Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


Leonardo da Vinci was an artist of great skill. When he was a pupil studying under his master painter, the master called Leonardo to him and asked him to finish a painting the master had begun. The man had grown old and felt the time had come to quit painting. Young da Vinci had such reverence for his master's skill that he was overwhelmed by the suggestion that he should add his strokes to the master's. The man said simply, "Do your best".

Trembling with emotion, Leonardo seized the brush and knelt before the easel to pray. "It is for the sake of my beloved master that I implore skill and power for this undertaking" As he began to paint, his hand grew steady and his eye awoke with slumbering genius. He created a masterpiece."

Will you take the paintbrush of life in your hand, and kneel before your Master? He is the Master Painter, we are the frame that holds His work. Ask for His divine guidance, and then simply do your best!

  1. Good thoughts Wanda! It is so easy to get caught in analysis paralysis because we desire perfection in what we do. God does ask for perfection.. He is happy when we give it our best.

    Lord help us know that we are your hands and feet.. and empower to your purposes.

  2. Yes many of us have failing health, but one thing all God's people can do is to pray for others, may we be prayer warriors and knowing that God hears and answers our petitions.
    Hugs and blessings
