Blessed to be a pumpkin

Being a human being is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you
in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens you up, touches you deep
inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt,
hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His
light inside you to shine for all the world to see.

I've received this description a couple times in the past two weeks. I really like it because it speaks to me as to how God can come into your life, no matter what you've been through.

Before I accepted Christ, I felt like I was the bad, bruised pumpkin in the patch. Why would He want me?

But this reminds me that He loves us no matter what. He will lovingly pick you up and bring you home. With His love, you will be the most beautiful pumpkin ever.

So let your light shine for Him.
