Our minds are like old cars-driven on the old Oklahoma pothole filled roads, taking the bumps as we go along. Dented and dinged by life passing us by. Aging and rusting by the storms of the seasons-for some, twisted and broken by ravishing Oklahoma winds and hail. 

Romans 12:2 (NIV)
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

But comes along a maker, a restorer of life. One that can make all things new. He will take away the rusty hurt and the dented scares. He will replace the broken finders and bumpers with His patience, love and care. He will replace the shattered windows with clear translucent glass allowing a glowing appearance of life to be seen. Yes, he is a restorer of life and He's been there all along, just waiting for you to be ready to restore. 

Revelation 21:5 (ESV)
"And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
