I get scriptures in my email. When I read this scripture, I had an “Aha” moment. I shivered as goose bumps popped out on my arms. “Wow, I am the results of God’s workmanship.” This was a new understanding and it struck a note. I always understood God created me, but being the result of His workmanship struck a different note. It made me realize that a great deal of thought and care lent a hand to complete me. I felt valuable and knew God fashioned something special in me, enabling me to accomplish things that only I’m uniquely gifted to do. Another fact I learned from this devotional is that the Greek word for workmanship is poem. So to be a poem is special. Poems touch people’s’ hearts. I like to feel that as a writer, my writing can and should touch someone’s heart and or feelings. I’m sorry that have a peculiar train of thought, but. I was touched by this scripture.
God has empowered all writers to do good works. If God has led you to be a writer, each day he will trust your to serve him. Your don’t have to write devotionals, children’s stories, or human interest pieces. We do have to be respectful as writers in our choice of words. He wants us all to be able to do something special with the talents he has given us. Remember your are a product of he workmanship and that alone should make you feel valuable. Keep his poem alive and touch others hearts with your writing.
Lord help us to remember how hard you worked on creating us. Help us to create our own wonderful poems and touch others in you name.
