OK – not all of that is true. I did build all those things and many more creations with Legos. But to say I used to love them isn’t completely accurate. I still love them.
I’m making a Lego motorcycle as I write this. Really. I used to ride a motorcycle, but it wasn't nearly as cool as this one. . .
Creating is refreshing. It’s energizing. It’s wonderful.
Seeing something you create destroyed and devastated is awful. It is painful and frustrating.
And, remembering the painful destruction, a re-creative hope is again wonderful.
Isaiah 65:17-25 expresses a re-creative hope after pain and anguish over destruction. It speaks of hope for the people who had lost so much in the time it was written. I think it's purpose still is to inspire a re-creative hope.
Imagine what the possibilities ahead are. They are endless and they are delightful.
And I think this motorcycle is delightful, too.
