Taking math this semester, requires me to use a pencil every day. I will say, I HATE using pencil. I don't like it. It, gets all over my hand, it disappears after a while from my work without an eraser. (Magically) And well, I just don't really like pencils, I much prefer the Ink Filled Pen, ready to glide upon my paper.
But, regardless, of my hate for pencils, I'm going to talk about them today. Not anymore about my hate of them, but about how they can relate to God.
What are some Characteristics of a pencil? It is made of wood, and at any time, can snap. It can come in many different colors, it must be sharpened several times, some are thicker and some are thinner. Pencils (obviously) have led inside of them, must be used by a human, to work. And most importantly of all it has an eraser.
When we are writing we all make mistakes. That's why we need the eraser to fix the number we wrote wrong on our math problem. The pencil is nothing however, without the writer writing away. Writing, or drawing on the smooth paper.
"I’m like a little pencil in His hand. That’s all. He does the thinking. He does the writing. The pencil has nothing to do it. The pencil has only to be allowed to be used."
Quote From Mother Teresa
God is the writer. God, our Father. Is the best of writers, which, writes our life, day to day. We fit into this by being the pencil. God will write away, our beautiful life. Sometimes, though, the pencil will leave a smudge, or not write clear, or it may even write its own story.
With that, God is the Eraser has well. He is always there to erase the mistakes cause by the pencil. God is there to take away our sins. He is the only one that can. Just like how and eraser, erases the mistakes. God, will forgive us, and bring us back onto the right story. God, will write the story HIS way. For he did chose THAT pencil didn't he? So that pencil must have something very important.
We always want control. We never want another, to be in control. For some reason, we always want to be the one in control. We want to do things our way, all the time, when we want. But, God, Our heavenly father, is the one in control, and that is one thing, we can't do anything about. We must continue making the decisions that God WANTS US to! He is the writer, so let him be.
Just like a pencil, at any time, we can snap, and become lost. We all come in different colors and at many times, we do need a sharpening in our faith, once we become dull. We all are filled with what God wants. For God, Our creator chose to write HIS plan with us! So, we always need a sharpened Faith, and become a pencil that will take a lot to snap.
We the pencil, must not create that smudge, or write that wrong number when solving a math problem, we must resist to take control. We must have Faith, and let God in control. God, is our creator and he LOVES us, so let’s let him. Let's let God, write that math equation right, and then he won't need to use that eraser.
