When I was in class one day, we got to go to a lab where they had cadavers to work on. It was being able to practice intubation and other things. Well, as I was washing my hands afterwards I realized a very powerful lesson. I noticed I had my bracelets on ,which I wear everywhere, and I was concerned with what I got on them. I started to scrub them and then thought I better throw them away. Well I did and then something dawned on me. Does Jesus throw us away when we get dirt on us? Does He just say oh well I can get more bracelets. Well I thought I would just replace them with new ones. When Jesus gets a hold of us and we are full of dirt, He doesn’t throw us away, He cleans us and wipes us clean. We are the same but clean in His eyes. What would happen if we didn’t have that chance and just got thrown away each time we did something wrong. There would be no one left. We aren’t perfect by any means. Thank the Lord He loves us enough to just cleanse us and keep us close. When you see a dirty rag or dirty rubber band bracelet just remember , it washes clean. Jesus is in the business of cleaning and renewing things. He restores us!
Sometimes you notice when things just happen on a day when your stressed or just feeling down. It just reminds me of how God loves us and sends little reminders to help us through the day , that we aren’t alone. This little guy just flew into my car while I was driving. I even tried to shew him out of the window. When he wouldn’t leave me, I realized how wonderful it was to see him up close. Just like this butterfly Jesus stays with us even when we are trying to shew Him away.
Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
