Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Behind the Scenes

This afternoon we walked by a shielded-off lot where a sign announces that a tall building will rise.  It’s been like that for a long time and we haven’t seen anything yet rising above that barrier.  However, this afternoon, through a break in it, we could see a deep hole.  So something IS happening there!  Before they can build up, they have to dig down deep.

What is going on inside me—or someone I observe—might look like nothing.  No observable progress.  But maybe God is already digging, laying the foundation for something amazing that will suddenly become visible.   I wonder what God’s doing in me and what his plans are.  I do want to cooperate, make this as painless as possible, and later on revel in the result.  Maybe like a make-over.  We have God’s guarantee that this will happen:

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.                   Philippians 1:6
