When my nephew started off to kindergarten, he often brought home his drawings. Each time, my sister (his mother) admired the pictures and hung them on the refrigerator. But one thing started bothering her. All the pictures were drawn with only black and brown crayons. Fearing a problem and not wanting it to get worse, she decided to take him to a Godly counselor.

The godly man delicately went to work, asking my nephew many questions and talking with him extensively. But everything seemed perfectly normal. The meetings continued for two weeks, yet my nephew continued to bring home art drawn with only black and brown crayons.

Frustrated at not being able to get to the root of the problem the Godly counselor decided to give my nephew some paper and a box of crayons to be able to observe what happened.

My nephew promptly opened the box of crayons and exclaimed, "Oh, Boy! A new box of crayons! At school we only have old boxes. The only ones left in mine are black and brown!"

Does it sometimes feel to you that the only thing left in your life are the dark colors of black or brown? Jesus CAN change your life or circumstances...

To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. That they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. -Isaiah 61:3

Jesus WANTS to change your life or circumstances...

Jesus stood and cried, saying, If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him. -John 7:37

And Jesus IS changing your life and circumstances!

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose... For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 8:28,38
