There is an artist in
Uganda named Ruganzu Bruno Tusingwire. As a student in Kyambogo University in
the capital city of Kampala, he saw kids growing up in the slums who had no
safe places to play. He saw that the streets were littered with garbage, and
realized he had before him an inexpensive source of exactly the resources he
needed. He used garbage and plastic bottles lying in the streets, and
transformed them into playgrounds for kids to play on.
God wants to take the
brokenness of our lives and use it for his eternal purposes. Nothing we have
done can take us out of his reach or make it impossible for us to be used by
in the sky above or in the earth below--indeed, nothing in all creation will
ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ
Jesus our Lord.
