Boy did it smell bad.
Stink, stank, stunk!
But boy, it was pretty.
I walked into the freshly painted area. My nose alerted me before I was even within viewing distance; somewhere, there had to be fresh paint! You know that smell. The kind that makes you want to turn on fans, open windows, or run the other way. Once I could see the results on the wall I thought, “it’s worth the smell to see the beautiful results.”
The stink is temporary, the results are beautiful.
We are fast approaching a big change in our Faithfully Following (FF) programs. For over six years we have been doing things pretty much the same and it’s been filled with goodness. But the walls are a little scuffed and in need of a fresh coat of paint. We feel a little like we are standing in front of a thousand paint chips at the home improvement store. You know the look. Wide-eyed with possibility, but not sure what to pick up. A little afraid of how that beautiful new blue or yellow will look slathered on the wall that have been beige.
Holding the pretty paint strips in our hands we did what every girl tends to do when facing a huge decision, we asked a friend for guidance.
“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:6
We’ve prepped our hearts, picked the colors, examined the selections with God, and endured the stink of opening cans of color that look a little intimidating and here is the beautiful result that is worth the stank:
Fresh and Focused for Women
