No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Dear God, I’m Your Canvas – Paint My Story

Are you trying to paint your own canvas? Or are you allowing the most creative artist and maker of Heaven and Earth to paint your story?

Ladies, your life is a canvas and you are a beautiful masterpiece. Allow God to choose the colors and live the life He has created for you. I promise your life will be more beautiful than you could ever imagine.

We often look to others for approval, as if they are the ones writing our story. The truth is that our story will never be complete until we give the paintbrush to Him.

Don’t let others opinions determine your value. People will disappoint, hurt, and judge you; and you will exhaust all your energy trying to please them. After all, we are all sinners saved by His grace. Thank you, God, that I am not the person I once was.

This is a trap girls, and Satan wants you to believe every single word of it. Is there one area in your life where you have allowed friends, family, co-workers, or even a spouse to determine your value? As difficult as it may be, I challenge each of you to give God your paintbrush and let Him create the most beautiful, magnificent, splendid creation imaginable.

XoXo

  1. This is what I needed. We try to please everyone else. Letting go is hard but with God all is possible. Thanks for this!!

  2. I finally got back to be able to comment. Yes it’s hard for us to give it to God and fully trust in him to take care of us. But very possible! I finally have and I just can’t get enough! The main thing that held me back was, I didn’t want to be a Christian if it meant to be like the hypocritical Christians I had seen. But when I got honest with myself, and TRUELY quit worrying about what other people thought, IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!! The Holy Spirit has been at work in me for ab 2yrs so far and ya’ll have seen the difference! Small as Pamplico and Evergreen are I used to walk in a room and everyone already heard a bad seed, stay away! Ah ha I’m constantly learning how awesome it is to not let anyone or anything hinder, your Spiritual growth. When you show God your serious and change ways and actions, he’ll do the rest for you! Never forget it comes from our Good Lord, Jesus Christ. And make sure you tell him you know that. It’s rough, tough, and you’ll go through so much so he can see your serious. When that happens and it gets where you can see the Storm’s coming like a Meteorologist. But that’s okay, bc you will have the confidence and get confirmation that you’re gonna be so much better off. It’s awesome! I should have did this sooner, but I’m here proudly telling people what I know Jesus Christ can do because he’s steady painting on this canvas! I love it, I love it, and I love it a lot more! But I thought it was time to put my words out here after the impression. Not what you thought? That’s how much more amazing the Holy Spirit will have you feeling, knowing and believing. Don’t know about y’all, but I’ve already wasted to much time in the wrong life. I don’t want him to leave me behind. I got kids I gotta see in Heaven, and one on Earth I gotta change the outcome for. I promise, it’s worth all you go through and then some. If you only make sure you go after it all! Truely seeking is so much different than just believing in God. Sorry, finally got where I could share with you all how he’s helped me. I hope this will help you! Just one would be fine but I hope it helps all of you! Thanks for accepting me at Lebanon Church, y’all are awesome too! Thank you Jesus!!
