"..to be made new..to put on the new self created to be like God in righteousness and holiness" Ephesians 4:23,24.
We are in a new year, welcome to 2010. When I was a child in the 1960s, the thought of a year in the 2000s was something in Star Trek, far beyond the imagination of where man would go. And here we are.
Are you one who makes New Year resolutions? We are at the end of January, were you able to keep any of them?
I have been going through my craft closets and found a number of projects I hoped to start, several I started and set aside, some I started and didn’t like, some that I needed to get more material for.
I wonder if God looks at me like I do the items in my craft closet. In my life he has started many wonderful works, some of which I have stalled Him on and not completed. He has completed many works in me and there are many more in process. Some projects are not yet complete, waiting on God’s timing. I can rush through, but without God there are dropped stitches in my life. Luke 1:20 in the Message reads “Every word I’ve spoken to you will come true on time – God’s time”.
There are still many rows yet to knit in my life. A beautiful edging of crochet will be added. But not yet. God is still gathering materials and stitching my life together. But He doesn’t leave me in the closet, to pull out and work on occasionally. He is always in my life, working within me.
