Under Construction

Under Construction

Today, I visited my local McDonald’s and they appeared to be under construction,  one would automatically assume that they were closed.

No sir, No mam, they were in full force working as if everything was in place(business as usual).  As I was driving up, I saw that they had sprayed in big bold letters ” WE ARE OPEN.”

When I drove around, I spoke to the worker and told him how I admired how they were inside working under those conditions. His response was ” Gotta keep that money coming”   His statement shared the “PURPOSE”  that had been laid before him by his managers.

This morning encounter is the inspiration for today’s post. Even before speaking to the worker and seeing his response to the situation “Under Construction”  that he was working through,God had already began to speak to me.

He was showing me how we have to be like the McDonald’s Crew. We have to keep working through the “Construction Period’ of our lives. The Final Product is going to be great!

Under Construction

God is working on us through our situations.  Many times we come to the point of quitting before the work is complete. We start to move on to other things and  never see the finished product. We have to stay focused and let God finish the work that he has started in our lives.

The breaking down and building back up may be hard. Some days you feel that this is not for you. It may be easier to do something different.  It may seem that you have been waiting for a long time for your change to come. Just remember that God has not left you or forsaken you.

Here are some tips to help you during the ” Construction Period of you life

  1. Pray Daily
  2. Surround yourself with like -minded individuals (Accountability Partner)
  3. Stay Focused
  4. Ask a friend to be your Prayer Partner
  5. Keep your Vision and Goals before you Daily
  6. Build your Faith- Study God’s word on Faith
  7. Just Believe- No matter what continue to trust GOD
  8. Re-evaluate Often to make sure you are still on track
  9. Get rid of people and things that are not beneficial to the VISION and PLAN

Job 23:9-11 

on the left hand where He doth work, but I cannot behold Him; He hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see Him.

10 But He knoweth the way that I take; when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

11 My foot hath held His steps; His way have I kept, and not declined.
