I love living in East Texas especially during the transition seasons. I love driving along the country roads and watching the landscape sprinkled with trees full of white blossoms. Tonight I felt inspired to capture some of the landscape I see each morning on my commute to work. As I was sketching, smearing/smudging, and sprinkling paint on my inspiration, I could hear these verses. I hope they bless you as much as they did me.
Your imperfections are tools in God’s hands.
Each one of them has a color and a place
To enhance the landscape of your life.
He can use the wounds and disappointments
And He can make a work of art
From the chaos and the strife.
He loves to transform your darkest days
Into something masterful and glorious
That inspire thankfulness and praise.
Your flaws are brush strokes on a canvas
Sent to dwell among creation
To honor the Lord of lords, the King over all nations.
You are His masterpiece, clay in His hands
Everything about you
Can be shaped into something lovely and true.
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
