Jeremiah 23:24 (NIV)
24 Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.
For many years I have maintained my own fingernails. It was a consistent weekly Sunday night ritual, until I started knitting. Pushing back cuticles, cutting and filing followed by slow patient polishing. Ok maybe not so patient during polishing, as evidenced by errant brush strokes that will peel off with soap and water.
A very rare and special treat was a trip to a nail salon for an infamous mani-pedi. Rare because I am blessed with an aunt, who happens to be a top of the line nail technician, who always ensured that I have enough professional polishes, emery boards and oil to keep my nails in perfect condition from home.
That rare treat and my slacking due to knitting almost destroyed my nails. I like many other innocent women, I contracted a fungus. My always strong nails clouded and were slowly dying, from the inside. Due to my less than fastidious care and keeping them covered in polish I was unaware of the damage.
My unsaved life was the same, all spit and polish on the outside, yet crumbling and dying underneath. A life specialist Named Jesus had to be called upon, He alone could fix my life. From the inside out He worked to clear out the damaged parts and replace them with pockets of His Love until my life was so full the damage became a memory from which others could be served. My nails also needed a professional, so I texted my aunt and she told me what to do to bring back the health of my fingertips.
Making His praise glorious!
