It’s sometimes very easy for me to get swept up into a flurry of emotion but I know only when I fully allow myself to come to You and break apart all the feelings that I’ve let rule my life that You will use me in the way my heart desires. I am lucky, even if it is not by chance You have chosen me, I feel luckier each and every day. How fortunate to serve someone who wants me to throw away the racist, sexist, bigot, hypocritical ties that bind my heart. Thank you for not expecting perfection from me. How beautiful you make the flaws of world, how enraptured in Your wonderfulness I am. You are preparing in me a bountiful harvest and I know I am to nurture and tend to the love that is building daily. My desire is that you help me give away this love, give it blindly with eyes not shut tightly on the things that makes each of us different but open and thriving and willing to accept the uniqueness of every person. That is my prayer.To love myself without cold eyes but with a warm heart so that I may fully serve You. Thank You for the blessings you have placed in my life. I trust You with my life, I trust You with my heart. Reveal yourself to me in the unexpected.
This is a song that gives me hope despite my weakness. God always has and always will make beautiful things out of weak people like me. Often times I don’t feel beautiful, or act beautifully, or think beautiful thoughts. A sinner as I am, God chooses to extend his love to reach down and to transform even the smallest and weakest things, and use them for the building and extending of His kingdom. That is great news for all of us. That is great news for me. As I think about embarking on this journey, I feel really really small, and like this adventure is way bigger than me. And all of this is true. I am small. This adventure is way bigger than me, or my own strength. But that’s OK. God has and always make beautiful things of of the dust, and out of us.
