UNDER CONSTRUCTION (please excuse our appearance)

They know it will make a mess. 

Businesses, households and road crews are completely aware of the process when renovating their buildings, homes, or roads. 

But, they do it anyway.   

They send in their demolition crews.  They rip down, pull apart and don't hold themselves back.  They aren't concerned about the mess they are making during the demolition process because their eyes are focused on the finished product.  If anything, they understand that the mess is actually a sign to all that things are going to start looking really really good in the near future.

Renovating the heart can be a similar process.  And, boy can things get messy as the Carpenter begins His work -- pulling out and ripping down the things that are like cancer to us; bringing up old heart injuries that make us limp all day long; shaking the foundation of things in our life that hinder our Freedom. 

He knows this ain't no mess-free job.

But, He proceeds and asks us to stick it out with Him because his eyes are focused on the finished product.  He knows the mess is actually a sign that things are going to start looking really really good in the near future.
