I was talking to someone the other day, and they said the phrase "God turns my mess into HIS MESSage." Wow. I just loved that.
My life can be messy. Seems like those same issues keep coming up and I wonder if I'll ever get it right! At the same time, I can look at some of my old issues that I've overcome and see that they are now a testimony to God's sovereignty over my life.
Truth is, we all have messy things in our life. I'm not talking about housekeeping. Our sin, our mistakes, our failures make our life a mess. Yet, when we trust in God and keep working through Him on our behaviors, he can change us. And when that happens, what a testimony! A chance to witness about the difference in our lives because of Jesus.
How about you? Feel like a mess sometimes? Why not turn your mess over to God, and see what testimony comes of it. A life turned to Christ. God turns our mess into His message.
1 Thessalonians 1:8a -- The Lord's message rang out from you...your faith in God has become known everywhere.
