They always sound like a great idea,
you actually begin the renovation process.
And then you realize that you are in way over your head.
Because things are out of place,
everything is messy,
it always costs more than expected,
and it always takes longer than you had originally planned.
It’s here you have a choice:
You can continue the renovation, lingering in the mess, and end up with a beautiful, finished product.
you can hurry things along, halfway doing the job, and settle for something less than beautiful, something incomplete.
it’s completely up to you.
I for one,
have come to appreciate the mess.
I have come to appreciate the process of renovation.
it’s in the mess that beauty is created. It’s in the mess that restoration is found. It’s in the mess that hope comes to life. And it’s in the mess that He takes the broken and fragmented pieces of our lives and puts us back together. (tweet this)
if you are going through a process of renovation,
don’t rush through,
learn to linger in the mess.
You’ll be better for it.
