what a mistake!

And we know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”  Romans 8:28

The note was short -- “can you use other side? made a mistake.” What amounted to a big mistake for her was a gold nugget for the Media Center.   We loved getting the several hundred typo sheets since we thrive on recycled paper for our printers… and our stack was nil. Her mistake equaled perfect timing for us.

God, sometimes i feel like a mistake… making bad decisions, acting selfishly, speaking angrily.  Oh, how i wonder how You put up with me!  What good am i riddled with such sin? Don't You just want to toss me out? Yet, i do believe Your Holy Word and trust i am still a work in progress.  I rest in the fact You will never leave me nor quit working in me.  Thank You for not letting anything go to waste, even mistakes.  Thank you for helping me share what we go through together to give strength, wisdom and hope to others.  You truly use everything for the good and for Your glory.

Have a forgiven-filled day!
