Do you ever start projects that you don't finish? Do you get excited about starting a new project versus finishing one that has been shelved for sometime? Do you feel guilty about not finishing?
I can answer yes to all of the above questions. Sometimes I so frustrate myself with my lack of discipline to finish something or even my procrastination in starting something new.

I guess this is something we will continue to live with while we are on this earth, because we too, are in the process of becoming completed in Jesus. God is working in our lives to make us like Jesus. We are not finished and will not be completed until we reach our eternal destination. The uneasiness and uncomfortableness that come when we are in the midst of "not being finished"; may not be a "bad" feeling. Maybe, it is a reminder to turn our eyes off of ourselves and our current "projects" and onto the source and the one who sustains all of life. Could it be that we get too focused on our "projects" that we forget that this is not all there is too life?

Thank you Father God, for showing me again, that you are not in a hurry. You are not behind are right on time for the work that you are doing in me to transform me into becoming like Jesus.


  1. My wise sister, once again you've said it so perfectly and timely. Thank you for the reminder. As I was talking to God about this, He reminded me to remember that others are also not finished...He is working in their lives to make them like Jesus, too (or they don't have Him at all).
