Do you ever have one of those weeks where it feels like no matter what you do, it’s wrong? I’ve just had one of those.

I feel like I had mess-ups on top of my mess-ups. Like I just couldn’t get my act together. Like I’d like to be able to put out a sign that says, “I’m done adulting. I’ll be coloring in my blanket fort, if you need me.”

When times like that come along (and they do, for everyone), it’s good to remember what Scripture tells us:

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God began this good work in you. God does not leave projects half-finished. God will keep working on you, until His work is complete. Until you are complete. Until Jesus comes back, and “It is finished” takes on a whole new meaning.

During these long Lenten days, may you know that God is not done with you yet. May you know that God is at work in you and through you. May you know that Jesus will come back, and you – and me, and everyone and everything – will be completed in Him.
