In order for our house to be the house we need for it to be, there has to be demolition. The house is basically gutted in some areas and there is much work to be done - hard work. But in a few short weeks, we will have a brand new home! If we had not done this, the electrician would never have found the problems he found (which could have been extremely dangerous), our ducts and insulation would not have been effective and the contractor would have never discovered that our ceiling was not straight and needed fixing in some areas. These are things that were not visible to the eye, but are very important to the longevity and safety of our home.
Looking at it today, you would probably never be able to imagine what it could be. But I can see through it. To me, it's got incredible potential and in no time, it will be the perfect home for our family. It reminds me of so many of the HGTV shows where the homebuyers look at a home that is outdated, crowded and has decor from 1972. The homebuyers always remark how they don't see how this house could EVER be something they would love, yet at the end of the show, they are in tears and happy as can be with their new, beautifully updated home.
If God has you in the demolition phase of your life, hang in there. If you are feel you have nothing to offer, think again. There might be some things that need fixing and it may look worse before it gets better, but know this: God has a plan for you and He will not give up on you until He is finished making you into the person He knows you will be!
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. -Philippians 1:6
