I am in an art class and the last few weeks the project has been two point perspective. My drawing is basically like a vanishing city landscape. It is one of the more complex projects I guess.
But I did not see it as complex. In fact, I thought I wasn’t doing enough until one of the kids looked over his shoulder, saw my artwork, and said, “How much extra stuff are you adding. That must have been so hard.”
To me it looked like the simplest thing ever. I remembered each tiny thing I did, and it didn’t seem hard. But then I looked at it in a different perspective. “I would never be able to do something like this. How? That’s so hard.”
I realized this is exactly what we do.
God is an artist, and His artwork is unknown to us. It is a work that is not finished, but He knows exactly how it is going to look when He does finish. It is the ultimate masterpiece.
Everyone’s life is the little tiny details. The things that make it so complex, so beautiful, and without them it would be dull.
Don’t question whether you are valuable or not. God chose you to be a part of his masterpiece. He knows everything about you.
And the details are necessary, so don’t think that God doesn’t love you.
To us all we see is the whole masterpiece not the beauty of the details. We don’t think we are important, or that you have to be something out of this world to be important in his masterpiece.
But God plans you and knows you perfectly, so why bother trying to change your life instead of living it to its fullest by serving Jesus.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
