“We can all draw close to him with the veil removed from our faces. And with no veil we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into his very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another. And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”—2 Corinthians 3:18 TPT
“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”—2 Corinthians 3:18 ESV
I’ve noticed this morning,
that it’s much more challenging to write
from a place of
“being in the middle”…
…when I feel “unresolved“…
It’s harder to write
when I feel as though something has not yet been changed in me…
when the “transformation” that I need, that I desire…
has not yet happened, when the issues in my heart have not yet been resolved…
…and I know that it’s happening…
I know that He’s working—He’s moulding, He’s shaping, He’s transformING…
but it’s as though I am still waiting
in the midst of the pain
in the midst of still looking at things from a skewed perspective—and I know that it needs to change, I can see that I need see differently.
I know that I need transformation in this area, and I know that this transformation can only come from the Spirit of God, writing and transforming my heart.
Forgiving my sins. Mending my wounds. Healing my pain…
“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.”—Acts 3:19
So here I am…
in this place
writing these honest words…
And I need transformation so that I can see clearly, accurately—from His perspective, and not my own.
But this morning, in the midst of waiting for His transformation to occur in my heart, and in my mind…
I take heart, I take comfort
that I am
“It is written.”
And He is doing it, in the way He sees fit for my life, for my journey
and most of all
for His plans and purposes.
So Heavenly Father, I put these words down into this journal this morning…
and I write them in the midst of being in this
“unfinished feeling place”
This place of being “imperfectly me” before a “perfect You”…
And I know that I’m in Your hands.
I know that You are doing what only You can do.
You have promised to do Your work in me.
So I thank You for what You have started.
I thank You for what You are DOING.
And I thank You
for what You are going to complete in me.
I trust You…
…in this part of the process.
It’s okay to be “unfinished”… “unresolved”…
“in the middle”
…because He IS getting me there. 🏃🏻♀️☀️
And isn’t that a part
of what this walk—this journey— is all about…
Being transformed into His likeness.
Radiating His light…
Learning to LIVE and to LOVE, from hearts
that are connected with His heart.
Oh help us, Lord.
Thank You, Father. 💝
