Quiet Reflections: Undone

From a Mother's Heart to her Daughters....

Dear girls, I want you think about a word and what it means. That word is "undone".

What does it mean to you? Your first thought?

Did you think of a hair bow and how it can become undone? A shoelace? Your hair? Typically our thoughts go to something that was completed that is suddenly back to its original state. Right?

A bank account can be like that. You deposit your check and that amount becomes "undone" as you spend the money.

You spend an hour cleaning your room and within 5 minutes of having friends over it becomes "undone".

Your gas tank works the same way, right? You fill it up and eventually it becomes "undone" again.

There are some things that cannot become "undone"....your homework? The words you say? Going against a rule? Or a moral value?

To be "undone"...is it a good thing or a bad thing? Can choices we make in life change us beyond the ability to be who we were intended to be? Can our mistakes chain us down and debilitate us? Is that what makes us "undone" or is there something else more powerful to being "undone"?

Listen to this song...

Can I encourage you to look at being "undone" in a different view? A worthy view? A spiritual view? Can I implore you to consider that the best thing we could do is to be "undone" for God? Isaiah from the Bible had an opportunity to taste heaven and to see God and when he came back to his reality on earth, look how he responded....

Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone and ruined, because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts! ~ Isaiah 6:5

That small glimpse of eternity broke him to his core. He realized how selfish his life had been and he was a man of God, someone spiritually strong like our pastors. If he was shamed with his life after seeing heaven, where does that leave you and me?


Dare I call you and myself to live a life "undone", focusing on the eternal over the here and now while on this earth? Can we live "undone" from the chains of our past mistakes and live for God? Can we live "ruined" by the worlds standards but "undone" for eternities standards?

Oh girls, we so need to live "undone"..."ruined". We should live as if we believe Isaiah 53:5
But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.

Does your life demonstrate you understand the journey of Calvary and the Cross? Is He worth being "undone" for? Is He worth being "ruined" for?
He must increase, but I must decrease.  ~ John 3:30

Lets live this out together...for our God. I love you!

Black Leather Jackets said...

A great article and very insightful. I think you hit the nail on the head.

Fashion is the constant in all walks of life. Everyone should have a black leather jacket in their collection at all times, it goes with everything, I have a number of black leather jackets in my wardrobe, one for every occasion.
