The Truth About You

You are a masterpiece.  How do I know? Because God says so. “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.” (Ephesians 2:10) You may not feel like it at the moment. You may look at your life and see yourself as someone whose life is out of balance, headed in the wrong direction, or even a complete failure. Or perhaps you have a sense of agreement with being a masterpiece, not so much because you truly believe it, but know it’s at least the right thing to believe. Perhaps you’re like  Stuart Smalley, the Saturday Night Live character, looking in the mirror and trying to convince yourself, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and, doggone it, people like me!” Wherever you are, it’s tiring trying to recognize your own priceless value when you don’t feel it inside or see it in how your life.  (from Chapter one of Life Palette)
