The Meet Me in the Middle Project is all about the Before & After. Here is a bit more about this great opportunity to proclaim the gospel on social media, from the Project’s website:
Why do any of us love Before & After stories? New hairdos, wardrobe overhauls, refurbished vehicles and kitchens, weight-loss/fitness makeovers…we LOVE to see the evidence of change.
But what does it take to get there? To get to the beautiful ending? Work. Sweat. Maybe some tears. We crave the perfect, the product, but often we despise the process it takes to get there.
Most of us dread the workout, but want to look great in our jeans. We don’t enjoy cleaning, but we love the shiny, sweet-smelling endpoint. We don’t like waiting, We want results, and we want them fast. We don’t want to wait for anything. This is the way of the world.
Yet, this is not the way of the Lord:
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
What if…we realized that most of life is lived in the Middle? That most of life is work, sweat, and tears?
What if…we saw a Before & After and did not covet the result, but admired the effort exerted?
What if…we acknowledged that every “Big Reveal” pales in comparison to the biggest reveal of them all—the Resurrection?
God made us. He knows how we appreciate object lessons. Every Before & After points to real work…and ultimately to the Worker of all improvements. God is our Redeemer, Reconciler, and Renewer. He is the Powerful Provider, the Perfecter of Our Faith, the Purifier of Our Souls.
Today, I wanted to share a few how-to videos for anyone who wants to participate through Pinterest, but is unsure of how to make the collage or join the link-up with a Permalink. It is really simple. And it will be really fun, if you join us. I told my friend Kathy today, this Project is like planning a big party and hoping someone will come. Will you come? Will you Meet Me in the Middle? If the videos don’t immediately appear below, please refresh your browser!
