Work In Progress
As an artist sometimes I will share a work in progress.
The painting is not finished. It may just be in
the beginning stages or almost complete. It may need more contrast, deeper values, or a few more details. There are times though when I am uncertain what is needed or how to finish. In my eyes there is something missing. It doesn't meet my expectations.
Similarly I also am a work in progress. The difference is that my creator knows exactly what He must do to finish me. He may soften some edges...
wipe out areas that need to be brighter... deepen values to show contrast between dark and light. There may be places where my composition needs to be stronger or unnecessary clutter that leaves no place for the eye to rest. Whatever changes He makes will refine me and bring me to a good finish.
If there is any one of you who like me might be a work in progress take heart..."being confident of this that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Phil. 1:6 (NIV). Please have a wonderful evening - God Bless!
