Whenever there is a renovation going on the building looks a wreck. Things are ripped out and torn down. Signs are posted saying “Please excuse the mess” to placate those easily frustrated or uncomfortable with the changes. Some people speculate what the new building will look like while others might wonder if it will be more functional/useful to the community. The process is usually long, drawn out, tiresome, and demanding on those involved, yet the finished product (if completed by capable hands) far exceeds most expectations. The torn up mess is quickly forgotten as the vision is finally realized. As a believer, you might sometimes go through this same process, and while onlookers might look, gossip, and criticize you for your apparent state of disarray do not worry, doubt, or fear. Just go through the process resting in the capable and caring hands of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. He will beautify the meek. He will do a great work in you and through you if you allow Him to do so. Trust Him. Don’t begrudge the process!!

No matter your situation or circumstance don’t give in and don’t give up if you are a child of God!!! Keep the faith knowing that even if it doesn’t feel good to you (in the flesh) it is still working for your good and is good for you (in the spirit)!!! Stop looking at things with your natural eyes and judging, instead walk in the spirit. Change your perspective!! Trials may hurt, but they teach you humility, cause you to be more sympathetic and empathetic to those round about you, and draw you to your knees and ultimately to the foot of our Lord. Don’t get bitter instead allow your cross to make you better. Trust God. Keep the faith. It’s working for your good!!! God can and will do exceedingly, abundantly more than you can ever ask or think if you let Him!!!!
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
1Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
It’s working for my good!! It’s working for your good!!! All for his purpose and glory!!! Trust Him!!!
Jude 1:25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

In college I joined a sorority, and one of the words from one of our steps says, “This is a serious matter!”. Now, all these years later these words come to my remembrance, but for a different purpose to remind myself and others that our soul’s salvation is a serious matter!! It is a heaven or hell matter!! It is a life or death matter!! It is truly a serious matter!! So, what are you going to do about it? What are you doing to ensure you are a prepared person for a prepared place? This is no joke! This is truly a serious matter!! One day we must all give a report. One day we must all stand before the King of kings. I pray that each of us will be ready, for it is truly a serious matter!!
