Scraps, Crumbs and Fragments

At any year’s end it is a positive to shed (pounds) of residue from our lives. Some may actually join a gym or begin a regiment of exercise. Equally beneficial are ridding our imperfections from the “remains” we were born with, attained or attached ourselves to over the years.

God is always seeking those who will allow him to remove the stains of pain and wounds. He yearns to eradicate the ills and deceptions causing us to sin. He pursues the heart so terribly broken to seize the smallest pieces leftover which resonate from past cruel recollections.scraps

We are not born perfect.

Tragic are the people of God who depend on that very instinctive nature to serve him.  If God didn’t ordain it, we shouldn’t be doing it. We are not all called to keep the nursery, teach or follow in the footsteps of our ancestors. Anything unplanned by God cannot be fulfilled by unintentional birthrights.

Our natural qualities will never come close to filling the desires of Christ. We were not created to be managed, altered or reformed.

Genesis 1: 26 “Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness.”

We are to trade in our scraps of emotional misery for the peace that passes all understanding. (Philippians 4:7”

The merciful “Counselor (Isaiah 9:6) will take each crumb we have made of ourselves and replace them one by one with the intrinsic nature of Christ resurrected.

If we voluntarily give the fragments of our pathetic lives to the great “Physician” (Luke 4:23) he will form them, one piece at a time into the likeness of the Savior. (Luke 2:11)

In 2014, why not join the “Jesus Gym?”

  1. I’ve been reading such moving blogs this morning, and yours is no exception. Terrific post.

    • TY Deborah. I sense a shift in America. Believing we need a personal relationship with Jesus is the area God is focusing. How about where you are? Do you notice it?

      • Yes indeed Cathy, there is something in the air in Australia too. Some Christians have prophesied a powerful move of the Spirit in 2014. The need for all of us to be in close relationship with God hits the nail on the head.

      • Deborah, We are 3 hours from 2014 here on the east coast of the U.S. I have never been glad a year ended but I am for this one. I find it so awesome of God that you are across the world from me and we both sense the same thing. I was thinking about your comment and how it is becoming noticeable to those who disagree with us. Because they are blinded to the truth, they are shocked at the fact there are so many here who are still in favor of a Christian nation that we were founded upon. Their efforts have fallen flat and will continue to do so according to the latest prophecies I have read. This “move” or “wind” or whatever it is at times I feel like it is almost tangible; and have never felt that before. Also it almost is like an inner excitement but now sure what it is all about.

      • It’s awesome, isn’t it? I was listening to a guy called Ken Fish early last year (2013) and to quote:
        “There is a stirring arising in the hearts of Christians all over the West today.” He also mentioned the Hebrides Revival which “fell like a blanket” and “people began streaming to church.” Yes, there are good times ahead.

  2. Thank you for a wonderful message
