Being confident of this that He who began a good work in you will carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. 
Philippians 1:6

What do you have on your “Someday, I’ll” list?  You know, something that sounds like a great idea or maybe something that you have even started. We are great starters, but not always great finishers. The good news is that God always finishes what He starts.

Have you ever watched a building under construction?  A tall fence may be built around the building site, but there are usually peep holes. You can look through the peep hole to see the work in process.

When God starts construction in us, He will complete what He starts in spite of the hang-ups, bad decisions, sins, and circumstances that we face. A Sunday Morning Bible School teacher in my church often says “and you can take that to the bank”. None of us is perfect. When you see us doing something or saying something that doesn’t remind you of Jesus, remember that you are just seeing us through a peephole. We are His work in progress.

I’m encouraged when I read the story of Genesis. As God finished each day of His creation, He proclaimed, “It is good”. That is every day until he created man, and then He didn’t say “It is good”. Do you know what He said?  Oh, yeah!  He said, “It is very good” (Genesis 1:31).

Okay, Ladies, let’s cut each other some slack being confident that our God has begun a good work in us. He’s not through. When you are tempted to say, “I wonder why she does that.” Just say, “Bless her little heart, she’s a work in progress”.

Dear Father, again I thank You for Your continuing love and discipline. Just when I start feeling “saintly”, I say or do something that humbles me. I am blessed learning how You loved and used others even as You continued Your work. Please use me. Amen

*Please be patient. God is not finished with me yet.
