Your canvas.

A Work in Progress?

What word(s) best describe your life's canvas?

 My current canvas is a work in progress, as I am still learning about my calling, my direction, and my future. As each day passes, God places new strokes on my canvas and reveals more and more of the masterpiece He is making.

1 Corinthians 3:10-11 reminds us that God is a wise masterbuilder and has laid the foundation of our lives through Jesus Christ.

He is our first layer. Our essential medium. Our beginning.

We so easily forget who holds the paintbrush.
We so easily forget that we are the stewards of the creative gifts that God has placed within us.
Let us remember today, the gift giver, canvas creator, master builder of our lives.

Yesterday a friend shared a C.S Lewis quote that resonated with me.
"You don't have a soul."
"You are a soul."

Let your soul speak.
Let your soul create.
Let your soul paint.

Lend an ear and a word.
Lend a hand and a brush.
And commit to create something beautiful today.

Your canvas is waiting.
