So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 ESV
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 ESV
Driving around the roads and highways of north Texas (okay, all of Texas) over the last 30 years I am increasingly convinced road construction will never be completed. Will I-35 ever NOT be under construction? Probably not. Does it drive you as crazy as it does me?
That’s how I feel sometimes about myself, too. I know God has to work on me to bring about completion of His plan for who I am to be, chopping off the bad and chiseling away the less good to be replaced by best. This process of continually taking off the old self to put on the new self as I become more and more like Him is hard! Many times I cry out to Him for a break from transformation. I wish during those times I could put out a sign that says, “Temporarily Closed for Construction.” Instead, God calls me to press on, to move forward and shine His light through the challenges.
Thank you each for being part of my community as we all put one foot in front of the other to to step out in faith to the glory of God.
