Have a meaning-full day.
(An Elementary School teacher’s poem…)
He came to my desk with a quivering lip, the lesson was done;
“Have you a new sheet for me, dear teacher, I’ve spoiled this one?”
I took his sheet, all soiled and blotted,
Gave him a new one, all unspotted;
And into his tired heart I cried, “Do better now, my child.”
I went to the Throne with a trembling heart, the day was done;
“Have you a new day for me, dear Master, I’ve spoiled this one?”
He took my day, all soiled and blotted,
Gave me a new one, all unspotted;
And into my tired heart He cried, “Do better now, my child.”
Don’t you just love God’s grace…?
Ever feel completely unfit to serve God or people? Good.
“He continually watches the good and the wicked, and as His most holy eyes have not found among sinners any smaller man, nor any more insufficient and sinful, therefore He chose me to accomplish the marvelous work that God hath undertaken; He chose me because He could find none more worthless, and He wishes to confound the nobility and grandeur, the strength, the beauty and the learning of this world. He ignored every popular idea of His day (and ours) about what kind of person could fit the role. Jesus’ band of disciples was untrained and without influence—a motley group for world change.” —Oswald Chambers
What will He do through you?
What can’t He do…?
