A Beautiful Work in Progress...

Two and a half years ago I stood at our garage door, looking doubtfully at the simple skeleton frame of the wooden boat that my husband was building. He showed me the detailed plans he was working from. He produced a picture of what it would look like one day. I was still doubtful. Could these bare wooden bones really become a boat? Last month my husband and I rowed our beautiful boat on Reeds Lake...exactly as my husband had purposed. One day, she will have a sail and a motor- she is not quite finished yet.
Do you ever doubt your calling into ministry? Do you ever doubt that you can complete the work that God intended? You are a beautiful work in progress. You are fully able to become exactly what God has purposed. He's just not finished with you yet.
He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. Phil 1:6

  1. This also made me think of the valley of dry bones but God had plans to breathe new life into them.

    Anyway - are you going to get Dad on that boat?!

  2. Excellent thought about the dry bones Pauline.....not sure we can get Dad on the boat though!
