I love books and, except when I am reading (skimming) one in a library or a bookstore, usually I do not start reading a book with the intention of never finishing it.
But I have done so. Started reading books that I have yet to finish.
And I have started projects that are incomplete (and may never be finished).
But God always finishes what He starts.
This truth is especially encouraging when I have failed yet again. No. Not at completing a book or something superficial. At the real things of life.
I have His blessed assurance that He is working in me, giving me both the desire and the power to do what pleases Him (Philippians 2:13, NLT). And, that work that He has started, that good work? He will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6, HCSB). Thank You, ABBA.
