Okay, so today I was listening to worship music and writing down prayers in my journal. This song came onto my Pandora, and I fell in love with how it moved my heart. Before you read the rest, stop and listen to this, let the words fill you up and consume your soul! How great is our God…
Broken Things -Matthew West
The one line that just made my soul well up with pure JOY…
“But if it’s true, you use broken things, then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours…”
There’s been so many days where I feel less than inadequate. I’ve had my fair share of doubts in myself and my abilities. I’ve questioned where my life is going, or where God is taking me. The kind of days where you feel bad, like you just stink. Like well, as if you are straight up, the worst of the worst. We’ve all been there. Being a Christian doesn’t always mean we have perfect days, or that nothing ever goes wrong. BUT, what it does mean is that even on the bad days, where we ARE the worst of the worst… God still is working all things for the better, for our good!
What an awesome God we have, that he uses the broken, the people who sin daily, grumble a lot, and think we know it all. He uses US to do WONDERFUL THINGS! How awesome is that?! He has a purpose for you and your life. YOU, yes you, are on purpose! God planned this earth, and he planned you! Let that replenish your soul this morning, and everyday. Let that be the cry of your heart on a day that you feel less than, weak, tired, lonely, or imperfect. Let it be known that our God makes ALL things work together for our good. And He uses the broken things to do it! Let it remind you that He is the good good father, and in Him we can do all things.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
