A little story...

In reading at Bible study I was reminded of a story I once read. I'm sure I will butcher the story, but I hope you all get the idea. (As I type this, I am thinking Sharon at Sit with me Awhile could write this so much better!)

There was a little girl who ate breakfast in her room every morning. She had a cupboard of lovely dishes, teapots, tea cups...Then she had one ugly wooden bowl. The wooden bowl was sad and wished he was as pretty as all the fancy teacups lined with gold rims and pretty paintings all over them. The teacups and pots got to be used on special special occasions. Oh, how he wished he could be like them. The wise old teapot encouraged the little bowl. She said to him, "yes, you may be ordinary, while we are fancy, but you are used EVERY day by the little girl. She cherishes you!

So, I was thinking, it is the same with us. We can be a fancy dancy Christian, that looks nice and talks nice, but how much better it is to be that ordinary wooden bowl, useful to the Master!

2 Tim. 2:20Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. 21Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.

Nicely told girl...and at the right time by our Lord.
I have never felt like the fancy tea cup...but I have always wanted to be used by the Lord.
There have been so many times lately when I have felt like that wooden bowl or cup put away gathering dust.
The longer I have sat the more I have felt forgotten. And yet I know that there were promises made and in His time..He will do it.
It does not matter that the other "fancy teacups" are being used and fussed over. The time will come.
Daddy God in heaven is picking up that old wooden cup and dusting her off...and in His hands she will be filled with wine that will bring healing to the body.
It may not make sense but this was the verse for me this morning...."9For this was how the promise was stated: "At the appointed time I will return, and Sarah will have a son." Romans 9

Thank you for posting was much needed.
Love ya girl


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
