In Paraguay a chamber orchestra of 20 children uses instruments fashioned out of recycled materials from a landfill, performing the music of Beethoven, and Mozart, Henry Mancini and the Beatles. The sounds of a classical guitar come from two big jelly cans. Used X-rays serve as the skins of a drum set. Bottle caps work perfectly well as keys for a saxophone. Check out this clip from an upcoming documentary.
Amazing, huh. Out of garbage something beautiful is created. And, that’s exactly what God can do with you and me. Out of the garbage that is your life he can create something original and beautiful…a new you! Life can become part of a landfill, trash just taking up space. God takes that life and somehow recreates that rubbish into a person headed in the right direction. Then, he sticks by to keep you on the right path.
It takes your breath away just thinking about what God can do with your life. Think today about choosing not to be part of the landfill, but to allow God to make you part of his orchestra.
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians
