IAM a Work in Progress

PHILIPPIANS 1:6 NLT And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

We are still in the process. We have not arrived just yet. I want to encourage you first:  God started something GOOD inside of you.  When we think about what events in our life sparked the desire to change or grow, many times, we might think about some shocking events that might seem negative.  I look back and I think I might have done some things differently as a youngster, but those origins are what makes me today.  I hold to the truth that a Good, Great work was started inside of me in the beginning.  My birth was in greatness, and my life will continue in greatness.

More great news:  We didn’t just sign up for something, and that’s it!  We aren’t left to just twist in the wind, and fend for ourselves! We now continue to grow, improve, learn, change and transform everyday!  I am so impressed when I hear about people who make decisions to do amazing things, and the world tells them they are crazy.

When the world tells you that you are crazy , or that it’s impossible: great, you are on the right track! Don’t listen to the lies of the world: you are too old, not smart enough, the opponent is invincible.   Only stick to what you know. God started something in me, and I am going to keep moving towards that wonderful goal!

The beauty of life is that we have the amazing ability to continue to learn and grow.  We have the infinite capacity to learn.  We also have the capacity to grow in our heart for others.

Philippians-0106

Don’t give up!

Don’t write off the world and think that society is not going to change

Don’t think: Who am I but one person, how can I make an impact

You can’t teach this old dog new tricks!

LIES!  All of them!

Today:  Think about the things that are left unfinished.  Are you supposed to leave them behind because they are unworthy of your life?  Or have you forgotten about who you really are, and you need to get back to it?  Don’t give up!  Stay the course!

I believe in you!

 

IAM Born in greatness

IAM Growing in Greatness everyday

IAM Constantly Transforming

IAM Improving Everyday

He Who Began A Good Work

He who began a good work in you
He who began a good work in you
Will be faithful to complete it
He’ll be faithful to complete it
He who started the work
Will be faithful to complete it in you

If the struggle you’re facing
Is slowly replacing
Your hope with despair
Or the process is long
And you’re losing your song
In the night you can be sure
That the Lord has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you
You are His treasure
And He finds His pleasure in you

He who began a good work in you
He who began a good work in you
Will be faithful to complete it
He’ll be faithful to complete it
He who started the work
Will be faithful to complete it in you
If the struggle you’re facing
Is slowly replacing
Your hope with despair
Or the process is long
And you’re losing your song
In the night you can be sure
That the Lord has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you
You are His treasure
And He finds His pleasure in you
