THE MASTER CRAFTSMAN
Near the close of summer, we are did a bit
of remodeling in our home, patching ceilings
filling cracks, and painting walls,
At first, it seemed as though we would never
finish. And yet, as each day progressed, we
could see further progress, and this gave us
hope that we might eventually finish our tasks,
which, after a few weeks, we actually did.
That's the way it is in our personal lives. At
some point in our lives we realized that we
needed a refurbishing.
Damage, to our soul, due to lack of concern
and care, had taken its toll through the years,
and the task of renovating called for the skills
of the Master Craftsman. We needed to have
Him restore our soul. It was obvious that we
badly needed Him to be our interior decorator.
We were greatly in need of repairs. Because of
the material he has had to work with, progress
has been slower than we would have desired.
We often become impatient with Him. We,
so often, have wanted immediate results. We
have wanted the job done yesterday.
But, we are learning to be patient, and trust
and have fatih in Him.
We are confident that the results shall one
day be grand.They always are when the
builder's tools are wielded by the hand of
the Master Craftsman.
