Over the past month , I have run into so much construction driving to and from places. I have gotten lost trying to find the Detour routes and have had to turn around because I then passed where I was suppose to go. One word came to mind while driving through the area: Inconvenience! It can be upsetting to you ; if you didn’t know that construction zone was there to begin with and especially if your late. I really don’t like construction. Its slow and you have to be patient waiting for the car in front of you to move. Stop and go traffic.
There are those orange pylons and all sorts of signs everywhere,. It can be confusing…What word would you put in there when you think of driving through construction? Furthermore, some construction is often delayed and so may have to deal with the same area until it is done. In other words, you will need to just be patient until the project is done.
You know where I’m going with this, right?
Have you felt like you have been through Spiritual Construction ?That God, THE Project Manager, is demolishing stuff in your life? That He is in the process of creating and building a new you? That He is tearing down the old and putting up the new? He is a creating GOD, if anyone can re-build things in you ; it would be Him.
Are you willing to be in the Zone? Are you ready for the transportation God wants to do in your life?.
A lot of my life has felt like a Construction zone. Sometimes , I was willing and other times I was not; but GOD still did work in me to better me. When I was not willing ; it seemed to be more difficult then when I was willing . I also worked on myself to better myself. I don’t mean physically, I mean working on stuff like : Forgiveness, learning about Love, Showing Gods love to people, showing Grace, getting rid of judgement, anger, gossip. The things that hinder growth, the things that needed to be demolished in my life.
There are so many people that walk through life doing the same thing day in and day out; not caring about doing some constructive change in their life. Do you see any signs that would suggest that you may need some work? Are you willing to go under construction with the Lord, or are you saying ; ” My life is fine; why would I want to do that intentionally!?” . Fair question. I still encourage you to seek GOD and ask Him ; if there is anything in your life that needs to go through Gods Construction , and then listen, honestly.
When your in the construction zone with God ; you may feel like ” Hurry up GOD, I don’t have time for this!” or ” Seriously God, I’m not that bad am I?!”. Try to be patient allowing Abba to work in your life to the fullest. He knows what He is doing.
Next time you go by construction ; think about this blog , ask God if there is something that needs to be worked on. What is He saying to you? Let him done the renovation, repair, maintenance in your life today, you really will be glad you did.
