Under Construction

This site is under construction.

And many times in life, we have to go through the same thing. Yes we have to. The choice is ours to take that we have to. Refusal would mean to be left undone and not press toward what we were created for. We can choose to be laid broken down, not re-constructed, or unfurnished like an abandoned demolished building. Life is big and has to go through construction for it to be big.

Some of us might just need get started from zero to construct something out of a dream placed in our hearts. Somehow, to start scratching our heads gets our minds awakened by the friction between the hair, the scalp and the fingernail. I just hope that scratching our heads would not make us look stupid and not knowing what to do, but rather help stir up the dream. Let any of our frustrations lead us to aim to get better. Sometimes, we get frustrated when we see something that is under construction — roads, bridges, favorite websites, stores. We feel the inconvenience. We would most of the time want everything to be perfect. But we are not there yet. In this world and in this life, we’ll see imperfections even in our very selves, and sometimes causes our failures. Seeing imperfections means there is so much construction and reconstruction we have to go through and may involve pain, failures, and a lot of discipline. I would choose to. And what motivates me to go through it? I’ve got dreams. I want to let this construction make me and bring me closer to the fulfillment of my dreams. I want my attitude, behavior, and character be what they are supposed to be.

Out of our dreams we construct our life and build it upon a Rock that is higher. Join me in this journey.

Matthew 7:24-27  (MSG) “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock.”

1 Corinthians 9:26-27 (MSG)  I don’t know about you, but I’m running hard for the finish line. I’m giving it everything I’ve got. No sloppy living for me! I’m staying alert and in top condition. I’m not going to get caught napping, telling everyone else all about it and then missing out myself.
