Walking through neighborhoods in our city can be pretty interesting. As I passed a nearby furniture repair shop, the carpenter had his day’s projects sitting outside. I’d love to see the finished chairs, but it’s not likely that I’ll get the opportunity.

I often have this same thought when it comes to the work that God is doing in people’s lives. I want to see the end result, but that’s not always how it works. In Hebrews 12:2, we are reminded that Jesus is the “author and perfecter of our faith.” My job is to join Jesus where He is working, at whatever point along a person’s journey, trusting that He is drawing her to Himself. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the story, at the beginning, middle, or end!
