Sometimes we just see the paint (the mess)...not the Masterpiece

Be sure to watch the above video first, goosebumps to follow!

I know, amazing!  I just had to stop and think how often our life looks like that paint on the canvas... messy, chaotic, no real direction.  How could anything good come from this?  Is there any beauty in it?

Then as time goes on, we begin to see God in it all.  It wasn't so clear before, had to really squint to catch even a faint glimpse.  Then the Masterpiece appears.  The Master himself.

Be encouraged today as you look at your life.  Your paint.  The splatters.
Then remember His Face in the midst of it all. 


  1. After all these years of God's handiwork in my life, It's comforting to know that on my canvas He is painting a Masterpiece.
    All I can see are lots of beautiful colors and some obscure strokes from His brushes.
    I'm still a work in-process:}

    Lorie, Thanks for the video, and good luck on the site. I'll be watching.

  2. Don!!! Wow, so great to hear from you after all these years! I miss listening to your Band, Tetelestai, and your "Wa haaa" moments! And all those late night talks about Daniel 9!
