Today Sophie and I tried to go to a Chic-fil-a near our home today for lunch only to find that it is being renovated. I will totally give them the benefit of the doubt and believe that they need to renovate. Also, I don’t get a vote in it anyway. But, to me, I did not see anything wrong with it, I thought it was pretty nice just the way it was. During this renovation they did have a little circus-type vending cart on the side that helped us addicted patrons….but no fries so Sophie wouldn’t have it. We went to Wendy’s across the street.
Regardless of why they are renovating, they saw the need to do it.
It got me thinking about my life. Things may seem fine to others and even myself, but am I in need of renovation. Yes, I could lose some weight and shave, but I am talking about my heart, my soul. How is my attitude during this time of waiting to get over to Thailand and transition? Do I have some walls in my life that need taken down? Am I renovating areas of my life for the worse, bringing things in that have no place. Renovations are not always just cosmetic, they are also needed at times due to pour maintenance in the past that leads to rust, mold, and leaks. What am I neglecting in my heart and mind that is slowly starting to rot? Some things we don’t see, others we do. I think we need to constantly be open to the Holy Spirit doing a renovation within us.
through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah
5 I acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
