Masterpiece in the Making

Do ever feel lost in the middle of your own life?

Maybe you imagined you’d have a career you loved, financial security, or a marriage made in heaven. Maybe you thought you’d have a house that felt like home, a child who brought you joy, or a deep solid faith you could stand on. Maybe you’re tired of waiting on a dream that seems overdue. Maybe you’ve giving up on the idea that your life can be a masterpiece.

Many women have experienced a moment where, after glancing in the mirror, she realizes she doesn’t recognize the girl staring back at her. But she wants to believe there’s more so she’s faced with a choice. She can do nothing and continue in disappointment, shame, or regret, or she can recalibrate and believe that her life is a work of art because God’s Word says

“For 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

Every woman can choose to believe that her life is a masterpiece in the making.

She can choose to be brave and believe that a uniquely beautiful life is still hers to have. She can boldly grab hold of the hope she has for the girl inside.
