Use What You Have

As we have been on the road we have learned to use what we have. We have been blessed with a house to use for about 6 weeks while we are visiting a church in MS. The house is unfurnished though. So some people from church helped with some things, but what we couldn't get, we just used what we had.

We didn't have a couch yet, but we made a sitting area for the first day.

We didn't have a mixing bowl, so we used a sauce pan to mix pancake batter.

We didn't have silverware, but plastic works just fine for a few weeks.

We didn't have a tv, but we can watch movies on our computer. 

As you look at your life, maybe you see the "we don't haves" more than what you do have. I want to challenge you to get creative. Jesus took spit to make mud to heal a blind man. Jesus took some fish and loaves and fed thousands. Peter and John didn't have money to give a beggar, but they healed his lameness. When God created the world, He started with nothing. 

So what do you have to use, and how will you use it to advance God's kingdom on earth?
