So yesterday, I took a quiz and did better than I ever have on a quiz for that class. I was surprised because I hadn’t studied. I noticed something different about this time though, I prayed the entire time through it. The other times I took a quiz I studied for them and depended upon my ability to study and not God. I related this more to my life and realized that I always try to trust in my own ability to do something and not God. I feel like a fail all of the tests He presents before me and maybe that’s because I study and know what I can do, but don’t trust in Him. Trusting in Him is so important for everything.
My whole life has been made up of unfinished projects. I was thinking about this on my drive to class yesterday. It seems as though I have never seen a fully completed project. I always start something, but then I lose my motivation to finish. I go in determined, but come out fizzled. This is how my Spiritual life is too. Everyday I try to start over and be a better person, but find myself never finishing. I just back out and give up. I am so grateful that I serve a God who is the King of Completed Projects. When I sin and fall short, as we all often do, He is there to put back the pieces. If I did this on my own, I would not even be able to put half of myself back together. He makes me whole though. Now as I look at my life, instead of seeing unfinished projects, I look at it as depending on a God who never fails to make it to the finish.
