It was New York City in 1924, and a great English artist found himself surrounded with inspiration.  William Wolcott was there to capture the famous skyscraper city in his drawings. One day while visiting a friend, who worked at an architect's office, he was suddenly overcome with the desire to sketch. Turning to his colleague, he said, "Please, I need some paper!"  William noticed some paper on a desk and asked, "May I have that?"  His colleague responded, "That is not sketching paper Mr. Wolcott, it's just ordinary wrapping paper."  Determined not to lose the inspiration of the moment, William grabbed it saying, "Nothing is ordinary if you know how to use it!"  

That day William made two sketches on the plain, ordinary wrapping paper. It's interesting to note that later that year the one sketch sold for $500 and the other for $1000. That was quite a sum of money, especially considering that the average wage in the 1920's was $1,116 a year, and a new car cost $575.  

How do you take less than a penny's worth of paper and turn it into a fortune? You connect what seems ordinary to a master, submit it, and receive the impressions of his thoughts.  What's the difference between a $1 bill and a $100 bill; only the message!

You may feel ordinary, even worthless today. The verdict of your true value has not been weighed until you submit yourself to the Creator of all things.  Let Him inscribe His thoughts on the table of your heart.  He says in Jeremiah 29:11 that He knows His own thoughts, and that the sum of them is to prosper you.  

God loves you so much that if you'll submit your heart to Him, He writes a priceless message on the inside of you.  Hebrews 8:10 says, "I will imprint My laws upon their minds, even upon their innermost thoughts and understanding, and engrave them upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people."

You haven't even begun to imagine the greatness of God's working in your life.  He makes all things new!  How?  He inscribes with His pen on your heart, and with His Word on the canvas of your mind.  Please don't assume to know the limits of your design. What the world considers cheap, throw-away, wrapping paper, God turns into priceless art; making nations wonder at His glory. Partner with the Creator now and let His pen inscribe the amazing message He has for your heart.

Pray the message:

Father I submit my heart and mind right now to your creative hand.  Write your Truth upon my innermost thoughts and give me understanding. Yes engrave my heart with Your absolutes for life, favor and blessing! You loved me first. You paid the ultimate price for me when you gave Your only begotten Son to save me. I receive the amazing message of Your Word on my heart now. Suddenly all things are made new!
