Nothing is Wasted

God can use whatever you’re going through right now.

If you’re in the midst of a financial disaster, drowning in a severe bout of loneliness or depression, or even wading through a difficult time where someone has let you down and you don’t know how to get through it, not one moment of that will go to waste if you take it all to God.

It’s like the autumn leaves.  After they change and fall to the ground and their beautiful colors fade, all we see are clumps of brown leaves sticking to our boots.  But underneath the surface, decomposition is taking place and preparing the soil for a new spring.  Those leaves are not wasted.  They’re being used over time and in a new way.

How is God going to use this difficult season you’re going through?  What new way is He going to use you?

Maybe you’ll be able to help someone who is going through the exact same thing you are.  Or perhaps because of today’s pain in the freezing rain, you’ll be able to avoid an even bigger storm so you can dance in the sunlight of tomorrow.

Whatever the reason, be excited, my friend!  Nothing is impossible with God, nothing is too hard for Him, and when the time is right, you’re going to see one awesome spring.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.”  (Romans 8:28 NIV.)
