There is a new hobby I have found in rehabbing old furniture. A hobby that has come from trying to create a fun and whimsical space for the kids on a tight budget. Just jumping right in seems to be how I do things best and learn as I go. As the flaws in my painting and in old scars of the furniture started showing a different kind of beauty has developed.
I can’t help but think of how imperfect I am and how life in general is. It is through these imperfections and scars that God can create our greatest beauty. Giving Jesus our sin, our scars, and our weaknesses He covers them with His righteousness and turns our flaws into something of beauty. Each of our lives are unique and have a specific purpose planned by God. We can remain dark and drab or allow Him to bring out a beauty that we cannot see or create in ourselves.
Philippians 1:6 “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.”
