Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3.20 NRSV)
It was a classic episode of "I Love Lucy." Lucy had taken a job at a candy factory and she was being trained on the first day of her new job. It was Lucy's duty to stand at a conveyor belt with pieces of candy continuously passing in front of her. She was to add the finishing touches to the process. Her boss had walked out of the room, but not before she emphasized strongly that her job was vital. She would lose her job if she let even a single piece of candy slip by her station untouched. At first Lucy was doing fine, but the conveyor belt gradually picked up speed and before long she was frantic, grabbing candy and stuffing it everywhere she could her mouth, her coat, her pockets, her dress so that no unfinished piece would make it through her station. It was a classic.

All of us are unfinished projects. Jesus is still at work in our hearts. Our lives may seem to go by too fast, but God is at work in you and in me.

Loving God, thank you for loving me enough to continue working in my life. Amen.
