As you know, my home is under renovation. In its final stages.
They are redoing the heat and air units and putting in and taking out some of the classroom walls at the school where I work this summer, so several of my ceiling tiles are removed.
It seems as if no matter where I turn, whether it’s home or school, my life is under construction.
It frustrates me at times. I’m not the most patient person. I want it done. Now.
But as I took my trip to Oklahoma City yedterday morning to visit the eye doctor, and it was just me and God, I had time to think about it. Perhaps the fact that the Turner Turnpike, that’s also under construction, to one lane with the speed limit of 50 miles an hour for much of the journey, had something to do with it.
Isn’t that what my life is all about? Aren’t we all always under construction as far as God is concerned?
Let’s all build strong foundations in Christ, so we can withstand whatever times in our life that we need to be under construction.
As I drove down Lincoln Boulevard in Oklahoma City on the way to the Dean McGee Eye Institute, I passed the capitol. It looked strange without all the teachers there. So much more quiet and still since the last time I visited Oklahoma City. Just another piece of something in my life that was under construction. Our Capitol.
Let’s all see our lives as under construction. It’s all around us, and it’s within us. With Christ as our foundation. None of us are finished yet, this side of heaven anyway. Let’s learn to be patient as God works on us.
According to the grace of God which was given unto me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation and another is building on it, but each man must be careful how he builds on it. 1 Corinthians 3:10-15
