Mused by Piper....

My family is artsy

My family is big

Music, drawing, singing, you name it, we do it prolifically



Thus, whenever the members of our large family come for a visit, they insist on being shown around the house and seeing the new art work that we have done since they last came. Each new piece of artwork that we show or song that we sing is usually accompanied by a few ‘Wow’s or ‘you are so talented! how do you do it?!’ s. My sister, the famous artist in the family, usually responds with, “Do you want to see what I am working on now?” And it is even more incredible than the last beautiful thing was.

I was thinking about this in a spiritual context the other day. Have you ever been outside on a dark velvet night, and seen the fields of stars blooming above you? Have you ever gone out to the lake shore and watched the sun come up in a blaze of glory? Think of the most breathtaking scene you have ever witnessed.

Yeah.

“Wow.”

“God, how do you do it?” we say. “You are so amazing. How big is your imagination to create something like this?”

And God says, “Hey, check this out! You see the moon, the stars, and the sun? I created them too. And all those sunsets you’ve enjoyed? I’ve painted a different one every evening since the beginning of time.”

And then He says, “Do you want to see what I’m working on now?”

It’s your heart.

And there’s nothing left to do but praise Him. God is so magnificent, so worthy, so holy, so pure, so creative, so awesome in His power, and He created the works that blow your mind. And the thing that He’s working on now is your heart. Isn’t God great?
