Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Under Construction

Every day we walk past a house that used to look pretty sad.  But someone had a plan, money, and patience.  As grand structures began to rise behind that wall, we could tell that something major is going on.  Little by little, it’s beginning to resemble the grand and beautiful plan that is now posted outside the gate.

House under construction

I am like that house.  I belong to an Owner who has taken possession of me and is working on me patiently over the long haul until I will someday be just like His blueprint for my life.  While my physical body is showing the effects of age, my spirit is being renewed to be more like Jesus as I submit to His Inner Beauty Treatments.

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)
