#write31days – Day 8 – Sometimes Life Seems Like A Muddled Mess


picmonkey-image-21Sometimes 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?
