Be holy, because I am holy. 1 Peter 1:16
When God grabs hold of you,
when He takes your heart in His hands,
and starts to breathe His love into it,
and it rips and tears and breaks almost in two,
that process is holy.
Because you see,
when the love comes in,
it pushes the sin out.
And then you start to look less like you,
and more like Him.
And that is holy.
This painful rendering process is what is making you holy.
So stay there as long as He asks.
Walk around with your heart being rendered.
Buy your groceries with your heart being rendered.
Do your workouts with your heart being rendered.
Pump your gas with your heart being rendered.
It won't be easy and it will take a while.
It will take a lifetime, actually.
This rendering process will never come to completion till the day He calls you home.
But Beloved, it's okay.
You'll be okay.
You're just being made holy.
