Mess

more on messes…

Thoughts about my messy corner where He meets me continue

I think about other areas of my life…
areas where I’ve grown in order…
less messes in many places…

I think about the mess in my corner…
it’s a place I would love to be orderly and beautiful…
a place with no clutter… clean… pristine…

I even think about starting over…
in a new area…
a space dedicated to Him…
(not that his one isn’t… it just doesn’t look like my flesh thinks it should look…)

And I realize…
this place… messy… cluttered… out of control…
might just be… exactly the way He wants it…

It just might be a reminder of my messes…
my need for Him…
how much I am NOT in control…

Yes… I think messy is where He wants me to be…
when I seek Him…
a humble hovel… of need…

And me? I’m a mess. I’m nothing and have nothing:
make something of me. You can do it; you’ve got what it takes…
Psalm 40:17 Msg
I praise You Lord… the Cleanser of the messes I make…
