My First Ever D.I.Y. Post!

Take a large binder clip

The kind you'd use to hold a bunch of sheets together.

Turn it upside down and it - voila!- becomes a note card holder!!

How amazed and impressed are you? :)

Every day we use all kinds of things as they were intended to be used. Binder clips bind paper, clothespins hold laundry, and a goblet holds liquid but all these things are not limited to just a single purpose. The binder clip becomes a note card holder, the clothespin keeps the bag closed and our chips fresh and the goblet becomes a luminary with the addition of a tea light candle.

And if we can be oh so very clever don't you think that God, the Creator of the Universe, can take what we're experiencing in life and use it for purposes far beyond our limited rationales?

"My thoughts are completely different from yours, says the Lord. And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine..." Isaiah 55:8

"Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope." Ephesians 3:20

How amazed and impressed are we going to be when we see what God is doing?!

Becky, I love how you tied this all together! God can take our messes and create something beautiful. Our purpose can be even greater than what we dream or imagine. Many blessings!
