Who Makes It Happen

I saw the dilapidated gun cabinet for sale on a local facebook buy/sell site.  Almost immediately I "saw" a possibility.  I posted the process of its transformation on my Thrifty Style blog.  In the process of composing that post, I realized it was not what I saw, but who made it happen that was important.

Immediately, I saw another Life Lesson!  Maybe you can see it, too...

God began doing a good work in you, and I am ·sure [confident; persuaded] he will continue it until it is ·finished [completed; perfected] ·when Jesus Christ comes again [on the day of Christ Jesus; the final day of judgment and reward]  Philippians 1:6 

For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, 
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.  Ephesians 2:10

It's not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. 
What's important is that God makes the seed grow.  I Corinthians 3:7

It wasn't about what I saw, but who made it happen.
It's NOT about what I see, but WHO makes it happen!


  1. That's beautiful Rebecca. Both the new shelf and the lesson. :)

  2. I really have to hand it to Gary, he always does a great job in these transformations!

  3. Simply amazing! It looks so different from the original.

  4. Great life lesson!! I am so glad that HE is doing the work!!

  5. Rebecca, it was so good to hear from you and for me to come visit. It's been awhile. I so enjoyed my catch up here. You offer so many things to ponder.

    Thank you!
