While talking with a family member over the weekend, we were discussing Lyfechatblog and the she mentioned the words “Under Construction”. Now granted those words were appropriate for the conversation, my vivid imagination wandered on to another meaning for the words which brings me to this post. Under construction kind of stuck with me that night; the book definition is “being built or repaired”, but in actuality those words go a lot deeper for me.
I looked at the different angles of my life; how I used to be, how far I’ve come and how much further I plan to go. The beauty alone from admiring the growth I see in myself had me in awe because I know it is my God that has brought me to this point. Granted I’ve come so far from what I used to be mentally, spiritually & emotionally, I still have not arrived. I came to accept the fact that I myself am still under construction. You see we are all really under construction; we are either still being built or being repaired from something that broke us down. At times we try to portray this image of completion when truthfully we are never fully complete. Every day we grow and add-on knowledge from life’s experiences; every day we grow towards the Christ like image in which we all should be aiming for. Whether it be the broken family that is taking steps daily to rebuild the foundation of stability, or the young woman/man who is being built up with the lessons of life; no matter who we are or what position we hold in life, we are all still under construction.
