The Painter – Jesus
When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are under His protection and guided by the Holy Spirit. You become a child of God, and a member of His family.
“For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons and daughters of God.”
─ Romans 8:14 NASB
The paint palette of life encompasses thrills of enjoyment, hues of challenges and many tertiary colors in between. Naturally, there are beautiful and precious colorful moments containing joyful experiences shelved within a special memory, never to be forgotten. You may have taken a picture to help capture the memory for reflection later. These moments include times with family members, friends, colleagues, teachers or just you and the Holy Spirit.
Life’s paint palette also includes challenges, especially those that push you beyond what the Lord prepared you for previously. They often include awful encounters or many neutral or negative items hitting all at once — a moment that rocks you beyond your familiarity or comfort. Such challenging moments usually include tears and an array of emotions.
The significance of your life’s paint palette colors is the Author, Creator and Painter – Jesus.
The family you were raised in may have been spectacular or, unfortunately, very challenging. Your focus on Jesus will help you through the picture God is painting of your life. You will have natural reflection moments when you look back and remember the good and bad and see how He has painted your beautiful journey. God loves you.
