A couple of weeks ago, I was inspired by a young lady who made beautiful decors from Dollar tree products. She spent very little money on the raw materials, but the end product looked stunning! Needless to say, I was super inspired to try out something along the same lines.
I decided to make a centerpiece for my dining table. So off to Dollar tree with my two helpers, I went. I kinda had an idea of what I wanted it to look like. I just wanted simple white flowers. We shopped around a bit and picked up all the stuff I needed and returned home.
The next day, I carefully picked out each flower stalk and cut it to the length that I needed, and began assembling them. As I kept adding each stalk, it was beginning to look exactly as I had it in mind! My Joy knew No bounds! When my little project was complete, Boy! Was I thrilled??!!!
I still don’t understand that joy behind creating something with your own hands and the sense of fulfillment that comes out of it. The best way to describe it would be ‘Delight’!! Those of you who are creative will resonate with what I’m saying!!
That evening Bini n’ Mum called, and the FIRST thing I talked to them, was about my new art piece! I Whatsapped the pic to my friends and showed it to Jeev with glee. I was jubilant and so proud of my work.
But wait! I noticed something. As kind and extremely sincere as all my friends and family were to appreciate my work, they did not enjoy my Masterpiece as much as I did!!!
I was eating, sleeping and dreaming about my handiwork. I kept looking at the picture several times that whole day! But to others, yes, it was good, but it didn’t bring the same ‘passionate excitement’ as it did to ME, it’s CREATOR!
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” Zeph 3:17
If you and I were to take a quick look at the World around us, it wouldn’t take us too long to realize that the depths of man is crying out to be VALUED. From the King in his courts to the Common man on the streets, everyone of us hunger, to be VALUED.
So often we look to the left and right and seek for that Value from people. But, that value that we so desperately crave for, can be given only by our CREATOR.
“Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; ” Psalm 100:3
He knows EVERYTHING there is to know about us – the good, the bad and the ugly! And YET STILL, values us with a deep, deep Love, like NO man can ever give!!!
“Are you not of more value than they?” Matthew 6:26
None of us know what events are awaiting the Earth in the Coming years. But be assured, there is a Savior clad in a White Robe, Mightier than all the host of Heaven combined, walking alongside You, like a friend, to simply let you Know, He Values YOU!
Your faintest cry, He will not deny!

Such a pretty centerpiece Varna! I can understand this so well! Sometimes I don’t want to share my creations with someone who may not appreciate the work & effort that went into it. But the Lord gives His love, again and again (even to die for) His creation (us) who don’t trust or obey Him completely.
