Waves don’t have hands, yet they perfectly mold shells. What can you do with yours?

My wife, son and I strolled along the beach early this morning.  We were looking for shells before the tide and waves got too big later on during the day.  Carefully observing shell by shell, I was in awe at how beautifully and uniquely shaped they all are.  It didn’t matter the size, large or small, the shapes, curves, colors and characters of the shells were just astounding.  And there are not hundreds but billions of these spectacular shells all over the world.  Pretty amazing to think about, especially when no one is  personally laying his hands on the ocean floor to create these pieces of art.  By the sheer nature of waves, sand and the dynamic of the ocean, these shells come into being…and are perfect.

Unlike the ocean, we are blessed with actual hands.  If the ocean can create beautiful shells without hands, what are we capable of?  Should’t we be able to create these same forms of beauty if not ten-fold more?  What might happen if we apply everything we have, everything we are made of,  into everything we do?  Would we be able to create uniqueness and spectacular pieces of art as well?  What would happen if we apply the same effort into our minds and hearts as well?  Take on the challenge to create greatness in your life, starting with your hands and going beyond!
I come from the greatness of God
I will apply myself fully in everything I do
