I love weekends because that means more family time, more farm time, and more time for rejuvenation, junkin’ and Jesus!
And this is exactly what my weekend will hold. My husband and I (and our kiddos) love to go ‘junkin’. Throughout our weekends we have met some of the most amazing individuals! Many, many times do we have the opportunity to minister and pray with others.
We’ve nicknamed ourselves The Joyful Junkers! Joyfully showing Jesus everywhere we go… (Lord knows He has to help me with this one throughout the last few weeks with my AC being out in my vehicle with 100 degree temps!)
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. – Colossians 3:17
So my challenge to you this weekend is this:
WHATEVER YOU DO…give God the glory and honor and SHOW JESUS everywhere you go!
I love taking something old and useless and making it beautiful and useful again!
Here is one of my recent projects…I wish I had a picture of my “before” so that you could see the difference but just imagine this piece where the seller almost couldn’t give it away…but I seen the potential!
This chair is amazing! I call it a Low Rider Comfort chair. I simply painted the old wood turquoise (including the strip of material on the front of the seat) and then recovered the cushion with an old hand stitched quilt top.
Tonight I have another project (or 2 or 3 or…well, if you know me there is no telling) in mind…so stay tuned!
Now, you know I can’t just write a post about bringing life to old, dead things without at least a few words about the powerful LIFE given to us by Jesus Christ!
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! – 2 Corinthians 5:16-17
Friend, just like this old chair just thrown on another porch …we serve a God of restoration, a God of healing, and a God that is living!
Christ sees life in you…Christ sees potential in you…Christ sees His masterpiece!
