God Specializes in Complete Restorations

Posted on: 7-15-112017

“The car is a total loss.” These are the words that my husband reported to me regarding our son’s car today. I was in a car accident a few days ago in the car and the insurance adjuster decided to total the car because the damages are too extensive and the cost to repair it would be greater than the value of the car. These are not the words I was hoping to hear! My son got a great deal on that car and has only had it a year. I was really hoping the car could be savaged because I know he will have a hard time finding another deal as good as that one. Hope as I might, that’s just not what’s going to happen. The car is beyond hope and cannot  be fixed! Some of us may feel like we are that car. We may feel as if life has left us beyond repair and without hope. We may feel as if we are a total loss because our damage is just too extensive. However, we are unlike the car because we have a God who can take the most devastating, beyond hope, twisted up disaster of a life and make it brand new! He can not only repair us, but He can make us better than we ever were. God will never look at us and say that we are a total loss! In fact, He specializes in complete restorations!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
