Our house has become a Lego Land for the past week! Our friends, Doug and Leanna bought Nate a submarine set of Legos when we were in WV last week and he has been playing with it on the dining room table. Abby decide to bring out her big tub of Legos and now there is a small city built in the dining room! I really don't mind them, even though we have a "no toys in the dining room" rule most of the time.

I was looking at the legos this morning and it got me to thinking about how God takes the small seemingly unorganized parts of my life and molds it to fit into HIS plan. HE makes me useful even when I feel very much like a small plastic molded lego. The cool thing is when HE is ready to build me into something else, HE can take all the pieces apart and what looks like a great big mess, HE molds into something else that HE is able to use for HIS glory. I kinda feel like all the parts laying on the table waiting for HIM to create in me a work and its hard to wait and see what that masterpiece will be.

I don't like change very much and yet that is what I feel we have been doing so much of the last few years, kinda like all my lego pieces are just laying out there on the table and I am waiting for God to reveal HIS plan for our lives and as I wait (sometime more patiently than other times), I am filled with the reassurance that God is the master planner/potter/creator and HE will, IN HIS TIME make me exactly what HE wante me to be!

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me.

What an awesome post! It actually moved me to tears. I don't think I'll look at a lego again without thinking of your thoughts. :)
