The other day many thoughts were running through my head (as ever) and somewhere in the background Ephesians 2:10 kept cropping up:
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Often I struggle to believe that I am God’s ‘masterpiece’. What are the good works I have been created to do? And more to the point when do I ever get to be ready to do them, rather than keep tripping up along the way?
One moment I am going along and life is fine and I think that I am doing fine. Then out of the blue, whoops, I blow it somehow and rushing up to the fore come all my bad points. So, then I start feeling ashamed for ever having contemplated that I could ever do doing ok. Mixed up in all that is the gnawing wish that God would just leave me alone and stop shaping and moulding me – can’t I just stay as I am for a little while. It would be nice to spend more time in a comfort zone than out of it. Yes, I can see the benefits of all this moulding in hindsight but a rest along the way to admire the view would be nice.
And then the day after I received this clip. It is awesome.
If like me, you struggle with struggling, then watch this and be inspired to keep going.
