The Fixer Upper

Have you ever watched shows on home remodeling and just been completely mind blown by the transformations? I catch myself watching these shows here and there on HGTV and every time I'm jaw dropped in seeing how they turn an inhabitable mess into something so beautiful.

It's all so captivating, how they find this run down home sometimes infested with creepy crawlers, mold and plain old nastiness and begin to put in work. It looks so impossible to make something out of the house; yet, they breakdown walls, floors, and cabinets completely gutting and clearing the house. I've come to the conclusion that it takes a visionary, a dreamer, someone willing to take the risk to do it. Not just anyone would be capable of it.

Our lives can sometimes look like those broken, run down houses. Too far gone to be anything. Too far gone for someone to want to invest in us. The risk is too high and would it even be worth it? Are we worth it, or is this broken life all I am meant to be?

Yet, here comes along God enthusiastically, like the people on the show, ready to start a new project. Ready to get His hand on you to start a transformation better than the last one.

I have heard so many people say, "I'm just too far gone for God to change me" or "I've done so many bad things, that God won't even try with me"... let me just say "the lie detector determined that is a lie." (Really wish there was Maury gif to insert here.)

See, He's a visionary, a dreamer, a definite risk taker (FYI I'm talking about God, not Maury lol). There is nothing too far gone for Him to restore and make into something new and better. He's also not afraid of all the things that are lurking within the walls of your life.

He doesn't care about what you've done, where you been; He simply cares about where you're going and if it's a life with or without Him.

When we allow God into our lives, He grabs hold of all of it and slowly begins to remove and breakdown what no longer needs to be there in order to make room for the new and beautiful upgrades He wants to bring in.

  • Have you been stuck in a toxic relationship because thats what you think you deserve? Well, God wants to take you out of that, heal the pain caused and bring forth something new, healthy and better. What you really do deserve.

  • Are you complacent in a career or job because others told you that you would never amount to your dream? Get ready to be filled with walls of confidence and purpose, knowing that if God put it in your heart you have everything you need to do it.

  • Stuck in a negative mindset & lifestyle because that all you've ever known? All that black moldy mess of negative thoughts and lifestyle, cleaned and cleared with His truth and a new life found in Him.

What I am saying your "too far gone life" doesn't have to be your life, you don't have to keep being the run down house. Welcome the master-craftsman, and allow Him to slowly create you into a masterpiece that makes jaws drop. Your life completely transformed for the better. The old removed and the new ready to move like never before.

So, if you thought of yourself as too far gone to be anything, think again.

The Truth:

“But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?" - Isaiah 43: 18-19a

"For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."- Ephesians 2:10
