This week we are having the interior of our home painted which I have wanted for several years. From my desk I can see into the front part where they are painting and it looks a mess. Such disarray! This is temporal and the result will be lovely, but this step in the process has to be. I often think of spiritual growth and how I would love it to be as a snap of the fingers but that couldn’t happen. As I look at the chaos, I realize it certainly isn’t permanent and a beautiful outcome will be evident in a few days. The painter is visualizing the outcome; as will I.
Psalm 37:4 reads “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give yo the desires of your heart.”
