Mornings With God

Commit your future to the Lord! Trust in him, and he will act on your behalf.

[Ps 37:5]

Our affairs are forever getting tangled, like threads in a child’s hands, and we cannot straighten out the tangles ourselves. We cannot see how anything beautiful or good can come out of our poor living or our feeble striving. Our days are full of disappointments, and our night’s rest is broken by anxieties. Yet it is the Christian’s privilege to commit all his life’s tangles into the hands of Jesus Christ. He can take our broken things and build them up into beauty.

One of the finest windows in a great cathedral is said to have been made out of the fragments of broken glass which the workmen had thrown away as worthless. A skilful hand gathered them up and wrought them into lovely form. Christ can take our failures, our mistakes, our follies, our fragments of living, even our sins, and make them into beautiful life and character.
