It’s always been a dream of mine to restore an old car someday. And not like the junkers you see in the photo above!

No way.

I’ve always been drawn to the late 60s and early 70s ponycars. Mustangs. And I know that I’d wanna get one that had a gas-guzzling, roaring engine, too.

People are kinda like cars, too. We wear out. We need restoration from time to time.

Except that, with us, we need the one who built us in the first place to restore us, spiritually.

I just hope that I get a nice, fast engine when I go to that church retreat next month!

Lord, restore my faith to be the person I was built to be. Amen.
