Feeling Discouraged?

If you are, “you are disagreeing with God.  Questioning his judgement.  Second-guessing his taste.  According to him you were ‘skillfully wrought’ (Ps. 139:15). You were ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ (Ps. 139:14).  He can’t stop thinking about you!  If you could count his thoughts of you, ‘they would be more in number than the sand’ (Ps. 139:18). Why does he love you so much?  The same reason the artist loves his paintings or the boat builder loves his vessels.  You are his idea.  And God has only good ideas. ‘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’ (Eph. 2:10 NLT).” – From Max Lucado’s Fearless (Affiliate Link)
