I do believe time is passing by fast and that is all the more reason
we do for Jesus what He has called us to do. We never know when the
time will come when He returns so I encourage you to not waste the
time the Lord has given you.
I always do call it a privilege to be able to share with you my thoughts
and these stories that I feel have a message that can both encourage and
inspire us. Here is a story that shows me how much I am loved by the Lord
and how close He holds me to Himself. All the Glory, Honor and Praise
belongs to the Lord for the things He is doing.
THE SMALLEST PIECE
A fourteenth-century Italian stained-glass artist was summoned to design
and create a huge portrait for the window of a cathedral in Chartres
France, a place well known for its stained-glass work. He laid all of the
pieces he was going to use out on the floor of the cathedral. They were
beautiful to behold; most of them were large and colorful. Some of the
colors from that time cannot even be reproduced today. Among these awesome
pieces of glass was a small, clear piece about as big as your fingernail.
As the stained-glass portrait was assembled, that little piece remained on
the floor. Only the big colorful pieces of glass were used.
On the day of the window's completion, the tiny piece of clear glass was
still lying on the ground. The entire city gathered to witness the
unveiling of the brilliant and beautiful stained-glass portrait. The
artist stood in front of the crowd, made his speech, and dramatically
pulled down the cloth cover. The crowd gasped at the beauty of the
colorful window glowing in the sunlight.
After a few seconds, however, the crowd grew silent. They sensed that
something was missing, that the portrait was unfinished. The great artist
then walked over to where the little clear piece of glass lay, picked it
up, and placed it in the portrait, right in the center of Jesus' eye. As
the sun hit that little piece, it gave off a dazzling sparkle. The
magnificent stained glass window still draws visitors. The first thing
they see is that sparkle in Jesus' eye.
Do you ever feel like that little piece of clear glass? You doubt you can
ever do anything for God. Let the story of that last little piece remind
you that God thinks of you as the apple of his eye. Psalm 17:8 "Keep me as
the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings." KJV
All the wonderful things that God has made in Heaven and in Earth does not
compare to the Love He has for you. God loves to be with us and loves to
hear our Praise towards Him for all the great things He has done for us.
I believe He is worthy to be Praised forever and ever for God is good and
His mercy towards us endures forever. Psalm 106:1
No matter that in your eyes you don't measure up to others; you are
important to God. That is why He sent His Son Jesus to die for you.
Read and meditate and these scriptures:
2 Corinthians 6:16-18 "And what agreement hath the temple of God with
idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will
dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall
be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate,
saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters,
saith the Lord Almighty." KJV
Zechariah 2:8 "For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he
sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you
toucheth the apple of his eye." KJV
Remember: God loves you and nothing people say to you or about you can
