God Works with Wet Wood

...a little of OUR wet wood after yard work yesterday...
God likes to wet the wood 
before he sets it on fire. 
That way everybody knows 
who made it burn.  
(You might remember the story
from 1 Kings 18:33–38.)
I sure wish I could remember 
where I came across those lines...
I do that a lot.  
Scribble down something I KNOW
will be blog fodder one day...
Looks like today's the day 
for these two lines. 
John Flavel said the same thing, THIS way...
"Man's extremity is God's opportunity." 
I just KNOW I'm not the only one with some wet wood out here!


  1. Set that alter ablaze! Amen! Yes, wet wood AND a Gideon's fleece!

  2. I know at least one other person with wet wood . . . and I know her really well :)....And I'm also glad I know Him - the One who can do exceedingly abundantly more than I can ask or think! When I read your title, I knew this was a great post!

  3. Interesting analogy, and very truthful as well. :)

  4. I also have a little stack of wet wood. I enjoyed this post very much Rebecca... I do not remember hearing about wet wood before.

  5. I'm pretty glad that He can do marvelous things with little...

  6. You're right; you aren't the only one with wet wood! I love this quote, and that bible story. Thanks for your wisdom!

  7. You made me LOL on this one.... love the idea... the im-possibilities unless the One who Himself is a consuming fire 'flicks his bic'!

  8. It's good to know that when we put ourselves, much like green wood, in the Master potter's hands, He will mold us and make us into what He would have us to be.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  9. Oh, I like that quote! All glory to Him...none to the wood!

    (And thanks for being excited with me about my kitchen project! Your comment made me smile!)

    Blessings, Cheryl
