And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
1 Peter 5:10
We were in search of some old wood to use to build a decorative wall for the stage of our church, and I happened to mention it at just the right time! Someone very dear to me mentioned this little old house that was falling down on their property, and said that we could use this wood if we’d like.
The house was over 100 years old-perched on top of a hill, nestled under some amazing trees…
So on a recent chilly morning, we went up to that little hill
and began prying off the old orange wood.
I thought about the people who had once called this little peace of heaven their “home”. It may have been old and crumbling, but the view from this place is heavenly!
And that old wood still had a lot of life left in it!
These old pieces of wood were falling down, worn and weathered from the elements. And now we have repurposed them for our worship service! They turned out so beautiful, even more special since they are from a dear friend- whom I say is more like family!
When we give our lives to Christ-
He restores us- He makes us new and uses us in ways we could never dream of!
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
