Recycled



Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17


Isn't it amazing that when God agrees to take on our messed up, garbage-filled lives and make us into new creations, that He knows exactly what has redeemable value and what needs to go immediately?

I'm forever grateful that God saw enough value in me to pull me out from the garbage and breathe new life into my soul. By the grace of God, I am a new creation!

I have been saved a little over a year and I feel God "recycling" me over and over. I'm not perfect yet, but I'm on my way.

Rebecca,
About the ABC bible verses...
I used to teach kindergarten and we learned a verse a week then with the Alphabet. But...My friend Jill told me of a book and I bought it, which is where I am taking the verses from now. The name of the book is MY ABC Bible Verses by Susan Hunt. I believe I ordered it on Ebay or Amazon. So worth the money!

I never thought of this verse with quite this type of illustration, but it is so very true! Great!

Happy WFW!

Beautiful! I love that scripture! Isn't it amazing that He doesn't leave us where we are, but loves us enough to mold us. I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
