February Devotions ~ The Glass Beach

The Glass Beach            February 2021

There is a beach near Fort Bragg, California covered with smooth colored pieces of glass and pottery.  Between 1905 and 1967 it was an active dump for garbage.  In 1967 it was closed.  Pounding waves broke down the glass and pottery into small, smooth pieces that came back on shore often in jewelry quality – hence “Glass Beach.” 

Don’t you sometimes feel like that piece of glass on Glass Beach before it is refined?  You are broken and rough – not good for much of anything.  How can you be like that smooth, beautiful piece of glass and be at peace in your heart and soul?

You can’t do this yourself?  Prayerfully, turn your eyes on Jesus and look to God’s Son right now.  Put your faith in Him.  He loves you so much.  Jesus forgives all your sins.  Yes, He died for you on the old rugged cross – yes, He died for you and arose three days later to take away your sins.  As you yield to Jesus, He takes the sharp edges and shapes us all to be more like Him.

Just ask Him into your heart.  He will begin to smooth off the rough edges in your life, keep refining you, loving you and staying with you forever and ever.

Romans 10:9 NIV “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord. And believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
