Messed Up Lately?

Everyday? Maybe?

Some nights I can go to sleep knowing that I have given my best for God, which I realise is subjective based on my own measure but I think we all know whether we have been good for God or not.

Other nights maybe not so clear. Come on, let’s be honest. Stupid stuff. Bad words. Wrong thoughts. Getting cross. Plain laziness. Not giving God a second thought. Nothing major but enough to make me get right with God before I go to sleep.

Messing up is normal.

Yet I have this niggle. Perhaps, messing up should bring us to our knees.

Forgiveness and grace are not a license to continue making mess. Or to even stay in the mess. Instead we get the privilege of being able to live in the knowledge that God has waded into the mess of our lives and has got involved in the cleaning up process. And for that I am extremely grateful.

My prayer is simple. Sorry for my messing up God. Thank you for your forgiveness. Thank you for your divine grace that helps me becoming more like the person you have created me to be.

  1. I feel the same way. And lately, thankfully, I’ve been feeling this near-constant sense of gratitude toward God. I suspect that even the gratitude I feel is a gift from God. His love just overflows. And I’m grateful.
