I've been eyeing all of the cool mugs decorated with Sharpie markers on Pinterest lately and finally decided to try my hand at it, only I experimented on a small plate first. I simply handwrote the message and then added some decorative dots. Super easy!
One of my favorite songs they sing at my church is Gungor's Beautiful Things. It is truly a beautiful reminder how God can take all of our shattered dreams, our big mistakes, our disappointments, our pain and sadness and restore them into things of beauty ... if we give them to Him.
I feel like God whispers to me through the simple reminder on this plate. I may feel like my dreams lie shattered in broken pieces at my feet right now, but as long as I give those pieces to God, they'll be redeemed into something far greater. I just need to be willing to let go of the pieces so He can make them into something new.
