“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.”
Two things I know – 1. There is a God. 2. I am not Him.
Do you have a list of uncompleted tasks that seem to slip away? There are needs at work, house chores, bucket lists, and unfinished dreams that never get completed! I have two unfinished compositions that I have worked on for over thirty years: one is a children’s musical and one is a student musical. I have bits and pieces of songs and dialogue that spring out of my brains from time to time, but the completion of these compositions alludes my grasp.
I look around and wonder at the grandeur of God’s creation, His love for us, His plan for us, and His mercy and grace. His completion from beginning to end is staggering to the soul.
When are we finished with God’s plan for us? If you’re not dead, God’s not done. Let’s be aware of God’s movement and presence in our lives as He molds us ever closer to His image.
As for my next dream and goal.
I’m giving up eating chocolate for a month. Sorry, bad punctuation. I’m giving up! Eating chocolate for a month!
