Renewed-to make or become new, fresh, or strong again (according to Merriam-Webster).
Do you like to view old Victorian homes?
Or maybe you like to watch the T.V. shows where they restore older homes, cars, or furniture.
Well, I love a great D.I.Y. project.
It takes a special eye to see potential in an old, dusty, and worn thing.
You first have to see beauty in it.
Then you have to envision the end result.
The original beauty of it.
When you can see beyond all of the scratches, scrapes, dents, and dings...
well, that's where all the beauty lies.
We all get scratches, scrapes, dents, and dings as a byproduct of living and going through life.
We may lose our gloss and appear dull, overtime.
People tend to overlook and disregard the things that seem to have lost its luster and shine.
It only takes the right person to see beyond the surface and recognize the beauty.
It only takes one person to see its value again.
Jesus sees it, do you?
Do you see your beauty beyond all of the scares?
Do you see the restored spring in your step?
Do you see the fresh ideas?
Do you see the revived fight and fire that has been waiting to be released?
We may lose sight of our beauty from time to time.
But it's never too late to get that old thang back.
It's never too late to be renewed.
Although it is a process...
It is an obtainable process with an end in mind.
Renewed strength, Renewed luster and shine, Renewed fight, Renewed sense of self, Renewed heart, Renewed beauty!!!!!
Now do you see it?
What's The Moral Of The Story......no matter how bruised you may be...
no matter how hurt and defeated you may feel...
there is always an opportunity to be renewed.
You just have to see what lies beneath the surface.
As always, What's The Moral Of Your Story?
