Getting Rid of the Yucky Stuff

Posted on: 7-15-112011

I saw this on Facebook a couple of days ago and thought I would share.

Mary Gaspard McMillan wrote: A woman was asked what it was like to be a Christian. She replied: It is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch, brings you in and washes all the dirt off of you. He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff, and removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a smiling face and puts His light inside of you for all the world to see.

Although this isn’t exactly how He does it, this is a pretty good picture of what our Father does for us!  We will never find a more amazing love than the love that He bestows on us every single day!  And while the process of having the “yucky” stuff scooped out may be painful at times, it is always worth it!  Trust Him to know exactly what you need and when you need it!  Before long, you will find yourself with a smile on your face and a light inside of you that nothing or no one can put out.

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

 2 Corinthians 5:17
