I was up early this morning doing sanding some drywall, trying to get this wall ready to paint. I can’t relate to you how much I had to sand anything. It’s so tedious. But the results when you are finished – Oh wow!. It’s always amazing to watch something rough and raged turn into something smooth and useful.
What I am glad it that our creator must like sanding, because I think he really gets joy out of the final product – especially when it ( us) bring him glory. So you may be up against the grit now. Just let it keep refining you, and I think you will be amazed how that makes you better in the end.
Praise our God, all peoples,
let the sound of his praise be heard;
9 he has preserved our lives
and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For you, God, tested us;
you refined us like silver.
11 You brought us into prison
and laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water,
but you brought us to a place of abundance. Ps 66:8-12 NIV
