Just before I left for work, she calls out!
“Mommy, Moooommmyy, come see!”

I rush to the living room.
The sight! Oh my Lord! Not when am about to leave for work!

Am tempted to lash out but I hold back!

“Baby girl, you made a mess! why?”
She says, “See, I made a big big mess! see! It looks like stars of God! See!”

I can’t see any stars, only a big mess and a whole clean up before I leave… and a tick tock clock that reminds me of the traffic am about to run into.

Then I thought to myself, “Lord I have never seen this many stars in a mess! Could you be having a message for me that I need to hear?”

…as I drove to work, He had a message for me..

A message from your mess!

See, we think that the Lord’s message always comes crisp clean to us. No messes. Just white linen dipped in lavender!
Yet, God has to make a mess out of you for His message to be born!

He loves the messy marriages to prove that indeed He can restore what no man can! TIME!
He loves the messed hearts, to prove that He can restore and create new hearts altogether.

He loves the messed family relationships to prove that beyond any doubt, He can restore and mend the broken bridges.

He loves the broken roads to prove that He make a way where there seems to be no way.
He loves the patched hearts and souls to prove that He can make us lie down in green pastures once more.
He makes a message out of any mess!

Instead of being myopic as I was this morning, ask the Lord to teach you and give you His message through any mess you could be going with!

Yes there are “many stars of God in that mess! you just have to see through the eyes of the Lord!”
