Dented for Him

Recently I heard a story that I want to share with you.

When the game of golf began the balls were smooth, not like the dimpled balls we associate with the game now. After awhile it was found that once the balls were hit so much that they became dented, the balls went farther. That is how the golf balls got their current design.

This is the same with us. Life is not always going to be smooth. But when we use those dents for God, we can go far.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 
knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 
But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be 
perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 
James 1:2-4

Trials are hard. They can leave us dented and bruised. But using them for the glory of God brings Him honor.

  3. Oh I love this analogy of the golf ball. I've never heard it before, and it's so true!

  4. I've not heard that before either. What a great analogy! And I certainly have plenty of dents:)

  5. Beautiful!! Thanks so much for sharing this! Heaven knows I'm sporting some dents, but I pray God will use them to send me farther for Him! Blessings! <3
