What’s up blog fam!
I hope all is well in your world. Have you guys been working hard? Being productive? Budgeting? Dieting? Journaling? Exercising? Meeting those goals that you set at the beginning of the year? While some of you may be excelling at accomplishing what you’ve set out to get done, others may find themselves in a period of re-constructing. Listen, if you find yourself in the latter category, just know that you are not alone.
First off, let me say, if you are in a period of re-constructing, this is not a bad thing. In fact, this is the perfect place to level-up. If you’ve been feeling like you haven’t made much progress. STOP! If you’ve ran into a few potholes along the way, don’t get discouraged. You’re at a power-point in life!
A construction site is an important place. It’s usually taped off by caution tape or blocked off by bright orange cones. Everyone does NOT have access to it. There are specific people appointed to complete the assignment. Everyone’s not qualified to get the job done. Much like these construction zones, when we reach a place of re-constructing in our lives, God will place a hedge of protection all around us. The Lord protects us everyday, but it’s something special about being in a place where there is a particular “work in progress”. Certain friends may not have access to you. Certain family members may not have access to you. God will assign the right individuals to your life at the right time and He will appoint them to the proper areas that need rebuilding.
At a construction site, things tend to look a bit complicated particularly to those of us who have nothing to do with what’s actually going on. Have you ever walked or rode pass a construction site and tried to figure out what in the world they were doing? Did you find yourself driving a little slower, listening a little harder, or looking a little closer? I have! Well, this is true also in our everyday lives. There will be folks observing you. There will be folks trying to figure out what you have going on. To them, your life will be completely confusing and that’s all right. You are a “Work in Progress”. It was not meant for everyone to understand where you are in life. God is our Foreman. He is our Director! Let the onlookers keep watching God move on your behalf! Stay focused on what God is doing on the inside of you. His work will overflow. It is written, “…He that began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6 ).
This is your time to repair.
This is your time to reestablish.
This is your time to revamp.
Yes, there may be some construction work going on in your life but, your destiny still awaits you. You thought you were going to show up one way, but God is making you over. He is restoring you!
All of your hard work is going to pay off. Things may appear complicated right now. Your life may seem unorganized. Just remember, “all things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28).
So, if you’ve been worrying about not checking off everything you listed on your New Year’s Resolution list or your list of 2021 goals, STOP! Go back to the drawing board if you have too. Check in with your accountability partners. If things didn’t work out the way you thought they would, don’t be afraid to rebuild.
Don’t be afraid to recreate.
Don’t be afraid to remake.
Don’t get distracted by the spectators. Don’t lose focus on the work in front of you. Let God continue to work in and through Y.O.U.
