Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the Lord; Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven. (Lamentations 3:40, 41 NKJV)
Many times we will try to paint life the way we want it to look but it never becomes the painting that we expect it to be! It ends up looking like a big ole sloppy mess! We find that what we envisioned is not quite in line with what our creator envisioned! And it’s usually because our painting does not include Him in it! We left God out! And without God it won’t be art! It will always look like a sloppy mess! For God is the artist and we are his masterpiece, we must allow Him to paint our life the way He intended it to be! Let’s not get in the way of the master painter! Soften your heart and let Him In! Change your ways and let God design your life! “Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the Lord; Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven.” (Lamentations 3:40, 41 NKJV) “O Lord, You have pleaded the case for my soul; You have redeemed my life.” (Lamentations 3:58 NKJV)
Father God, Master Craftsman, I give you the brush; I will be your canvass! I lift up my heart and hands to you! Change me! Paint my life the way you meant it to be! I surrender to you! Take me, mold me, shape me, do what you wish! Fill me with your Holy Spirit, give me life! Give me the grace that only you can so easily provide, even when I don’t deserve it! Father thank you for all your great gifts! Thank you for pleading my case, thank you for taking my soul! I am forever indebted to you! I trust your vision! I trust the work of your mighty hands! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
