This month at Fancy Little Things 
we have been focusing on the truth 
that we are all a work in progress.

Paul tells us in Philippians 1:6
"being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" 

and with it we are brought to a safe place in our hearts.
 A place where we can embrace our imperfection and inadequacies.
A place where we are humbled and brought closer to God.

Though we were designed to be creative, resourceful, righteous representations of our King, we were also designed to be flexible, obedient and brave.  The Lord gave us a heart that beats wildly for those around us; so loudly that we sometimes forget it is emanating from our own bodies.  We experience life with a broken heart at times.  We fall emotional at the drop of a hat.  We fall apart and are often the only one around to lift ourselves up again.

It's because He is working in us with every breath we take...
