The Maker and The Flaws

God sees all my flaws.  He’s the Maker of my heart, the Designer of my life, who knit me together and laid out my steps.  He’s formed me, molded me, reshaped me throughout my life.  The molding and reshaping is an ongoing process.  I am never not in His hands.

Digging Deeper: On the Usefulness of the Aesthetic

Ephesians 2:10 tells us that God created us for good works, works that He “prepared beforehand” for us. As someone who makes things by hand, I sometimes wonder if I contribute “enough” to the Kingdom. Goodness, as a mom with a full time secular career I wonder that. But here in Exodus, I find people just like me, prepared by upbringing and situation to be in the exact place God needed to fulfill His purpose. Usefulness is not determined by what we do, but by how we do it - cheerfully, obediently, skillfully, and with complete commitment.
