unfinished

I FINISHED!

a project that i began more than 5 years ago. i got very close to done and got injured. once healed, i never went back. today, i finished. it is a birthday present for my sister that i know she will love. she has admired it in its unfinished glory in my garage for these past many years and laughs at the fact that it’s still sitting there. her birthday is this week, so i decided to make it a priority.

there are many unfinished projects in our lives: children, laundry, cleaning, organizing, pictures, the list could go on for days. but how often are we frustrated in ourselves? the choices that we make that we think we know better, but then make the wrong choice anyway.

OUCH! Paul had that one right! here’s the thing, tho, WE are UNFINISHED! how glorious is that? we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance so that we would walk in them. {Ephesians 2:10} so God is not done with us yet. He has not shelved us in the garage to finish on a later date when He is less busy. He is working on us every day to mold us into the people that He is making us to be. yes, we do fall short each day, but as you see the work He is doing and has yet to do, can you imagine how glorious it will be when we’re done?!

Today i prayed for all the unfinished pots. i pray that you will see the work, the time, the love, the discipline that God is pouring into your life each moment today.

i pray that you will be filled to overflowing, that you might share this grace and understanding with the other unfinished pots in your life. may God bless you abundantly as you traverse these broken edges and chipped pieces into the completeness that He has for you and for others!
