I have set a new dental record for myself this year – I have been to the dentist 11 out of the 12 months this year. As I sat with my head cocked back in all kinds of weird positions at the dental lab for yet another dental crown fitting & custom color match, it made me think about the process that God takes us on as He molds us into who He wants us to be.
Sitting in the chair, looking up as these eyes dart side-to-side looking from the magnifying specs to see what has been created and what needs more work is how I envision God to look at us. He sets before us tasks and challenges, each meant to mold us and shape us into who we will become. Just as a crown goes through the molding and shaping to fit our tooth, God molds into the perfect image.
At times, we feel like the crown that must endure several re-shapings and re-fittings and re-firings to get the perfect fit. God knows what is best for us and what re-work we need to grow.
These re-shapings and re-fittings and re-firings produce a masterpiece that is unique to each person, just as each crown is unique to each mouth.
Live with the knowledge that you are a masterpiece, hand-crafted for world to see, by a God who loves you deeply.
