Instead of getting mad about it, It dawned on me that God just might have a plan in all this clutter. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have learned my job is to love and support my husband and God will be the one to direct his steps. Uhg...so hard sometimes! Anyway, I start thinking, (via Holy Spirit prompting cause honestly, I'm not that good lol), this must be a test, I think it's a lesson in trust. I know God is in this mess, but where?
When I found out my husband only paid $100 for all these molds plus several containers of paint, paint brushes, and a firing kiln, I realized this definitely has God's fingerprints on it! We could turn around and make some good money on all this wonderful stuff the Lord laid in front us. Funny how everything changes when I see God amidst the rubble. This mess just turned to treasure right before my eyes! Glory to God! It's amazing what He will do with what we would call junk if we would give Him the chance.
Like I said in my last post, I have been sick for over two years which has really limited my ability to get out of the house. However, one day I got an overwhelming urge to get some paint and try my hand at creating something with these molds! I started with some already fired, but not yet painted ceramics that came with all the other stuff. As I was painting I realized not only do I need glasses ha ha, but also...this is so much fun! I just LOVE this new found talent I didn't even know I had! I can clearly see God now! He has blessed me with a craft that is not only fun, rewarding, and sometimes challenging, but it also takes my mind off of my illness as I get lost in each little creation. My wonderful husband now pours most of my molds and I paint them. I think he enjoys this new hobby as much as I do! Praise the Lord!
This would have been a much different story if I hadn't listened to the Holy Spirit and waited to see what God was going to do with all this stuff in my driveway! I wouldn't have this wonderful craft that makes me feel good about myself because it keeps me busy and I have fun doing it! My husband and I wouldn't have this hobby we can enjoy together. I also wouldn't have found out that I am actually talented at something ha, what a nice surprise that was! God is such a good God, so good I can't hardly stand it sometimes. His Love truly overwhelms me! I'm so glad I listened to the Holy Spirit the day my husband brought these home!
Do you have a mess in front of you right now? It could become one of your greatest blessings! God wants to show you what He can do! Can you see Him?
I give You all the glory Lord, You deserve all the praise and I give it to You, Yes, it belongs to You!
