I’m Addicted to Transformation

brush1Yes, it’s true. And, it’s beginning to affect me in humorous ways. For example, I often find myself watching HGTV or DIY channel on TV (instead of being parked on ESPN). I get sucked in by shows like Property Brothers, Love it or List it and Rehab Addict. I love how they find homes that look ridiculous and beyond hope — and then they redesign and renovate them into amazing homes.

A few other shows that catch my attention are Pimp my Ride, Restaurant Impossible, Fast & Loud, and Hotel Impossible (which had me in tears during the most recent episode). Weird, right? Ask me sometime, I’ll explain…

These shows stir my heart and remind me of my mission: seeing Christ transform people, families, churches, communities, cities and nations!

To look into the eyes of a person that’s been told they’re worthless or damaged – then see God’s potential & destiny – makes me come alive! Being able to watch the Holy Spirit turn them into the person they were created to be is breath-taking & amazing!

“Now the Lord  is the Spirit, and where  the Spirit of the Lord is, there is  freedom.  And we all, with unveiled face,  beholding  the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image  from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” 2 Corinthians 3:17-18.

It begins with FREEDOM through salvation and then continues as we allow the Spirit of God to radically repair and rebuild our hearts, minds, bodies and souls! A wrecked, abandoned, abused and empty house becomes the “temple of the Holy Spirit” 1 Corinthians 6:19.

Transformation is beautiful. Yes, it’s hard work with many unexpected expenses and delays, but oh so worth it IF you stay with it until it’s complete! When this happens, there is greater value than ever and others now want to tour your life to find out how they can be transformed too!
