Isn’t God funny? His choices make his sense of humor quite funny.
Some days we feel as though nothing in the world is going our way. We feel like we are a garbage disposal and everyone treats us like we our junk. Other days, everything is perfect. We shine bright as gold and are the center of attention. But why? Why would God choose to make us as a garbage disposal?
In Romans 9:21 it says this, “When a potter makes jars out of clay, doesn’t he have a right to use the same lump of clay to make one jar for decoration and another to throw garbage into?”
God has control over what our days look like and what he uses us for. Every single one of us have a purpose. All are different yet we ALL have ONE purpose whether we are the garbage or we are the gold!
In one of the following verses, Paul states, “He does this to make the riches of his glory shine even brighter on those to whom he shows mercy, who were prepared in advance for glory.”
Whether you are the garbage or the gold, you can show God’s glory! Isn’t that awesome, you can be the bottom dollar crop and still be showing your creator’s glory! That is astonishing to me that he uses us at our lowest points! So don’t be ashamed of who you are! Let your light shine! Be the gold in the garbage!
See the gold in you, or you wont be able to see the gold in everybody else…that’s your job.
Focus on the gold you do have, because its more than enough to get the job done.
There is always Gold in the Garbage!
