These are my favorite reading glasses.The frame is cracked and the arms are all wiggly. So much that the lens could literally fall out at any given time.
I refuse to send them to the trash can. It doesn't matter that I have another pair in perfect condition..... I love these glasses!!!
And for that reason alone, I keep them.
The crack doesn't make them any less usable to me. The wiggly arms are tightened daily and yet I still put them on my face.
Me and my face love these glasses and regardless of their imperfections, they are still usable to me~
As a child of God I too have cracks and imperfections in my life. I have had tragedies,hardships, and failures. I have wiggly arms that need to be tightened daily ( emotions) and a lens that needs to be held in place on occasions. (my heart)
But the good news is.....GOD can and will still use me!!!
He has taken my tragedies and turn them into testimonies......
He has taken my hardship, and failures and turn them to good.....
He has taken my heart in the palm of his hand and place a balm of Gilead over it.
All because ......HE LOVES ME!!
~happy dance...happy dance~
He doesn't see any brokenness in my life as a reason to throw me in the trash.
Instead He sees me as a testimony of His Glory!
His power and grace....
His love and mercy....
His healing and restoration...
Our daddy God doesn't see any of his children's brokenness as a reason to throw us away.
~Whew~ I am so forever grateful!
Aren't you?? :)
As I placed my "broken" glasses on my face to blog this post, I was reminded.....
God does not call the equipped.....HE EQUIPS THE CALLED!!!
I want to encourage you all, no matter the brokenness you may have endured in life, You are still usable for God's kingdom, to be a beacon of light for those who feel as though they are unworthy of love and grace.
And most importantly, You are loved!!!!
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
