We must gather the good, hard, and painful experiences of our lives and commit them to a God who wields the power to do something with them and make something of them.
God may create an unexpected platform;
He may impose an unlikely timing.
He may draw an unlikely crowd,
And He may speak an unusual message ...
But God will work.
God wipes our tears and translates our fears into a remarkable testimony that gives Him glory. He utilizes our weaknesses and inserts us into the "cast" of the unrighteous made righteous.
The unholy made holy.
The broken made beautiful.
The sinner made Saint.
The captive made captured.
And the beauty and glory of God appears in its purest state through individuals of no estate.
Thy mystery of God prevails through these mortal and frail frames and the glory of God escapes and makes itself known.
God makes no mistakes.
God knows what it takes ...
To draw men to Himself and receive glory.
When God breaks us,
He remakes us,
And the story and the glory are His;
For the glory of God alone.

"And He said unto me, 'My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.' Most gladly therefore, will I rather glory in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9
