God's Chisel - * WHAM *

I had a friend send me a link to a skit she wanted me to see. She thought I'd like it. She was right. She knows me well,... though I wish I didn't identify with it SOOOO much.

I am sure God and I have had several of these conversations at one point or another. I've been caught playing the "You're not God" game. I've attempted to carry on conversation longer than necessary, thinking that it would delay the work He wanted to accomplish in my life. On more than one occasion, I've been told "That's called control", and been asked "Do you see what you're doing?"

Yet, the thing that touched me the most deeply was when God was explaining about discipline and empty wells. By chiseling away at those bits of me that are not Christ-like, He helps me not return to the empty wells hoping to become filled.

I also found much hope in the promise He spoke: "This faith that I am producing will become mature". I just need to trust Him.

Chisel away, God..... Chisel away. I am willing.
