God doesn't make junk!

There is an old saying that states: “God doesn’t make junk!”
I love the sentiment of these words. It reminds me that when we begin our lives anew with Christ that he takes the broken, discarded pieces of our lives and he makes something amazing out of them. Others may look at us and think that we look unattractive or even a pile of ‘junk’ but that is not the way that God sees us.

 “… that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6 For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.”Ephesians 2:5-6

There are numerous artists who take scrap metal and make something incredible out of it – look at the picture attached. In a spiritual sense that is what God does for us. We were all bent out of SHAPE by the sin in our lives –  and maybe we were consider worthless, but through God’s LOVE and GRACE, he made something awesome out of our mess.

Prayer: Thank you Lord that in your eyes I am not a piece of junk, but rather a beautiful human being, filled with enormous potential and with a unique to make.

Living in Grace
