Nothing but Dust Perfect Dust

As I sit here a million thoughts are running through my mind.  The are mainly over the devotions I have been reading this week.  I am rereading the devotional Who Can Find A Virtuos Woman?  31 Days for Women By Dr and Mrs. Jim Brown.  Day 2 talked about looking at the pattern and of course had us read Proverbs 31:10-31.  Proverbs 31 has always been my life's goal, but sadly I fall way short.  I was soon to find out an amazing truth the next day.  A truth that I had overlooked these 13 years of marriage.  I am Dust, simple, but true.  God is glorified in my imperfections II Chronicals 16:9 states that God wants to show Himself "strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him."  This means if we as wives, mothers, grandmothers are doing our best and our intentions are to please our husbands and obey.  Then God does and will show Himself through us.  Can you imagine us who are but dust loved, bought, & gloriously saved by God.  God, who has no boundaries.  God who had no beginning and certainly has no end.  This God loved us so much He sent His only begotten Son for us.
