“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us in Christ Jesus, so we can do good things he planned for us long ago.” –Ephesians 2:10
Oh my, the plans God is revealing to me.
If you had told me four years ago that I would be going into a profession that centers around kids suffering from chronic illnesses, I would have called you a liar.
If you had told me two weeks ago that I would have an internship this semester at a battered women’s shelter, I would have laughed at you.
God hasn’t just taken me out of my comfort zone. He has pushed me off of a ledge and into a sea of unknowns, and some situations have been hard to deal with.
I found out that the dialysis isn’t working for one of the little boys I worked with in the hospital. It’s been a long and hard battle for him.
Today at the shelter a woman called the hotline but all we heard was screaming before the phone was disconnected.
Then there are the wonderful things, like the sweet moment when a child gave me a sticker that said, “BFFs Rule!”
Or when I was helping a woman at the shelter pick out clothes, and she thanked me over and over again for being there, for choosing cute clothes, for smiling with her.
I never thought that God’s plans would lead me here, or that my heart could handle all of the stresses/fears/joys that these plans of His have created, but I am so happy that they have.
He truly does know what I need, and I am blessed to be called His masterpiece.
