Often times there are songs that really minister to me. It seems every time I turn on the radio the same song is playing. Recently that song has been Masterpiece by Danny Gokey. It is a great reminder that God is continually working in my life and in the lives of my loved ones through all circumstances to transform us into something beautiful. He is conforming us into the image of His Son: “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son.” (Romans 8:29) Even when life is painful, trust Him that He is still sovereign and working in your life. Read the lyrics below and be encouraged that God is making you His masterpiece:

Heartbreaks a bittersweet sound

Know it well It’s ringing in my ears

And I can’t understand

Why I’m not fixed by now

Begged and I pleaded

Take this pain but I’m still bleeding

Heart trusts you for certain

Head says it’s not working

I’m stuck here still hurting

But you tell me

You’re making a masterpiece

You’re shaping the soul in me

You’re moving where I can’t see

And all I am is in your hands

You’re taking me all apart

Like it was your plan from the start

To finish your work of art for all to see

you’re making a masterpiece

Guess I’m your canvas

Beautiful black and blue

Painted in mercy’s hue

I don’t see past this

You see me now

Who I’ll be then

There at the end

Standing there as

Your Masterpiece

You’re shaping the soul in me

You’re moving where I can’t see

-Danny Gokey

“God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:8-10)

“As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.” (Psalm 17:15, NKJV)
