Sunday like being a Pumpkin

Have you heard this before?  
I can't take credit for the comparison--but I love the message!
Believing…is like being a Pumpkin
Take your pumpkin from the patch, wash off all the dirt
{we come just as we are—Jesus does the cleaning up.}

Cut open the top of the pumpkin
{We we open our hearts to Him-
He knows all our hidden thoughts and inner workings.}

Scoop out all the yucky stuff from inside.  
{Christ does the same to our hearts—
scooping out all the greed, hate, doubt, fear…
stuff we don’t like to touch…etc.}
Carve a smile in the pumpkin
{He lives in our hearts and gives us a new smiling face.}
 Place a candle inside for the world to see.  
{God is the light in our life. He lights up our path and purpose. 
His truth is the light in a dark world. 
He desires for our light to shine out to the world 
that others may know His saving grace too.}

Are you His pumpkin?

May God bless you richly during this beautiful fall season!


  1. Some ladies and I were just discussing this today as we were decorating for our fall festival that we are having tomorrow. In the past, we have someone demonstrate this to the children and showing them a great lesson :) Have a blessed weekend!

  2. Aimee, this is such a beautiful post. I pray that I am a light each and everyday. I tell my daughter before she gets out of the car in the school line every morning to be a light for Jesus. We all need to allow Jesus to shine through us. I am so thankful to have you as a blogging friend. Not many bloggers are open about their faith. Thank you for being a light for Jesus! Have a blessed Sunday!


Thank you for making my day and leaving a comment! :o)
