Ways to Become a “Masterpiece”
1. Understand we live in a messy world
a. Suffering accelerates spiritual maturity
2. Know that God is never far from us
a. Our disappointments are Appointments
3. Throw a party
a. God is concerned with our character not our comfort
Sometimes God sets us on an unexpected course in which we are asked to trust Him with every detail of the journey
God is worthy to be trusted & worshipped as we respond in obedience
Ephesians 1:5-6 (NLT) – God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love…Psalm 107:21-22
