This is what the message means to her:
"I am a little pencil in God’s hands. He does all the thinking. He does all the writing. And sometimes it is really hard because it is a broken pencil and he has to sharpen it a little more.” — Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa’s words found me in a season where my faith is being tested and I am agonizing over the question: “Is Your love truly stronger?” If I’m being honest, I feel like I am being crushed. My old wounds are constantly trying to blind me and harden my heart, and quite frankly, I am tired. I’m afraid I’m losing this battle.
Through this time, however, I have been encountering the fatherly love of God. I am discovering that his comfort, in this season, comes in a disciplinary complexion wearing gentle reminders and commands.
He reminds me, “Mercy is falling,” and commands me, “Lift up your hands. Receive it now.”
Then, he reminds me, “I am your defender,” and commands me, “Just praise.”
Again, reminds me, "I am the author of your life,” and commands me, “Declare me as Lord over your life.”
And again, he reminds me, “I care A LOT. You are in careful hands,” and commands me, “Surrender. You can trust me.”
I may be struggling right now, but I rest, reassured that God is the one sharpening me—breaking me apart, softening my heart, and opening my eyes to see that he is shaping my life. God is faithful, and he will give me faith.
