Content With Who We Are

According to Ephesians 2:10, you and I "are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." When I'm not pleased with the talents, gifts, and abilities God gave me, I remind myself that He is the Blessed Controller of all things (1 Timothy 6:15). If I believe this, I also must believe that God is the Blessed Controller of my "all things". My appearance. My personality. My gifts and talents. In my heart of hearts I long to please God, and it pleases Him when I am content with how He created me.
