“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6 (NASB)
I’ve had a rough time the past few days. There are things that I’m dealing with and feelings that are surfacing, things that I have hidden and tried to keep buried for far too long.
While I rarely talk about what my pastor said on Sunday (suffice it to say that it usually isn’t, um, relevant), but the verse he used during the morning service was just what I needed to hear. Because while I’m in the middle of this mess, it’s easy to think that I’ll never get out. That I’ll never be free from it. That it will always be there.
But this? All of this is just part of the work God is doing in my life to perfect it.
One day, I’m not sure when, I’ll be able to look back and see the work He did. I’ll be able to thank Him for what happened because it will have shaped me. He isn’t finished with me yet. He isn’t done. And I’m so thankful that He isn’t.
