Kate and the whole hashtaggy gang. We: share.
This prompt is almost too perfect, because I’ve had something to share all day long.
I took the above picture at work. We use the “inprocess” labels to designate items that are…drumroll…in processing. They aren’t complete yet.
Usually I tuck these little labels into books without a second thought. But today my eyes were glued to that word. Inprocess. Incomplete.
“…the God who started this great work in you [will] keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.” – Philippians 1:6 (MSG)
I need to know that. I need to hear that. I need those words to soak into my very marrow. God is not finished with me. I haven’t out-sinned His grace and love. He isn’t going to chuck me into the garbage bin. He’s not going to walk away.
This is my great hope. This is the anchor of my life. God is real, He is here and He is working in, on, around and through me. He will smooth all the rough edges and remove everything that is not of Him. The work began in repentance and continues on the narrow way. It will never be finished this side of Eternity – and that is beautiful.
God is not finished with you, either. No matter who you are or where you are.
