I’m taking a little break from the Dig Deeper Series today. We’ll be getting back to that soon.
I felt like God wanted to share something different today.
Recently I’ve had a situation that has left me reeling…feeling like a fool, like I was worthless.
Maybe you’ve felt that way too.
But here’s the thing…that’s not what God sees in us. And get this–that’s not what he THINKS about you or me.
After Jesus had fed the 5,000 He gave some interesting instructions to the disciples.
When they had all had enough to eat, He said to the disciples,
“Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.”
Friends, God doesn’t want to let anything go to waste, not even the crumbs of our messy lives.
He wants to use everything…everything…to bring glory to His name.
Be comforted that you are not alone. God looks at the messes in our lives and helps us clean them up, and then is good enough to show us His light in the midst of it all.
So don’t be discouraged when situations happen and the devil accuses you, saying “Who do you think you are?” or whispers the lie that you’re nothing but a big ol’ hot mess. You might be a big ol’ hot mess sometimes, but that’s not the end all, be all of who you are. You’re loved by God, the creator of the universe and if HE says that you have value, then friend, you DO.
Pick yourself back up. Continue in OBEDIENCE to God. Clean up your mess and give it to God, even the crumbs. Then watch what He does with them.
Blessings and joy,
