Progress

I love making progress.  I love being able to look at my to do list and cross stuff off.  I love seeing projects accomplished.  I love putting ideas on a board and building a plan.  I love progress.  Even if it isn’t huge a little progress puts a ton of wind in your sails.

Often the thing that slows me down from progress is feeling like I have to big a distance between where I am and the end of a project.  But breaking it down into little chunks makes it all possible.

What little steps do you need to talk today to make some big progress?

Work In Progress

I’m never done. 

It seems that as soon as I finish one project it leads to another.  Sometimes that’s incredibly frustrating.  Sometimes I just want to look at all of done and say, “It’s finished, it’s complete.” 

That will never happen though.  And I’m ok with that.  I’m ok with it because as a pastor my job is helping people discover, trust and love Jesus.  That’s my work.  All my projects further that goal.  And Jesus finished something.  On the Cross, he said, “It is finished.”  

What does that mean?  Well it means that Jesus’ work on the cross finished the work of atonement, of providing grace for sins.  My work that never get’s finished is to point people to the finished work of Jesus. 

I’m a work in progress, you are a work in progress, and we all need to look to the completed work of Jesus.
