Not used goods but good for HIS use.

A word of encouragement to every person -- man and woman, who has been married before or perhaps divorced multiple times, YOU ARE NOT USED GOODS.  If you are reading this post and have experienced the pain of divorce and feeling that God cannot or will not use you, please close your ears to the devil's lie.  God is the healer of our hearts and delights in bringing His children to complete restoration in Him.  Those that the world considers to be failures, God uses for His good. 

As in real estate, you continually appreciate in value to Him.  When the world inspects us, God already purchased us with no contingencies.  He is the best Investor around.  Think about it -- He bought with His blood the beat up, broken-hearted and battered.  When the remodeling is done though the renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2) we are transformed to do His will.  Our worth in the Kingdom of God has no price tag.  We become invaluable and our spiritual worth skyrockets.  Now that's the best return for any investor!

God took my mess and gave me a message. Allow the Lord to do the same for you!

GBY!  Barbara :)

We never know what will happen or why....regardless, good will rise from the experiences.

Hi Gary: Thanks for your post, I agree. God can take what the enemy meant for one's harm and turn it around for His good.  Barbara

Barbara: AMEN and AMEN! I am much better now that I am used goods than before when I was naive and undamaged. My ability to share, care, and understand comes from my journey. I think God uses us when we have been used and then healed to help with that work for others in His creation. Excellent message! -Pete
