" You also are like living stones, and God is using you to build a spiritual house."
I'm in the middle of a Renovation Project with God...time for a 'Life Makeover'!
Are there cracks in your faith that need to be caulked and sealed?
Are there lights that need to be changed because you can't clearly see what God is doing in your life?
How about closets that need to be cleaned out because you're storing a bunch of junk from your past that is weighing you down?
Consider knocking down some walls that you have built up over the years from bitterness and resentment.
Don't forget your hard hat and steel toe boots, things are about to get ugly. Change usually is. Being under construction is not for the faint of heart!
It's like walking into an Operating Room, it looks like bloody murder! It's hard to see any progress in the midst of the mess.
So when you look around, wait for the dust to settle before deciding if you've made an actual improvement. Looks can be deceiving.
I picture chopping down those dead branches on the trees in your backyard, to allow better growth for the healthy ones. At first it certainly doesn't look like a change for the better. They're actually down right ugly.
Are you willing to wait for 'until' ?
Name 3 rooms in your own heart that could use a makeover. Maybe they need a fresh coat of paint, but possibly need major reconstruction. Implement at least one change today.
