We have a group of 56 people here from Brook Hill Christian School in Tyler,Texas and a group of 8 Christian sorority sisters from North Carolina University in Wilmington.
We took a picture of the baby dorm children for the Christmas card. There are only 27 children in the baby dorm because the courts have removed so many children. When we built the baby dorm there were over 120 children.
A gentleman who owns an industrial machine company wanted to help us. There are 4 men here and they are taking the equipment in the kitchen apart and cleaning each of them. This is a great blessing.
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Galatians 4:19 “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.” So how is He formed in me?
Plato and Aristotle argued over how does a sculptor make a statue. Aristotle said Aristotle said “if a sculptor is going to form a sculpture he must look in to the unidentified stone. Marble or clay sees what it already is and cuts away everything that doesn’t look like it is supposed to be”.
If you are willing to sit still long enough God will make something out of your life. But you must submit to His removing everything that He knows should not be there. All of our imperfections will be snipped off and cast away.
For God to form us He must remove everything that should not be there. He has a plan for your life. He sees in you what it was you were created to be. But you have to allow Him to snip out the useless parts.
It is not easy to sit still for a trimming. He has a plan so let him snip away!
