"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."  
                (1 Corinthians 13:12)

 


Today's Thought

 Have you ever looked closely at a stained glass window? The handblown,
manually cut, leaded pieces fit together to form beautiful artwork which
very often tells a story. When the sun beams its radiance through the
carefully structured artwork, the sight is breathtaking. No two hand-made
windows are alike . . . each tells a story of their own!

 Our lives are much like this stained glass artwork. We once were fractured pieces of glass which appeared meaningless and lacked any type of radiant beauty. As the Lord picked up each piece, one by one, and applied His grace and His mercy as the "lead" which secures the pieces together, a beautiful picture began to form.

 Day by day, moment by moment, the Master Artist is fitting the pieces of
our lives together. As He shines His glory through us, a most magnificent
scene is revealed. It's a picture of Grace and Mercy . . . it's a portrait
of a Father's Love for His child!

 If your life seems a bit "abstract" or "muted" at times, it's only because
another piece of the picture is being put in place and secured by the
mercy of God. Remember that whatever you're going through, God will use
every little piece of your life to complete the portrait which will radiate
His beauty . . . His glory . . . His love to a world that is lost and
dying.

 
Today's Prayer

 Father, thank You for picking up the pieces of my life, applying Your mercy and grace, and fitting me back together to where Your glory can be seen through me . . . Your radiance can shine through me . . . Your mercy can flow through me! I can't say it enough, Lord, You are truly awesome and I love you! Amen!

 
Have a blessed day!
