All of us experience change in our lives. Change is the one constant in our lives. There are changes that we look forward to and change that we fear. However, one thing is for sure. Things will not stay the same no matter how much we would like them too. When a life change occurs, we have two choices in how to respond. We can despair that a change has come and assume that things will be worse, or we can look with excitement at the new possibilities that the change presents.

The Lord reminded me today I'm still under construction. I don't need to be in a hurry, because He isn't. He take times to do things right and lays a solid foundation. He is the master Builder, and He knows what He is doing. Due Season is God's season, not ours. Lord help me to look at my life through the eyes of faith. Open my heart to the possibility of understand the great work you are doing on my life and you are directing every one of my steps. You timing is perfect and You are never late. No matter what I feel or how the situation may look I believe You are working in me. Philippians 1:6 " Be confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus".
Thank you Lord for filling me with Your Holy Spirit, I receive Your strength, I receive Your power and I believe Your word and trust that You are leading me forward to press on into the life You have for me in Jesus Name.
I love poetry and when I read this poem I identify with the author and want to share it because maybe it can serve to strengthen others who are "Under Construction" like me.

Because Of You
© Jacqueline Burciaga
Because you picked me up, when I struggled to get through.
Because you healed my heart, when it was thrown and shattered.
Because you gave me hope, when it seemed so out of reach.
Because you filled me with peace, when chaos flowed through my veins.
Because you showed me the light, when there was only darkness.
Because you gave me comfort, when my voice cried out in pain.
Because you reassured me, when the doubts screamed in my head.
Because you kept me going, when there seemed nowhere to go.
Because you sustained me with strength, when weakness became all I knew.
Because you came and stayed, when everyone else turned around and left.
Because you gave me a purpose, when life seemed so pointless.
Because you restored my happiness, when life seemed to snatch it away.
Because you filled this emptiness, when the void echoed with loneliness.
Because you helped me let it all go, when I gripped the tightest to hold on.
Because you showed me the beauty of life, when the world showed me nothing but hate and corruption.
Because you gave me a better life, when the old one fought to come back.
Because I am nothing without you, nothing but a hopeless being.
Because only You could tear down my wall of pride, and instead build it back up with love and humbleness.
Because of all this, I give you my life Lord.
I will put all my fears and failures in Your hands, my worries that consume me, my pain that destroys me.
You were always there, even when I rejected You.
Because of all You are, my life, oh God, is yours.

    God opens doors that no man can shut. It's our choice whether or not we will walk through those open doors. Never stop believing and expecting for change and breakthrough to happen. God is the God of suddenlies!

    Yes we are all under construction - all the time. We are continually improving and changing. Only our Lord knows what we will become. I prefer to think of set backs as detours to new adventures.
    Love your page background. Hope you're having a great day and week.
