When we are using the word done, it denotes finality.
In Genesis when God created the heavens and the earth, the light and the dark, the water and the land, and all living creatures then Adam and Eve, then on the 6th day he said, “It is Good”. He was done and he rested on the 7th.
There has been many times that I have used the word “done” to denote finality with something I was doing. Way too many to count, some of them had happy endings and some were a sorrowful new start but regardless, I was “done”.
I’m grateful that God is never done with me. And I have given Him plenty of reason why He should be.
2 John 1:2
because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever
I’m grateful that I can wake up, mess up and start again everyday and He will never be done with me as long as I continue to seek Him. Walking each day striving to be all that He made me to be. So I can look forward to one day saying “it is Done” and joining Him at His right hand in Heaven.
Thank You Lord for never being done with me. Amen!

Rhonda, you have made a most interesting observation between “done” and “good”. Both words conveying a completion but with such a different connotation. I am most grateful to have been your neighbor this morning as I needed to read your words this morning. Blessings!
Thank you so much for your encouragement! Somedays I wonder if it’s my turn to be done with writing. Do you ever feel like that. Is it for naught? And then I get right back up and do it again. God gives me reassurance through people like you. Thanks again!
Wake up, mess up, and start again. O! I do like that!
Thank you for your encouragement!
Great post, Rhonda. No matter how fast we run from Him, He’s always right behind us, ready for us to turn around with tear-stained faces.
Always! Don’t know if I’d made to NOW if I hadn’t had Him by me. Thanks for the encouragement!
Great closing prayer. I’m so glad He isn’t done with me too. Thanks for sharing. FMF #61
