I haven’t written an article in a while because I’ve been a bit preoccupied with a project. I find it strangely fulfilling to be so engrossed in a project that I have time for little else,
even eating on some days. My latest home project consumed all of my attention from early-September until December first, when I put the finishing touches on my full home-makeover (it shouldn’t have taken that long, but Home Depot and I had some… disagreements).
What I find most fulfilling, however, are all the life lessons that God is teaching me through this work which are applicable to every other facet of my life.
1. You Must Have Vision
The ability to see, or imagine, what is literally not there is essential to creating transformation and a beautiful outcome. Very often, the mess or dis-repair of what we currently look at clouds our ability to make things right, or make things new. But when you can tap into an imagined reality, in full detail, it’s that mental image that allows you to let the first sledge hammer fly. And as a matter of fact, you can become quite good at seeing beauty where others only see mess.
God has given each of us a measure of faith and a creative spirit; to solve problems and bring wholeness and beauty.
