I am a mess.
I fail every day. I have a house that looks like a tornado has gone through it. (I need to fire my maid! Opps that is me…) I get overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done. I get easily distracted. I rather stay in bed. I love to sleep and be lazy. I am so not type A. I get tired of going to the grocery store every week. I love food so my nutrition is a daily battle. I have PCOS which makes life interesting. (Not really – just frustrating). I like having a schedule but I don’t want to schedule every minute of my day. I hate to shop for clothes. I wish someone would do that for me. I always feel like a fashion mess. (BTW – I have tried Stitch Fix but so far it has been a fail for me). I am a social introvert. Sometimes I want to be around people, sometimes I don’t. I don’t think quick on the fly. I need time to process.
I could go on and on……
But in the midst of my messes – I have a God who loves me. I have a God who nevers gives up on me. I have a God who helps me and does not leave me to fend for myself.
You see – God loves messy people. If He didn’t we would all be in a world of hurt.
I love how the Bible is not a book of a bunch of perfect people. It is a book with a bunch of messy people that God uses and nevers gives up on.
God uses people in the midst of their messy.
You don’t have to get your act together for God to use you. It would never happen if that were the case.
You just have to be an open, willing vessel for Him to use. It doesn’t matter that your vessel has cracks in it. We are all broken vessels. The key is to give our broken pieces to Jesus and allow Him to put them back together and make us a beautiful, messy vessel for His glory.
Don’t you want to have your messy bring glory to Him? Don’t you want to see that your messy has a divine purpose?
Friends – that gives me hope. That gives me purpose. That fuels my perserverance.
