Yes. It is true. I am a bottom feeder. I relish in the act of scavenging for items that have been cast aside, discarded and unwanted. I feel a sense of fulfillment when reclaiming an hidden treasure or a tattered relic from a rummage pile. Though once forgotten, these salvaged scraps take on a whole new life when polished, cleaned or mended. What do you feed on? Could it be the hunt for the newest sale at the mall? Or what about the search for a new exotic vacation hot spot? Myself, I am starved for the chance to track down more trails of reclaimed treasure and rummage piles. Can I ever be satisfied? Definitely not. My flesh may be starved for leftovers for a life time! But my soul...my soul is famished for more than just a surface scrubbing. My spirit hungers for a deep cleansing and a need to be reclaimed from lost love. Scavenging may be my passion but there is One more thorough in His probings than myself. His name is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the ultimate Scavenger. He is the only One who can truly delve deep below the surface to cleanse us from our filth.
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
1 John 1:9
I have been scavenged by my Savior's Love.
