When I was growing up as a sinner I tried to paint my life doing what seemed to be right.
However it didn’t work. Then I made the decision to allow Jesus to paint my life.
I allowed Jesus to paint my life from within to be seen outwardly and to serve Him with my whole heart.
My goal (May it be your goal as well) is to reflect, imitate, and reveal the totality of all that God is. (To be a reflection!)
Matthew 5:16 (AMP)
“Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16 (NKJV)
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:13-16 (TLB)
"You are the world’s seasoning, to make it tolerable. If you lose your flavor, what will happen to the world? And you yourselves will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. 14 You are the world’s light—a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. 15 Don’t hide your light! 16 Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.

"[Oh, your perversity!] You turn things upside down! Shall the potter be considered of no more account than the clay? Shall the thing that is made say of its maker, He did not make me; or the thing that is formed say of him who formed it, He has no understanding?”
“Yet, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our Potter, and we all are the work of Your hand."
