Are We Drawing The Right Picture?

Thursday, January 24, 2013

A friend gave my DD this picture (it's just a copy...not the real thing) yesterday for helping her pack up to move.
It's a famous drawing by the Dutch Artist M. C. Escher.

I've always like this drawing, but the more I look at it, the more I wonder...are we drawing the right picture of ourselves?

God created us as individuals, and even though we may have the same 'equipment' on our bodies as everyone else, we each have an obligation to use that 'equipment' in the best way possible.

We can sit on our couch and eat as much as we want...which I have been doing for a long time...or we can get up and get moving.

We can 'draw' ourselves as fat and lazy...or we can 'draw' ourselves as thin and full of energy.

We can even use a palette of paints and 'paint' a masterpiece (with God's help).

I've finally, fully realized the pencil/pen/paint brush is in MY hand. From now on, I am going to use it to the best of my ability to create the body I was intended to have all along. I know God didn't create me to be obese. I know He didn't even create me to be overweight. He created me to be my best, and that is just what I intend to be...with His help.

...Maybe I'd better start with a chisel and hammer!

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark."


"Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it."


"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."

    I agree, we are all God's creation and our bodies should reflect His awesome handiwork. How far off the mark I've become. Shame on me!! Thanks for the eye-opener.
