When I hear the word restoration it reminds me of an old chest getting another chance to shine and be what it was once meant to be. As a master craftsman begins the process of stripping away its old stain to make way for the new and replacing worn-out hardware…the latter beauty of that chest can be even more beautiful than the former because its aged lines and rugged edges of where it’s been coming through. The renovator isn’t about making it altogether something else but upgrading the existing that it can be utilized a little longer…perhaps generations to come. Never taking away one scratch from where it’s been because those scratches tell a story.
What are your scratches and dings saying about where you have been? Do you try to cover them in shame and guilt or will you bring them before the Master Craftsman and creator of all things, allowing Him to restore the beauty intended all along? Inclusive of every scratch and rut created along the way He heals the wounds but what if when the blood covers it also reveals the beauty, as it runs into every rut, every ding, filling every crevice along the way. We are reconciled to our Master and all things are new.

Father come to heal every place in me that I am tempted to keep covered in guilt and shame. I come now to the foot of the cross of Jesus and welcome His precious blood to flow to every place. Allow every scratch and ding to tell a story about my faithful KING. In Jesus name. AMEN.
We are here to pray with you.
