It May be Time for a Makeover

I love the extreme makeover shows. From the homes they build for needy families to the show where they take the woman’s closet and completely revamp her wardrobe and hairstyle. I think it’s fun! Makeovers are always enjoyable.  The home makeover show whisks the family away and then proceeds to remove what they lived in and create a completely new home – full of wonderful delights and things tailor made just for them. If a family member has a particular need or disability they build things with that in mind – just for them.  Each home they create would not work for every family, but it’s perfect for the intended ones. The only criterion is that the person or family has to be willing to give up what they have for what they get – not really knowing what they are going to receive. 

Are you wondering what it would be like to have a complete makeover? Are you looking around you and wondering how things got in the mess they are in? Wishing you could have a do-over or go back and get things right? Maybe you feel that you didn’t deserve to be where you are, but you’re there nonetheless.  Little things that needed to be fixed were left unattended and now you’ve got something that needs a complete makeover – your marriage, your home, your family, your finances, your heart, your spirit, your thoughts, your dreams, your hopes.

Oh beloved, there is One Who wants to give you an extreme makeover! He is the founding Father of makeovers! He is the One who can take anything and everything that is a mess in your natural life and create a completely new life! He is waiting in the wings for you to say to Him that it’s okay – you give yourself completely to His hands so that He can do what only He can do! You may be thinking that it’s a scary proposition to let God demolish what was yours and replace it with what is His, but you need to put that fear down. Look around you again and see – your mess is His opportunity! He not only can, He WILL make all things new for you and when He’s done it will be beyond your wildest imagination!

Give Him the keys to your heart this morning and let Him make it His home! Give Him the deed to your life and let Him make it brand new! No one has ever been disappointed with His results! Your foundation may have been shaky and turning to rubble, but the Lord’s foundation remains forever!  He loves you beloved and He’s always for you, so He can be trusted to do what you’ve only dreamed could be done!

Revelation 21:5 And the one sitting on the throne said, "Look, I am making everything new!" And then he said to me, "Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true."

Isaiah 43:19 For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Jeremiah 31:4 Again I will build you and you will be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel!  Again you will take up your tambourines, And go forth to the dances of the merrymakers
