With the aid of an ancient but wonderful photo-manipulation graphics program, I can transform non-descript photos into dreamy sketches. I get to play “artist”, without overtaxing my actual drawing skills. The software does the work. But there’s creative effort on my part, as well – for I’m the one who decides which buttons to click to pull out the most amazing patterns.
I’m filled with gratitude to think that God takes what seem to us mundane and often non-descript parts of our lives, and transforms them into godly patterns. He not only knows “which buttons to click”, but best of all, he doesn’t need a “program” to help him re-create us. He does the work because of his own majesty and greatness. Dreamy sketches emerge in us, thanks to his amazing grace and unfailing Love.
