Work In Progress!
"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." Philippians 1:6 (ESV)
Today has been one of those days, you know, where the side of the bed you usually get up on has suddenly morphed into the 'wrong side' of the bed? Yeah...one of those days. I must have been body-snatched in the middle of the night. And yes, even after my morning dose of my liquid addiction, this foul version of me stuck around.
I need something stronger than the strongest espresso know to man. I need a heavy dose of Jesus Word! It never fails that when I'm most NOT myself, I will open up the Word of God and find that He already has the exact prescription I need. By the time I get to the second or third word, my heart is softening. By the time I finish, I am feeling more like the woman He wants me to be. Then our conversation is sweet and I remember exactly who I am - His child. And He is my faithful Abba Father.
Today, I am thankful for Philippians 1:6. I 'm thankful that He doesn't give up on me, no matter what. I am leaning on His promises. Especially that He will bring to completion what He began in me. He's not letting go because of a bad moment, or a bad day. He knows I'm a work in progress.
