You’re poetry.

Paul says, ‘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 – https://bit.ly/3weEtXy)

The Greek word for masterpiece is ‘poiema’. We get our word ‘poem’ from that.

When God looks at you, He sees a poem He wrote. Let me geek out for just a moment: poetry is the purest form of literature. A poem has perfect structure and rhythm. Every word is carefully chosen and placed, and not a single word is wasted. A poem carries significant meaning and conveys a powerful message.

That’s YOU, in the eyes of your Creator and Father!

What He sees.

When Samuel was choosing a king, God reminded him, ‘Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’ (1 Samuel 16:7 – https://bit.ly/3hHND9C)

As you walk along the path God has you on today, pray for divine x-ray vision: to see things the way God sees them. Ask Him to show you how He sees the people around you – the ones you like, and the ones that irritate you.

And ask Him to show you how He sees YOU.
It’ll make your day!

NOT invisible.

Do you ever feel invisible?
Like, no one seems to notice you?
Or like, you could run away, and no one would even send out a search party?

I pray the Holy Spirit would comfort you today by surrounding you with the love of good, gracious people. And I pray you’d remember this incredible truth: you are never invisible to the God who holds the universe, and you, in His hand.

The psalmist says, ‘If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.’ Psalm 139:9-10 (https://bit.ly/3jSnRlE)

Tired?

Matthew 11:28-30 (https://bit.ly/3vjDYLv)

There’s so much drama going on in the world today! It’s difficult to have hope for tomorrow when there is just so much negativity everywhere around us. I mean, in school we HAVE to work hard to get good grades and we aim to build good – solid friendships.

But in reality, we’re actually anxious about tomorrow and we’re not even sure about our own future in this world.

Jesus reminds us that we should focus more on spending time with Him, telling Him about our worries and disappointments but also about our hopes and dreams for tomorrow.
