God is Our Paperclip

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  Colossians 1:17

A few weeks ago I did a craft class for the teen girls at my church.  We used clips to make photo holders...
{This "photo holder" has a recipe card instead.}

For our devotional before the start of the class I talked to the girls about how God is like our paperclip or binder clip.  He holds us together when we feel like we are falling apart.  We can't hold ourselves together.    We are merely the mess of paper lying on the floor.  It is God that becomes our paperclip.  One of the girls in the class made this...

What a true statement!  We are all broken.  Life does that to us, but we need not fear, He holds us together.
