Excuses or Opportunities?

Ever thought that God can’t do anything with you? Ever thought that you weren’t worth His time? Ever come up with a real dandy of an excuse as to why God shouldn’t expect you to do some particular thing? Pretty sure I have a time or ten! Funny thing is, God has been dealing with us humans for a long time…and He’s never yet met one that He couldn’t use…

…How odd. The Bible is just chuck full of ordinary, rotten people just like you and me who did amazing things all because they let God use them. So what was that excuse I had again?? Maybe that excuse is really just an opportunity for God to do something amazing. Maybe God does a little “dumpster diving” Himself now and then to find that perfect piece of junk…to make into His treasure. If people can do it with pallets, and roadside trash, and rotted out houses…what makes you think the God of the universe can’t do it with you?

 2 Corinthians 12:9   And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

    Thank you, Abby, for the reminder that God doesn’t make junk. As much as we can be pushed around, dumped on, beaten up, and told we are worthless, God loves us and can see through our many coats of shame. He does have a purpose for each of us! We need to turn to Him for guidance. I love your “dumpster-diving” connection!
