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 4:9'10 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 completely ignore it. "You are wrong! That is impossible!" They may even hit you...

    God loves you this way all the time. He doesn't see all of your faults and shortcomings, for the blood of Jesus Christ covers them. 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: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Amen and Amen, Pastor!!! HE loved us first, there is no greater love than His, HE layed down His life for us, so that we can live, it should be so easy to love Him back, and yet I wonder why we take so long to realize WHO HE is and what HE has done for us, and accept Him and surrender, worship Him and love Him with all of our hearts and souls!

I prayed over the years for my own home since 2007. That year I had to sell my car, I lost my apartment because I could not afford the rental payment, and I lost custody of my three children because I had no way to take care of them. Now 17 years later an opportunity has opened up for me to get my own apartment. I am waiting for a unit to open up for me because I am still on the housing waiting list. I have to move to The District of Columbia for Public housing when an aprtment becomes available. All those years I prayed for my own place while i Had to live with my family. One thing that I will say is that God did not forget what I had prayed to him for. Even now I am a little nervous to move on from my family. I told my brother and he said don't worry, You can call me every day if you need to until you get comfortable living on your own. My boyfriend said that he will visit me all the time. I just thank God for that. The fact that my prayers were answered is the blessing. It really don't feel like it's been that long ago. I know that I have to get furniture and appliances for my home. I am starting over. But I am Happy that doors are opening up for me.

Keep praising god for His meeting your needs. Father I pray the Whole Armor of God over my sister. Guide her steps. Send Christians, new friends into her life. Fill her new home not just with furniture but occupy it with Your Holy Spirit so everyone who enters will be blessed. In Jesus Christ Name.
