God’s Paint Brush

Joan Lewis, CND

“We are God's work of art created in Christ Jesus for the good works which God has already designated to make up our way of life.”  Ephesians 2:10) Look around. See for yourself. God is an artist extraordinaire!

Wandering through the forest something delightful is happening all around.

Splashes of color are surrounding me; all is being transformed.          

I stand in the center of these magnificence colors

How am I experiencing my own transformation?

I am the Masterpiece of the Divine Artist.

How am I responding to the Divine strokes of beauty in my life?

God sees within me the hope for perfect fulfillment of all God has create

me to be.

God dips the brush into a bright green and FAITH surrounds my being.

I feel a huge blotch of red that touches my heart with LOVE.

A brilliant golden hue brings HOPE into my life.

How often have I turned aside to avoid the gentle, creative stoke of the Artist?    

When I look at my transition time and consider what God is doing, I tend to forget that God is an artist.  

God is making something beautiful out of me and my life. I may not see the beauty now –

I may not even see any design or evidence that God is working -- but I will recognize it someday.

God's intention for you is to be much more beautiful and glorious

than these multi-colored trees.

And you will be!
