He comes in the midst of messes…

On the radio today… I heard the testimony of  a woman who made a mess of her life… a mess she wanted to run from… die because of… and right in the middle of her mess He comes… The Cleanser of the mess I’ve made

Her story caused me to think back on words written yesterday… overwhelmed by Him… in the middle of a mess I’d made…

Truth beams from her story…
and from my corner…
He comes in the midst of messes…

He does not show up because we have it all together…
He does not show up because we are perfect…
He shows up where it’s messy…

He comes to those who are poor and needy…
He comes to those who embrace their mess…
He comes to those who cry out for help…

He comes in the midst of messes…

And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating
with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples,
“Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
And when Jesus heard, he said to them, “Those who are well
have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Mark 2:16-17 ESV
You don’t need to have it all together…
you just need to know you’ve made a mess of things…
you need to know… you need His help…
And then… He comes… no matter the mess…
