This morning as I was looking at my blog I noticed I’ve got multiple articles or “posts” started, but I’ve never finished them. They have been sitting around for a long time waiting to be finished. Here are a few of their titles ….
- What happens after you die?
- I have a dream (about the church).
- Things that frustrate me.
- How to be a better blogger.
- What is a “real” man?
- What is modest dress?
- Questions about men that women want answered.
- Church words that aren’t biblical words.
What I realize is that I’m a great starter. I can start anything and everything. If you need something started, I am your man. The problem is I’m not a good finisher. I can’t seem to finish all the things I start. I’ve started numerous books that I never finished. I’ve started sermons that I’ve never finished. I can’t begin to tell you how many other projects I’ve started that I haven’t finished.
I’m glad God’s not like that. God is not only a good starter, but He’s an even better finisher. Do you remember the old children’s song, “He’s still working on me, to make me all I have to be…?” I’m extremely thankful that He’s not finished with me. I’m so far from where I want to be spiritually, and I’ve got so many flaws in my life that need serious work. I struggle spiritually, and I need God’s help. As I cry out to the Lord, “Father, I’m a spiritual failure and I look nothing like your Son,” I’m reminded He gently answers, “Trey, don’t give up. I’m not finished with you yet.”
