Mags is right, I can find a blog is many things yet God spoke to me this morning with our similarities to used roll of toilet paper. An empty, brown, used-up, and left over toilet paper tube. If we're honest with ourselves, we all have moments in our life when we feel like we're not good enough and are nothing more than a used up representation of what we used to be.
BUT, this is NOT TRUE! We are children of God, the sons and daughters of a king, THE King - the Father of Heaven, Son of God, and Holy Spirit. You my friend, are a prince or princess to the Holy King, God. Before He even created the world He loved and thought about you and I.
Whether you realize it or not, you are not an accident and when God looks at you ~ He sees a full roll of toilet paper clothed in His love, righteousness, and His gifts.
This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.
He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.
He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure.
And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth.
Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan."
You are a prince.
You are a queen.
You are a child of God.
You are a roll of toilet paper waiting to be unrolled. We are humans and in life there will be struggles, trials, temptations, loss, sickness, and the unthinkable. But instead of focusing on the messy things of life, use the strength of Christ because "I (you) can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (us)" Philippians 4:13.
Instead of wasting paper to wipe your tears, use it to rid yourself of the yuck in life. You are designed for so much more - throw the used paper away but remember at the core is the more than a toilet paper roll, you are a prince or princess and God only sees you as the pure, white, and new roll of toilet paper when you trust your life to Him.
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit
or a bride with her jewels.
Isaiah 61:10 NLT
Now if we are children, then we are heirs heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
1 Peter 2:9
