I’m a little weird…but I like to take things intended for one thing, but use them in a totally different way. For example, a 3-tiered stand from the garden center to hold potted plants, now holds plates of cookies on a dessert table-And quite attractively, too.
I love hardware stores! All those do-dads & whatchamacallits that I have no idea of what they might actually BE, end up as part of a decorating or craft project.
Garage Sales and thrift stores send shivers of anticipation down my spine.
I have been known to stop on garbage day, load a piece of discarded furniture into my car, and drive away with ideas of repurposing that piece into something usable and beautiful. I usually finish the task, too.
I find great satisfaction at taking the unloved stuff people want to get rid of and making it desirable again.
Christ also has a ‘trash to treasure’ mentality. Creator of all, He finds worth in us, even when we do not accept and value ourselves. He sees us as a treasure, not in the making, but ALREADY!! In Psalm 139:14 & 15, God’s book, the bible, says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Each of us is unique, made for a purpose that will ultimately GLORIFY the Creator.
Christ can take the refuse of our lives, redeem us, & be glorified IN & THROUGH us. I find that awesome! I encourage you to read that wonderful book, the Bible, and see yourself through the eyes of God. He loves YOU with an everlasting love.
My latest project involves a $8 cabinet found at a thrift store & 3 large pickle jars. Are you intrigued?
Psalm 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
