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.
God creates life and he has a unique plan of reach of us. The dictionary says this word means a work of outstanding artistry, skill or workmanship.
Each of us are different and that is God's plan. The joy that fills my soul when I see this little face in the picture above. She is my granddaughter and the answers to many prayers. I know her story before she was born. I see how her life is a true miracle. My daughter prayed for years to have a baby girl and here she is. We don't know the plan God has for her life, but God does. Jeremiah 29:11 comes true for each of us. A plan, a promise and a future. Each us our God's masterpiece too.
As I read the Bible, I see how God uses a baby's life. Baby Jesus grew up to follow the plan for his life. Baby Moses grew up to follow the plan for his life. Each of us was born to follow to plan for our lives. Babies grow into adults and we know that our lives are purposed for greatness. We might not carry a big title of life, but we do carry a big responsibilities from the Lord. Our lives must be examples and to teach others about a love that remains the same. God's love is amazing and his forgiving power is real.
WHAT IS LIFE TO YOU?
Life to me is simple. I can wake up every day to see a new day. Giving thanks for health, strength, wisdom, friendships and family-ships. I can see where God has brought me from in life. Letting go of anger of overs death of loved ones and I just didn't understand at 18 years old. I had a choice then to become a bitter person and I just didn't want to live in anger. I had to purpose right thoughts and know that each of us have a time to be born and a time to die. I now have grandchildren that I adore. Each of them hold my heart and time with them is priceless. I love to talk about them and take pictures. I might take too many pictures but I seriously love to look at the pictures of fun memories with them. God has blessed me far more than I ever thought in life.
As a kid, we have hopes, dreams and when we grow up statements happen. I wanted to grow up to teach people to be KIND. That was the word that sticks in my mind. I was bullied and even teased as a kid. It was that day in my bedroom when I talked to stuff animals about growing up to be a great person. I guess I spoke life into me that day. I didn't like being a kid and wanted to teach adults how to treat kids too. I can look at my life today and see that I have accomplished that dream as an adult. I value life and I value that God loves me. I want to share that love with others. I want you to know that you can do anything you put your mind too in life. God woke you up and wants you to complete the plan for your life too. I'm not done, I have only just begun teaching and leading others. I love helping people and that's part of who I am.
ONE LIFE ~
A baby needs an adult to help them. We must remember we don't only take care of this lives, but we must purpose their souls too. Teaching and leading by example of loving God. Showing them the right way of life and teaching to be KIND to others. I hope you hear my heart today, never take life for granted. Suddenly things can happen and it changes our lives. My daughter had a brain bleed 5 days after she had this precious baby in the picture. I suddenly stood at a door holding a 5 day old baby as I watched her mommy get put into an ambulance. Baby Averie has three step brothers and one of them said, "Is Tracy going to die". It was that moment that changed my life. I got a phone call from her husband that said she was being air lifted to Stanford with a life threatening thing. I prayed this: "God, I can not help my daughter but I ask you to not take her life".
I can fast forward her story 7 months. She is back to work and doing great. God answered my prayers in not taking her life and I will forever be grateful. I felt to share this today with you and anything we face can be scary. It can brings us to our knees in prayer and this shows the power of prayer. God does continue to do miracles in life and I have many to share. I know that somethings don't get answered the way we think and we might see later why. We might never see an answer of why but continue to trust the Lord with all our hearts. Our own examples helps others to see how God works in life. Life continues and we should give thanks daily for all we do have in life.
I also thank God for your life. Yes, you the reader of my blog. I might not know your name or who are you but God does. Suddenly things happen and God is always there! I do pray daily for you, your family and friends. Such a major connect in God and I am grateful to pass my blog on too. God continues to guide our lives if we allow him. Nothing is too big for him. Purpose this a good day and count some blessings of a new day.
