Jesus Calling

Poppies watercolor F. McDonald

Each morning I read from a day book entitled “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. The book was given to me several years ago. When I first started reading it, I thought it was a bit silly and pretentious, as it was meant to be words from Jesus to me. But after some time, meditating on the readings, I have gotten great comfort from it.

This morning’s passage included the following: “Every problem can teach you something, transforming you little by little into the masterpiece I created you to be.” I never thought of myself as a “masterpiece”, even one in the process of becoming, but I found this very comforting, that with all my warts and faults, God is at work, molding this little pot into a great work of art. I wonder what the final product will look like?
