I was watching this video on an artists work on one of the new Transformers and thought of how much time and attention to detail this guy put in. Anyway, I think our lives are somewhat similar. They are the work of a confluence of artists…the hand of God, the care of friends, the love of a family and our own choices are shading in our character, forming us into one image or another.
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
Sometimes we are impatient and want our lives to be like a speed action painting when in reality our growth is gradual, many times slower than we like, day by day as God gives grace. Yet if we could watch our life go by at 400X we would see just how profound the work of God upon us really is. We too shall be changed; detail by detail, a little lighting here and a little shading there. By the grace of God we are what we are…and this grace is not without effect.
Thanking God for transformers…the fun guys in cartoons and movies as well as my friends and fam who are being transformed each day. Oh yeah, my son loves Bumblebee, I like Optimus Prime…here is that one as well.
