If you own a home or like to work on cars, you probably have some type of project that you haven’t gotten to. Sometimes time is the issue. Yet, other aspirations remain unfinished due to hidden problems, a lack of resources and technical difficulties. Thus, situations will arise when you will have to rely on others to get the job done.
The reason I left you in Crete was that you might put in order what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you, Titus 1:5.
Unfortunately, some people tend to be Lone Rangers, enjoying the freedom of doing things their own way. Meanwhile, others allow pride to get in the way, afraid, ashamed or too proud to ask for help. The end result often leads to abandoned dreams, clutter and countless unfinished projects rusting away in attics, garages and sheds.
This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you,” Ephesians 5:14.
When the raw emotions of being overwhelmed fade, its time to snap yourself out of it. You might have to wait longer than you planned, but Jesus is waiting for you to call upon his name. Therefore, don’t get bogged down by the mountain of unfinished work waiting for you to tackle. Rather, pray that the Holy Spirit will send someone or something to help you complete that which is left unfinished.
