Grace Brings Purpose to Mistakes

After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.”—John 6:12 (NLT)

This beautiful verse reminds us that every part of you—your mistakes and problems—play a role in shaping you into an understanding, powerful person. All of your pain and failures equip you to minister to others in similar situations.

Dear Lord, help me use the leftover pieces of my past for Your purpose.
