God Finishes What God Starts!

Friday, October 27th, 2006

Today’s scripture: Philippians 1:3-6 (NRSV) (The Message)

As you read, consider: What might God be saying to me? Summarize your thoughts in a sentence or two before reading on.

My thoughts (Tammy Mills):

I am the queen of unfinished projects! I have at least 15 cross-stitch projects I have started at home, none of which is completed. I have a stack of bills, by my computer, that are supposed to get filed monthly — the only month that has been filed is January 2006. Most recently I rearranged the furniture in my office. To be more accurate, I got it about half way rearranged. I am sitting here writing this with my feet resting on the desk drawers, of the desk I moved out of here — hopefully one day I will get the drawers moved also!

Paul tells us that God doesn’t leave a project unfinished, like I often do. God can be trusted to finish the transformational work that is going on in your soul. God doesn’t just fire you up and then leave you hanging. God never gives up on you! God will be faithful to complete the work that God began in you!

Thought for the day: What spiritual work am I leaving “unfinished”?

Today, let’s join together in prayer for: Those we know who need physical healing, including Ray, Buddy, Ev’s son Eric, Sue, Richard, and Maggie.

We encourage you to include a time of prayer with this reading. Use the item above as a starting point, or consider the guidelines on the How to Pray page.
