From Rugs to Riches

I got the wise idea to clean our rug. I thought I would just be able to lay it down in the tub and soak it. However, as I ran water over it, the water turned brown. I knew I first had to rinse it until the water was clear before soaking would do any good. After about 30 minutes of constant rinsing, I was able to lay it down and soak. The texture of the rug was so rough and it rubbed off the top layer of skin on my fingers. As I looked at my bleeding fingertips, I wondered if this was what they meant by the saying “work your fingers to the bone.”

Then, I asked the Lord what He was trying to show me and this was His response. “There is no amount of work you can do to earn righteousness. It was paid for with My blood on the cross. Though your sins were like scarlet, I have made them white as snow. Rejoice in Me, as I have clothed you with the garments of salvation and covered you with the robe of righteousness. Receive these gifts and acts of love and go testify to all those who have ears to hear.”

I am a daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I am humbled that He calls me His own! I am learning to walk more boldly and confidently in who He has created me to be. My prayer is others will come to know Jesus as their Savior, identify with who they are in Him so they too can walk out the calling He’s places on their lives!
