Use all of the crayons? Yes. God is creating a Masterpiece – it’s you. He is the Master Creator. And we are His Creation. He is creating a beautiful life in you, even if it doesn’t seem like it today. You are His pride and joy. He has your picture on His refrigerator and in His wallet. He brags on you to the Angels in Heaven. And if you are a born again believer, He lives in you to help you in your normal everyday life.
God will use ALL things, the good, the bad, and the ugly, and create something wonderful. Be still my friends, let Him work. Even better, watch Him work in you. It’s exciting! Don’t be discouraged if sometimes life is gray, yellow days are coming. And don’t worry if your crayons are broken either – broken crayons still color!
“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 NLT)
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28 NLT)
