"Are YOU a work IN Progress?"
We all fall short and mess up! But it is a great opportunity to reflect on where we are and that we need the Lord. We will never arrive on this earth. All we can do is the best we can do and ask the Lord for His help and change us to be who He created us to be. I believe the key to being better is repenting for our sins that gives God the green light to work in us. So has the reality of humanity presented itself lately? Repent and move on and ask the Holy Spirit to "Help". So you are like everyone else on this earth. A mess without Jesus. We have nothing in us that makes us good. But with Jesus, his goodness overflows onto His kids. When we change and grow and allow the Holy Spirit to do his holy surgery on us, we change (2 Cor. 5:17) The Word of God was given to us to use as a manual. God gives us instruction of how to live a life of peace, joy, wholeness, freedom, abundance, happiness, security, contentment, self-control and have a sound mind.
I am thankful to be a Christian. If I had to figure my life out on my own, I would really be a disaster. So thankful for the Holy Spirit, for His guidance, discipline and comfort. (Prov. 3:5-6)
