Can We Fix It? Yes, We Can!

God continues to show me that I am a fixer. If anything or anyone doesn't work right, I want to find the solution and map out the plan to "functioning properly". If you have a problem and need an answer, I am the girl! If I don't know the answer, I will think and ponder and research until I find it.

 A few years ago this guy named "Bob the Builder" showed up and stole my life's mantra: "Can we fix it? YES, we can!" Poser, that's what I say. After all, he only works with wood and hammers.

I, on the other hand, have a much more difficult task. I work on people. Yes, I know it is a huge task, but someone has to do it, right? And God has called me to love and serve others, so I am glad to be of service, even if the path is sometimes rough. Are you beginning to get a taste of my "messiah complex"? Are you gagging yet?

So, as I was saying, God continues to show me that I am a fixer. That is, God continues to reveal to me my own brokenness. My own false belief that I am the answer to someone's or anyone's problem. It takes quite a bit of pride to put myself in this position of superiority and God, well, He is always opposing the proud and giving grace to the humble!

 Because I want to be on God's side and not against Him, He is teaching me over and over again that I am broken too and that I cannot fix even my own condition. It actually took some wood and hammers and nails, but really it took Jesus, the perfect sacrifice to pay for all of my sins, mistakes, and brokenness. Maybe it's time I rest in Him and let Him do His complete work in me and in others. Because He is no poser.
