"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

WORN OUT VENDING PARTS


This is a re-post worth sharing again. I remember when the Holy Spirit took hold of me and began writing the following through me:

All I ever wanted in life was to be loved, approved and accepted by all. Unfortunately, I would have to become what I thought others would like me to become. I was a regular vending machine. Push whatever buttons that would please this one, and then push another to please that one, and yet another and another and so on and so on.

There came a day after many many many years, my vending machine's inner parts started wearing down. They just could not operate to maximum capacity anymore. When you would press one button, the light would go out and nothing was dispensed. My parts wore out. I realized, this is not going to work any more. My vending machine needed to go into the shop!

One day, after bringing my vending machine into a reputable repair shop, my old inner parts were brought out and looked at. The many buttons that graced the front of my machine were slowly being whittled down. Was told this process takes a while to complete and to be patient. There are some days in the whittling process where it is very painful. Not as flexible as it once was. Still, the repair shop hammers away, molds and re-shapes in order to fine tune my dispensing machine for that one day where it can be displayed again. This time, afresh and independent! Standing alone with only "one button" to push.....

"ME."

  1. I still have trouble finding the 'me' button. I think it's covered in dust, so it's not so obvious.

    Thanks for sharing

  2. I was just thinking about this this morning. It's nice to have a fellow companion that is farther along. It gives me hope!

    Thank you. :)

  4. Oh, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this JBR!!! This is EXACTLY me - I was such a shell of a person for a long time and now I feel free to be me and it is such a blessing. But you are right - the whittling process sure can be painful!

    Thanks for sharing this. : )

  6. The "Me" button is the one to aim for indeed. It's impossible to please everyone and make everyone love you no matter what you do. You just have to be yourself, be who you are. Some will like you and approve of you and some won't but that's OK.

  7. I like this analogy. Several weeks ago as I was falling asleep I the picture of vending machine was in my mind. I know God was attempting to deliver me a message.
