As I was decluttering my cupboard a few weeks ago, I came across a knitting project which I started in January 2014. I had planned to have it done by the end of May, ready for use in the winter months. So last night, while we had load-shedding, I decided to take on that project again and took out the knitting bag with all my equipment, and in the bag I found a long lost book which I never finished.
I’d like to think of myself as a go-getter and a make it happen(er), a mover and shaker, someone who gets things done…but now I had this evidence which proves that I am not “that” person. I noticed my acoustic guitar, my UNISA application forms, and a DIY project half done… and it made me question myself. Why haven’t I finished it? Is not completing things becoming a habit? Do I have a valid excuse and what have I done with my time and energy?
We often start out strong, full of enthusiasm and zeal. Along the way our vision of the end result gets blurred by distractions, procrastination and circumstances. The enthusiasm fades and we lose interest.
Philipians 1: 6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus..” God will never lose interest in us.
Sometimes all we need is an unfinished scarf to give us a reality check! Look around you, look within you, and identify the loose ends in your life that needs some tying up… whether it’s completing your tertiary education or finishing a DIY project.
NOTE : Its not too late to re-fresh, re-start and FINISH!!!
