Yesterday was one of those days one loves and hates all at the same time. I loved being outside most of the day (once the company was gone). However, my mind was troubled with the issues from our ministries and having no direction in dealing with it. In fact, we have a meeting tomorrow following our church service and we are going to talk through some of these tough situations.
As I finished up the work I wanted to get done outside I went to the mailbox to get the mail and the newspaper. There was a letter from my spiritual mentor. It couldn’t have come at a better time. In it she told me that as she was praying for our Celebrate Recovery ministry God told her to give me a message from Him. He wanted me to know I am His masterpiece. When I read this I thought, “Wow, that is so nice.” My mentor went on to say she wondered why God didn’t just tell me Himself? But, she didn’t want to question God’s leading in her own life.
As I was having my devotions this morning and was journaling, I went back and reread the message from my mentor. I knew why God wanted her to tell me. There are scriptures which call God’s children His masterpiece. I’ve even had them written out so I could begin to believe this is true for me. My belief system has always struggled to believe this as true, for I know my past. However, getting this surprise letter and this message within it was hugely impacting. The fact that God would tell her to give this message to me was powerful in itself. Yesterday was a tough day but God already knew and had prepared a message for me from Him to be delivered just at the right time. What a great God we get to serve!
