Heartbreak is a bitter sound, I know it well; it's ringing in my ears and I can't understand why I'm not fixed by now. I’ve begged and pleaded for God to take this pain, but I’m still hurting. My heart trusts Him but my head says it’s not working. Then He tells me He’s “making a masterpiece”. Ephesians 2:8-10 – “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Acts 3:19 - “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;” Isaiah 64:8 - “But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”
God is shaping the soul in me and moving when I can’t see. He’s taking me all apart, like it was His plan from the start to finish His work of art for all to see. I guess I’m His canvas, beautiful black and blue, painted in mercy’s hue. I don't see it, but He sees me now and who I’ll be then, there at the end … His masterpiece.
