What’s Masterpiece?

What image did you picture? (you can share that with me in the comments)

Here’s what came to my mind, YOU. Yes, you reading this piece and me too😊.

You are the masterpiece.


The Masterpiece

You are the masterpiece!

You know how I know? By the quote below.

“For we are God’s Masterpiece. He created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” – Ephesians 2:10

Have you taken out time to check how the human body function? From all the systems that the human body is made of, to how these systems work together to allow for you to do what you do? Just the imagination alone gives me goose bumps. It is super amazing!

My friend, God dey create, abeg!

For someone like me who studied Human Physiology as first degree, and those in the medical sciences can easily picture the forms and structures and how the human body functions. To enhance your imagination if this sounds strange, check this out.

The creative community is growing so fast, science is blowing our minds with massive innovation (and when I mean “massive”, I’m not necessarily referring to the size but to it’s ability, jooget?), But the One who made the mind and put it in us deserves the accolade😊.

Look at you, a whole spec!


With all these imperfections?

Yes, You are still a spec!

Did you soon forget the adjectives that describes a masterpiece? that describes YOU too.

You are rough and splendid, imperfectly perfect, deliciously complex, fearfully and wonderfully made.

You are God’s greatest piece of art! That is a whole you.

Oh, you can still be a masterpiece and also a work in progress simultaneously.

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously” – Sophia Bush

As you are a living Masterpiece, you are also an ever-evolving, ever-improving and ever growing work in progress. You are both a Masterpiece and a work in progress too.

So are your dreams, goals and visions. They are evolving and improving. At the beginning, they might not have crystallized yet, but in the doing, with the right exposure, you have a full grasp of it.

Keep evolving, keep growing, keep being a better version of yourself each day, don’t stop.

So, yes, you are allowed to be both a Masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.
