What do you do with something that’s broken? Mend it – fix it or toss it? (I’d probably toss it!)
God creates from it. He will take a broken dream and discouragement – and create something new from it.
For instance, I had a best-selling pattern, with nary a complaint. People were lovin’ it.
Until one day…
It all came to a screeching halt with a devastating review.
I hung my head in shame. After all, the pattern in question did have a glitch. One I quickly corrected!
But, my confidence was torn to shreds. I came close to quitting what I’ve found enjoyment and purpose in.
I had big plans for the new quilter’s devotionals! Like this one ~ it almost got shoved back into the desk.
Registration is now open for the Seeds of Love 2023 Quilter’s Devotional Journey.
Yes, I could quit.
And give up this crazy notion of quilter devotionals. Believe me – I was tempted.
Or… I could take this dream that looks broken and bring it to the Lord for mending.
The months ahead were spits and spurts of enthusiasm followed by weeks of discouragement.
God is good.
He didn’t let me stay in that broken place of discouragement – instead, he ignited a fire of passion for writing and this series.
Don’t give up on the broken “dishes” (aka dreams) in your life. Give them to God for mending.
Until next time, enjoy your day and the journey
Sharing God’s love through creative works.

Del, I am soooo glad that you didn’t give up. Your writing inspires me and reminds me of God’s love and forgiveness. And your Seeds of Love Devotional quilt along came at a perfect time for me. Thank you so much for all you do!
I’m so glad it was perfect timing for you. It was for me too. Will be writing about that in the weeks to come!
