I couldn't get this treasure in my car fast enough. It's SUPER HEAVY & SUPER BULKY, but I DID IT! I just kept looking at it in awe. It was all rusty, damaged, & considered by many to be old junk. In my mind, all I could see was the beauty of the transformed piece. I just couldn't wait to take my new find home.
As I was driving home, I just kept thinking about that huge piece of metal in the back of my car. What is it about this thing??? It's just rusted metal. Then, it finally hit me…..I am that piece of metal in the back of my car! I am that old, rusty, damaged piece of junk that God chooses to crown with His love, grace, & mercy. I am so very GRATEFUL for the Lord's transforming power in my life. God no longer sees MY "damage" & "rust". Praise the Lord, I AM REDEEMED!
