In the Messiness of Our Lives
Thank you for this Alan. Your testimony "One thing I know is that God is with me in my mess. He never leaves me. I am never alone. Whatever the turnings of the wheel of life, God remains the centre, the North Star of my celestial heavens " speaks volumes and encourages me on my journey. I also like the title of this musing. It aligns with Luke Lezon's YOUR MESS MATTERS where he invites the reader to consider the following question: what if the mess of your life is where God is doing His best work? I have to admit however, that I often dream of a life without the mess I created. I guess I need to be patient, and wait upon the Lord.
I'm cracked up as my life is a mess, but ot true that our spirituality is based on His Righteousness and my flaws is just waiting His next masterpiece.
Thanks Alan for posting. My thoughts swerve between messy and tidyness like so many others. Christ is with us and prays for our bending our will to his through his incomparable love for us. Whether messy or tidy, his love is amazing and he has not said you must NOT be messy or that you MUST BE NEAT, rather 'I LOVE YOU, TRUST IN ME!
Thanks for your comment Lorraine—indeed we need to hear God’s ongoing response of “I love you” and “Trust in me “. It makes all the difference for everyday reality.
