He's having to move for work to the great metropolis of Ballymena where the buns are cheap and the girls are pretty. In order to do this he needed somewhere to live and, praise God he's found a nice place.
With a tight budget a grand designs style refurb was never on the cards so really there was only one thing to do - paint. An quick assessment was made as to the security of the wallpaper followed by a run to B&Q for some paint and equipment and the freshening-up could begin.
One of Rogers very few faults is his lack of patience with a paintbrush so I was tasked with the 'cutting-in' and he got on with the rollering. It is amazing what one coat can do, there was instant change, an immediate revival of the room. When one of us would leave the room and come back in we would comment on the great work we had done in transforming the room. Just one coat and the room was perfect.
Don't despair if you feel that you are not yet complete if sin stubbornly persists in your life. While we're still in this life we just have to work at it in partnership with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit enables us to overcome these things and we have to have a willing heart. But then, when this life is over, we get our second coat. We are made perfect in heaven, we live with God, no pain, no suffering, no blemishes.
Jesus is the completer, He will finish what he started. The second coat will come in time but even after the first you are looking great!
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
