Sometimes life does seem like a muddled mess even when we know it’s not because God always has a perfect plan, and eventually we will see that what we thought was a muddled mess was actually the time we should been grounded in our trust in Him. Have I always? I have been a failure in many of those seasons, but the longer I know Him the more I see how He has turned these messes into beautiful things. He can turn our trials into triumphs, messes into beauty, victors into victorious.
What are some of my muddled messes/trials:
Watching my Mom suffer depression when Dad died. Watching her suffer from a bacteria she caught during a broken leg repair and then she lost her leg and spent months in the hospital.
Seeing a grandson born with a horrible disease not knowing if he would live.
Watching children suffer through infertility and miscarriage
Lessons I’ve learned in the muddle:
God is always in control.
It’s may not be okay, but I am going to be okay as long as I lean into Him.
He is the only one that will never hurt or harm me.
He makes my messes a testimony, a story, His story. My history is His-story.
He gives me strength to power through those muddled messes.
Are you in a mess today? How are you turning it over to God?
