    Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of his chariots, saying, "Don't fight with small nor great, except only with the king of Israel." When the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, they said, "It is the king of Israel!" Therefore they turned around to fight against him. But Jehoshap...

A Beautiful Mess

  • You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride. You have ravished my heart with one of your eyes, With one chain of your neck. How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much better is your love than wine! The fragrance of your perfumes than all manner of spices! Song 4:9 WEB

    It is so refreshing to see people who are truly in love. When a person first falls in love, they see nothing but the good in the other person. How beautiful, how perfect, oh how smart they are. If someone tries to warn them about how bad this person really is, they just completely ignore it. 'You are wrong! That is impossible!' They may even hit you...

    God loves you this way all the time. He does not see all of your faults and shortcomings for they are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ. He sees the good inside of you. If someone tried to tell Him how messed up you really are, He would ignore it. For He gave His only begotten Son to take away your sin. Jesus washed your sin away with His own blood.

    Paul wrote: 'For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.' (Romans 8:38'39).

    If you turn your back and walk away, He would be heartbroken, but He loves you enough to let you go free for we have the freedom of choice. You may be a beautiful mess to the Lord, but He loves you from head to toe, and nothing that you do is ever going to change that.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for loving me just as I am. Now I choose to love You back. Please walk with me, talk with me, and help me get to know You better today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those participating in the Creation Photography weekly themes, here is this week's challenge from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace." ~ Our next fun theme will be 'Seasons Change'! As always, our themes are wide open to creative interpretation so get creative showing us how seasons change in your life. My photos this week reflect some seasonal changes in our local area as well as a life change or two. Praying the seasons of your life are full of God's peace and joy!
