How many of you are at a point in your life where you feel stuck, lost, or frustrated? You have a vision, goal, or burning desire to do something extraordinary ; but the harder you try, the more things go wrong. This is a familiar place in this journey of life. Oftentimes we feel hopeless, worthless and ready to throw in the towel. It is even easier to feel insignificant when you factor in the world’s ever changing, seemingly impossible standards of success. Oh, but I want to encourage you today that God has the final say!
Did you know that you serve a God that specializes in broken pieces? God roots for the underdogs and seeks them to be used specifically for His purpose, power, honor and glory. No, I am not saying that to sound poetic or prolific; I am sharing with you the word of God!
Acts 27:43b-44, KJV : 43b . . . and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land: 44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.
I encourage you to read the entire chapter but the following are a few points that will put things in perspective and immediately lighten your spirit:
Side bar/reflection: Is your peace of mind, life, and comfort more important than the souls that God is trying to reach through your testimony? Is their soul not more valuable than your struggles as a servant of God? He already has you under His protection and the fight is fixed. You are destined to win. Let go and allow God to use you, especially your broken pieces!
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.–Jeremiah 29:11, NLT
