“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28
Our affairs are forever getting tangled, like threads in a child’s hands—and we cannot straighten out the tangles ourselves! We cannot see how anything beautiful or good can come out of our poor living, or our feeble striving.
Our days are full of disappointments, and our night’s rest is broken by anxieties. Yet it is the Christian’s privilege to commit all life’s tangles into the hands of Jesus Christ. He can take our broken things—and build them up into beauty.
One of the finest windows in a great cathedral is said to have been made out of the fragments of broken glass which the workmen had thrown away as worthless. A skillful hand gathered them up—and wrought them into lovely form.
Just so, Jesus Christ can take our failures, our mistakes, our follies, our broken fragments of life, even our sins, and make them into beautiful life and character!
“Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5
