Sandpaper of Life

Know that God brought you here on purpose? That it had to be His plan? That everything just seemed to fall in place? Then, oops, things suddenly didn’t seem so smooth? Every sentence is suddenly a question?

Are you familiar with sandpaper and know it’s function? There are many techniques, and God will use them all as needed. But generally it works best when the object is held still and the sandpaper does the work.

“Be still and know that I am God.” Ps 46:10

You are there on purpose. It is part of the plan. Hold still and let God work. Coarse paper for the tough work — ouch. Fine paper for the most intricate detail. Some sandpaper is so fine it doesn’t even feel like sandpaper. With its touch the surface becomes exceptionally smooth — and that is the point you must reach for the finish to look the best.

Trust Him when you place yourself in His hands. He will take you to where you need to be. Relax in His hands, and let Him do the work. It wasn’t a mistake just because things got a bit uncomfortable.
