One Hot Mess~

Oh boy was I ever a mess!!

And certainly  not in a cute way~

My one hot mess consist of several messes...................

Mess of a heart.....

Mess of emotions.......

Mess of stinkin' thinking.....

Mess of relationships......

Mess of priorities.......

Get the picture??

One mess of a picture ~sigh~

There was no rhyme  or reason to my mess. I believed I was on the right path. I didn't think outside my box. It was all about the here and now, never looking down the road.

I was good at pretending all was well.

I was good at hiding my hurt and pain.

Dear Lord......What a mess~

One Hot Mess!!

I was a professional at skirting around the issue only to find later my mess had consumed my every fiber.

Once again the "if I am perfect, I will not be rejected but loved" thinking surfaced~

To not acknowledge my mess,I had myself believing it didn't exist.
( Ignoring the reality of my mess did not make it disappear)

I prolonged my healing, my restoration, and my forgiveness.

I had, by all accounts, ran in circles for years!!

Was my life in a "dizzy tizzy??"

You betcha~
~ Ewwwww~


Through all my mess, my daddy God never gave up on me!!

Thank you Sweet Jesus!!!!

He sent love to heal my broken heart.
He sent grace to get me through my obstacles.
He sent mercy to show me forgiveness.

 I have now become HIS mess~
Beautifully and wonderfully made, HIS!!!!

Psalm 139:14

14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[a]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

 There are days I am still a mess.
My thinking, my actions and my words.

My heart and emotions can become messy..........
The enemy will try to remind me of who I was.

My mistakes............
My past hurts............
My past words and actions.....

He will try to have me run that circle of "dizzy" again.

However my daddy God says I am His!!

I am proud to be "God's Mess."
I am a new creation in him and all my circle running days have passed away.

He met me right where I was.............. 
And continues to meet me every day~

The world will have us to believe we are too messy for God.
That our  failures and mistakes have pushed us past the point of God loving us.


When he sees me heading back to the circle of dizzy, he gently reminds me who I am in him.

I am not the same mess I was.

I , once again am His mess, one willingly to allow him to mold and shape me.
To love me, hold me and encourage me.
To show me mercy and grace.

My prayer today is for you to allow your daddy God to meet you right where you are.
Allow him to stop your circle cycle. Give Him your mess.
And become HIS!!!

There is hope when we become his mess, there is grace and mercy that is never ending.
There is love that in unlike no other.
Forgiveness and peace that can't be measured.


Much love~

2 Corinthians 5:17

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.


  1. I love this post and am thankful to see it here. When I was first writing my blog, it was because I felt a mess and wanted to connect with anyone whose life wasn't neat and perfect, because ours wasn't. I speak with many women as a counselor, and women are afraid to share their messiness for fear of judgment, so they suffer in silence. I did. Thank you so much for this post.

    Thank you for your honesty and for sharing!! I understand the fear of sharing "messiness". And the fear of judgment. I have learned by sharing my mess, I am free from it and the jugdmentof others.

    ~and the truth shall set you free~

    Many Blessings to you!!
