05/05/18 Weekend Grif.Net – Glowstick

Brenda shared, “I was in =
Dollar Tree last night and there was a lady and two kids behind me in =
the LONG line. One was an older boy, one was a =
toddler.

 

The bigger one had a pack of =
glowsticks and the baby was screaming for them so the Mom opened the =
pack and gave him one, which stopped his tears. He walked around with it =
smiling, but them the bigger boy took it and the baby started screaming =
again.

 

Just as the Mom was about to =
fuss at the older child, he bent the glowstick and handed it back to =
the baby. As we walked outside at the same =
time, the baby noticed that the stick was now glowing and his brother =
said "I had to break it so you could get the full effect from =
it."

 

I =
almost ran because l could hear God saying to me, "I had to break =
you too show you why I created you. You had to go through it so you =
could fulfill your purpose."

 

That little baby was happy just =
swinging that "unbroken" glowstick around in the air because =
he didn’t understand what it was created to do which was =
"glow". There are some people who will be content just =
"being" but some of us that God has chosen, we have to be =
"broken". We have to get sick. We go through divorce. We have =
to bury our spouse, parents, best friend, or our =
child.

 

In those moments of =
desperation, God is breaking us. But when the breaking is done, then we =
will be able to see the reason for which we were created.  And =
glow.”
