Day 21: God says you are…

A WORK OF ART

I am no artist. Wala nga yata akong kahit kaunting bahid ng creativity sa pagkatao ko. OK, exaggerated yung statement ko. While many people say na ang hilig ko sa pagsusulat ay form of art na on itself, which I agree naman, for me kasi art = design, kung saan wala akong talent.

Recently lang I was asked to be interviewed on video for a school project. Bukod sa pagiging introvert, I felt din na hindi ako magre-register nang maayos sa harap ng camera. Mahina ang loob ko mababa ang self-esteem. Hindi ako sanay sa attention. Kaya nga siguro blogging at hindi thru vblogs ang extension ko ng sarili.

At kung sakali man na iniisip mo na yung absence mo wouldn’t make a difference, you are badly mistaken. Ang totoo, He can’t afford to lose you that He went as far as dying for our sins so we wouldn’t be absent kapag nagcelebrate na tayo sa heaven.

There are times when we just feel so ordinary, too common. Yung pakiramdam ba na kahit mawala ka as pack, your absence wouldn’t make any difference sa totality ng package. Dahil sa mga ganitong tingin natin sa ating sarili kaya lalong bumababa ang pagpapahalaga natin sa kung sino ba talaga tayo sa harapan ni Kristo. Yes, myself included. #NoteToSelf

But the thing is, we are very significant. Hindi lang tayo basta bilang sa general population. Hindi lang tayo basta pampasikip sa mundo. If this is so, God wouldn’t concern Himself creating us uniquely. Sana identical na lang tayo lahat, which we will all agree with me na #boring.

We may not be artistic but we are all work of art. Special creation tayo ni Lord. Special project. Hindi tayo hinulma sa iisang molde – we were all create uniquely and purposefully. May kanya-kanya tayong calling, designed and aligned sa intricate plans ni Lord. At kung sakali man na iniisip mo na yung absence mo wouldn’t make a difference, you are badly mistaken. Ang totoo, He can’t afford to lose you that He went as far as dying for our sins so we wouldn’t be absent kapag nagcelebrate na tayo sa heaven. We are His prized posession. We are His work of art.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:10
