"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord." 2 Corinthians 3:18
If today, you feel as if you have totally failed your family, or your boss, or your friends, or your church, or your God, there is hope.
We have all been in office buildings, banks, or hotels that were been renovated. There were such signs posted as: "Please be patient. Renovation in progress to produce something new and wonderful." Thinking of such signs, there are times I wish I could hang one around my neck for my family, friends, and fellow workers to see.
This reminds me also, of two songs the Gaithers have written: "Something Beautiful"; and the one for the children: "He's Still Working On Me". Therefore, as long as I have life, I have hope that God can and will make improvements.
Chiseled on the entryway to a little chapel on a back road in the Highlands of Scotland are some challenging words in Gaelic. Translated into English they still carry the customary directness and candor of the Highland Scot: "Come as you are, but don't leave as you came."
A paraphrase of Jesus' gracious word could read: "Come to Me. I will never cast you out. But don't you expect to remain the same."
So if you have failed, know that He loves you just as you are, but He loves you too much to leave you that way.
May the One who can truly transform, bless you today!!!
