Every so often our city has a “clean up day”. Residents place
their unwanted items and trash at curbside on a certain day
and the city clean up crew takes it away. Just before the
scheduled pick up, in almost any neighborhood, you will see
piles of trash, debris, and all kinds of stuff waiting to be hauled
away. What’s even more interesting is the number of
individuals who drive by and rummage through each pile
looking for something of value. Often times they’re looking for
discarded and neglected furniture pieces that can be repaired,
restored and sold at a profit. I’ve often thought about this
process and how quickly people discard things as junk and
having no future value, only for it to end up being a restored
treasure to another.
Whether it’s a repair or full restoration, if someone can restore
an old discarded chair and make it like new again, why not a
soul restored by the hand of it’s Maker?
- Psalms 51 verse 12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation;
and uphold me with thy free spirit.
25. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed,
saying, Who then can be saved?
26. But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is
impossible; but with God all things are possible.
