As the keyboard is clicking away, our three sweet children lay just a few feet away. They are clad in their jammies and sleeping soundly in their tent just outside the lanai. I, in my jammies too, am in the midst of thankfulness for three such beautiful children. I soooo cherish those kiddos… and the amazing love of our Father. He has touched me in a very real way this past week, and I pray the aroma which arises from this encounter will be fragrant to His glory and far-reaching for His majesty.
I have been on a recent journey to the land “Down Under.” The kangaroos and koalas were cute, but oh, what a marvelous time the Lord and I had in Sydney, Australia. It was the Colour Conference 2011, complete with 10,000 ladies representing 34ish countries, and several amazing speakers bringing forth encouragement from our even more amazing Lord.
He drew me near, letting me know what a masterpiece I was. He immersed me in more of His love as it hit an all-time high of “oh so real.”
You see, masterpieces are cherished, treasured and are highly sought after. Yes, indeed, they are worth quite a lot. I didn’t always see myself that way prior to Colour.
BUT, this soaking and masterpiece realization wasn’t only for me. It was and is for you too. Care if I send a little fragrance your way? YOU are His masterpiece sweet friends. YOU are His handiwork, His valuable piece of workmanship. You are worth a lot in His eyes as He desires to pour forth more into your spirit and to reinforce His love for you, drawing you nearer and nearer.
Yes indeed, you, HIS masterpiece, are worth much.
Oh, and by the way….Colour 2012 tickets are currently on sale online. There’s a discount through this week, the cheapest they’ll be, in case you’re interested for next year.
