Tearing down the old and building a new
Yesterday I went to church and I brought one of my very close friends with me.
In the car on our way to church we were talking about gods plan for our lives. What we are going to do after graduation this year, what colleges we were thinking about attending, How we were going to pay for it, our future careers….And that’s when my mind actually stepped in and faced reality. We are about to step into the REAL world…be on our own and deal with adult choices and adult situations. It’s almost unrealistic how much time flies by.
When our minds began to ponder upon this thought we started talking about Gods will and how we would know what his will for our lives was. We started getting worried and stressed about making the wrong choices and leading our lives in the wrong direction.
But then I realized that there is no such thing as perfect people. We are going to be faced with choices and we may make the wrong decisions but god isn’t going to abandon us…He will make his will and his plan for our life work out no matter what mistakes we make.
God makes a broken life a new one. He tears down the old wall and builds newer more healthier ones.
I was surprised when we walked into church and my youth pastor told us we were going to be tearing down our old fellowship hall to make room for the new church we are going to begin to build in a couple of weeks.
He related it to the same things that we were talking about in the car it was very ironic. God works in mysterious ways.
We got to take out all of our stress and bad things out on tearing down the walls and we came out feeling confident and happy.
