In the state of Ohio, there are over 1000 road and bridge construction projects in 2018. These projects cost over 2.3 billion dollars. That means we need to get used to orange barrels, cones, delays and detour signs on our way to work, school or other destinations. It would seem that our roads are always under construction. The same could be said about our live as we consider our journey with God. Those who are in a relationship with God will encounter a life full of repairs, rebuilds and restorations. In this three-week series we will look at the lives of biblical characters who underwent a God reconstruction. What can the story of these character’ lives teach us about our own lives?
