That first draft, whether just a thought, an idea, a concept, is sometimes a crude representation of what is to become, ultimately, the final product. It becomes transformed over time as it is crafted and re-worked, sometimes a number of times. The aim is to make it not just good enough but rather, just right.
When we were conceived we were the perfect representation of God’s creation. Nevertheless we were a mere draft of who we were meant to become. The experiences we have during the course of our lives, often times impacted by what others do or say to us, help to craft us into improved versions that bring us closer to the finished ‘product.’
Our aim throughout the draft process is to grow into someone better, someone who is not merely a replica of another but each representing a unique personality that has their unique contributions to make to the world we live in.
The end result sometimes bears little resemblance to the first draft, but if that end result represents an improvement over the draft, then we have indeed grown.
We might not yet be who we are meant to be, but if we hang in there we will no doubt prefer that outcome as we embark in pursuit of a BETTER us.

A truly different way of seeing the journey of our lives! I like the way it references the fact that we have no control and not so much in a another sense. Very thought provoking!
This aptly describes a lifetime! I love how we are led to imagine that we can control what we become but at the same time be reminded that we have little control! Very thought provoking!
Hi Beth, absolutely important that we recognize that growth is in our hands and that we ought to aim to grow. Thanks for your thoughts on this!
