Amazing. God took some dirt and a bone and made humans. I know this story is well known but as I read this this morning something clicked. Everything else created was created with Words, God's Words. Humans were formed and fashioned out of things already in existence.
Why is that a big deal? Because that is hopeful for us. With our human eyes we wouldn't have seen any possibilities out of some dirt and a bone. God did!
The same goes for our lives. God will take what is in our lives, whatever it is and form and fashion us for His glory. It could be garbage and filth and awful stuff in our eyes, in the world's eyes. But God will use it all if we say He can. He will create such a life it will leave us breathless.
What is the bad stuff in your life? The stuff you wish wasn't there? Debt? Health issues? Family Strife? A Bad Job? Loneliness? It doesn't matter -- all of it, any of it, anything God can use to make an incredible life. Will you let Him?
This is what I prayed this morning: Oh Lord, please do that with my life. Please use all the junk: the debt, the health issues, the chaos, the mess, all of it in my life to bring You Glory!
