'm excited for her and love that I am called Grammie in her life. What a true blessing as a birth comes into our lives. A day that world was changed and joy. She loves playing Cinderella and the hope of a prince in her life. She is only 6 years old and I see the little girl who dreams big. She also loves going to church to help out and learn about Jesus.
We might not always see ourselves as special or wanted in life, but you my friend are a masterpiece made by God and designed for purpose! Never doubt the power of God and know that free will takes us up roads of goodness and down roads of defeat.
God has given us each a BIRTH and each of us day that our lives were changed by his holy power. HE loved us greatly and there is a purpose of your life. After all, someone is watching your life and may find it amazing. Move into the word of God and rest in his plan for your life. Much easier said than done at times. Go today in peace and thanksgiving.
Happy 6th Birthday to our princess Brookley Faith. Her mother Ashley, almost lost her life giving birth to Brookley. Brookley almost didn't make it too, but God had a plan. A plan bigger than we can imagine. I'm happy that their lives are here and I totally see the importance of ONE life. Whatever you face today, face it with hope and dreams that can come true. In asking God of help, he helps in ways we can not imagine and opens new doors. Change is not alway easy but necessary. Your birth was purpose by God and I'm so glad you are reading my blog. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
