Dung and Donuts: Believing the Best

I must admit it is a far stretch of the imagination. It actually requires a deep sleep, maybe even a trance to conjure up this combination. Well, I do sleep and dream a lot. In my dreams I see things that don’t make a lot of sense. I see a recipe of turning dung into donuts. Not literally, mind you, but essentially that is the gist of my dream. Taking something that is not only discarded as refuse, but disgustingly worthless to every sensibility.

However, when I view these very things through the eyes of faith, I see the incredible happen.

It is just such incredible things that come to pass, that make me fall asleep and dream again.
I have seen young boys and girls who were sniffing glue, digging through heaps of garbage for food, and yes, even smearing dung on passerby’s on the streets in an effort to coerce them to give them money. I now see these very same boys and girls now young men and women wearing clean clothes, carrying school books and talking about how they will go to college and vocational training. They are learning computer skills, animal husbandry, farming, and a variety of life skills. They are studying Bible and memorizing verses of scripture. They are receiving counsel from a trained professional and learning to forgive their parents, siblings and neighbors of the past evils.

Only God can mix the vision of dung and donuts. Something disgusting can be transformed into something desirable.

Believe. Have faith. God can use dung to bring forth a good yield in our lives.

Lu 13:8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
