Poured Out

My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers, is one of my favorite books. A quote in today's devotional really spoke into my heart:

"If we are ever going to be made into wine, we will have to be crushed - you cannot drink grapes. Grapes become wine only when they have been squeezed."

I tried to come up with some good images of wine being poured out but they only made me want to drink it. I quit drinking five years ago, so instead I thought of juice...

Then I saw this...

Imagine how creative God can be with us when we allow ourselves to be squeezed and poured out for his purposes!

Sometimes he squeezes us just to refresh others...

Sometimes he squeezes us to put us on display and send us out into the world...

How about you? Are you allowing yourself to be squeezed for His sake?


  1. Why, yes I am.... sometimes more comfy than others!

  2. I love the pictures!! What a great post :)
