I was watching a TV show called "Rick's Restorations" (I think that's the name); one of those American reality shows. It's about people bringing all manner of things to Rick to be restored. Typically the things are usually of sentimental value, very old, dilapidated, or even in pieces.
The particular night I stumbled across the show, Rick was asked to restore a mini tractor. It was the owner's deceased Dad's tractor which, when he was a boy, he'd rode perched on his father's knee; obviously of great sentimental value. However, he delivered it in bits and pieces.
It was at least 30 yrs old & not produced anymore, yet Rick's team, despite some hurdles, restored it piece by piece to pristine condition. It was AMAZING!! Needless to say, the owner was ecstatic and in tears on delivery day.
As I reflected on the story & the vision of the original tractor in pieces, looking like a pile of junk, & then seeing it transformed into mint condition & fully operational, I heard "that soft voice". It said, "That's you & that's your marriage."
God is the Master Restorer. What can appear to our eyes (& limited thinking) to be dead & useless, He can restore it. And, just now as I write, "that voice" has reminded me that it will be the same for me; piece by piece, overcoming hurdles &, in time, "thy will be done." As with any restoration, it's a labour of love that He will gladly do, you just have to ask. And you too will be in tears of joy on delivery day.
God bless n luv ya guts
