God uses the scraps...

I've been hard at work today on stuff for a trunk show in a couple of weeks and our Christmas Boutique in December! I'm so thankful that my husband is "between jobs" and can be Mr. Mom while I get some much needed work done before my parents get into town tomorrow! YAY!!

As I was working...I was thinking about the scraps that I use to create things. Sometimes the tiniest piece of felt or fabric can become something. It's all useful.

Sometimes I feel like I have very little to offer the Lord, like my remnant is so small...

But, the beauty of a Restoring God is that He uses the small talents we have, the small giftings, the small capacities...and He does the work in us to create something useful. We are lovingly stretched and pruned so that we are capable of holding more, being responsible for more, and have more authority.

We ALWAYS have something to give away to others. ALWAYS.

The little or a lot that He has given you in this season is needed in the world. 

Release your blessings today! Take the small scraps you have and let the Lord create something lovely. Offer up what you have to Him. 

Those who use their talents wisely and multiply their blessings will one day hear....

"You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master." Matthew 25:21
