This post is part of a Five Minute Friday linkup. A one-word prompt is given and we write, freely, for five minutes, then post. This week’s prompt: Finish
I’m feeling thoughtful, hopeful and reflective tonight. In those times, my thoughts go to Jesus, and so my 5 minutes begin….
The Carpenter’s work displays His glory…..
He seizes defeats, and re-establishes with victories.
He casts out shame , and re-claims with His righteous.
He takes pity on the unworthy, and re-purchases with His blood.
He sweeps away the despairs of the heart, and re-delievers hope.
He lifts the heavy weights of death, and re-places it with everlasting life through Him.
He said “I am finished”, so that we may be RE-FINISHED.
Re-finished works, as a display of His skillful hands.
So I surrender my life, my heart into the pierced hands of the skillful Carpenter to begin as a re-finished work.
Being re-paired to serve.
Being re-fined through the fire.
Being re-warded at the end of the race.
Being re-defined by His words…
All because I have been RE-DEEMED by the finisher of Redemption.
****To be honest, this took a little longer than 5 minutes, when writing about all that Jesus has done for me, there is never enough time.***
