God in the Mess

I never tire of hearing the stories of people who have overcome evil. Those that have forged their testimonies in the fires of adversity. Those willing to stand and tell their story without fear of the reprisal of man.

 

I love people who have looked the devil in the eye and laughed. Those that do a happy dance on his head.

 

 

I applaud the faithful but unknown, the afflicted but coming out!

 

I stand with those who have fought injustice and lived to tell about it! I laugh with those who have borne the adversity of sin and have the courage to say that was me, but once, I was lost now I am found!

 

I hear God whisper to my heart, I hear those voices of the sad, the lonely, and the abused. I came to set them free. I fight alongside of those who struggle to come out of bondage, darkness and fear.

 

 

I laugh with those who rejoice because they are finally free

 

I weep with those who have yet to see how much I really love them. I long to hold the suffering child, the husband-less wife or the wife-less husband, the motherless or fatherless child. I long to gather those who are weeping, bleeding and worn to my heart. I would sing over them gentle songs of assurance. Even now I am weeping for those yet to come!

 

This is how I know that God gets in the mess of our lives and He works us like a baker kneading dough until He shapes unto into a perfect picture of Himself! For those who say that is selfish, I want to remind you that whether you agree or not you are replica of God Himself. He was beaten and battered like dough for us to show us the perfection of beauty in suffering.

 

You were created expressly for Him. He desires to walk this out with you and be all that you lack in your life. There is nothing visible or invisible, human or otherwise who can fill the hole in your heart.  Only God can do that!

 

I know for a fact that He gets in the mess, because He got in my mess and He is fashioning something beautiful out of the rag I wove for myself. I gave Him a worn out, beat up, stretched out of shape piece of fabric that I had. He said He would take that which is ugly and make it something of marvelous beauty.

 

 

There is no way I could refuse an offer like that.

 

So I surrendered. It takes my breath away when I recall how far I have come in my journey.

 

 

I’m so thankful for someone who looked at me and said I want her, I want to love her, I will pursue her until she says yes! I have gained so much more than just peace. I have gained a faithful friend and a faithful lover and friend! Someone I cannot shake even if I tried!

 

 

I have gained a devoted and beautiful restorer of messes.

 

If you have a mess, come to God! Call on Jesus He will come! The bible says that if you confess with your mouth, believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead! You shall be saved! Saved is not a bad word considering where lost takes you!

 

 

In Christ, Shawn
