ready (10.14am)

ready1

as a teenager watching movies with girl meets boy, there was usually a scene of getting ready to be picked up.  doorbell met with shout.  i’m-not-ready-stall-him-until-i get-it-exactly-right.

twenty something and wishing for someone ready for what it took to love me for keeps.

thirty something and wondering if i had chosen turn offs and exits too often to be ready for worthwhile ahead.

but god is not bound by are you ready.

he is handing out grace and hope and a future to the un-ready.

the i am not enough.

the my kind of pretty isn’t on the pages.

the i’ve heard too many noes to believe in yes.

the my past has hurt and hopeless woven through it.

the i can’t do this if i am just me.

the i’ve been left behind.

the i’m not sure i trust you with all of me.

“for by grace you have been saved through faith. and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of god, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. for we are his workmanship, created in christ jesus for good works, which god prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

ephesians 2:8-10 (ESV)
