Power tools are useless unless they are connected to the power source. They may work as a doorstop or a hammer, but unless they are plugged in, they cannot be used for their intended purposes. We are like those tools. We may fill a need here or there; we may have a seemingly meaningful job or life, but unless we are connected to the ultimate power source, our potential is quite limited.
While He has equipped us to be a power tool, He also knows when we need to rest. God cherishes the times when we just sit and have tea with Him. It may represent a time of the day, such as our quiet time, or it may be a season in our life, such as unemployment, retirement, or even illnesses. These are the times when He makes himself real to us because we can “Be still and know that He is God.”

What people are saying about “Teapots and Power Tools”
“I love Keri’s writing style – gently telling stories of God humbling her and teaching her things, and always taking it back to Scripture. The chapters are like a phone call from a friend when you need help getting your eyes off yourself and remembering that God is a good Father.”
“As somewhat of a “handywoman” myself, I found so many things to smile about while working my way through this devotional. I appreciate the approach the author uses of relating Biblical principles to things I can relate to, because now when I reach for super glue or enjoy tea with friends, I am reminded to check my spiritual life. Am I overdoing it? Am I utilizing the right tools? Am I making sure I’m refilling my cup? I find this approach stays with me longer than a simple Scripture study. So so good.”
