  1. Yes Heather, sometimes I opt give God a little “hand” too. And that is precisely when I fall. . a mess indeed. Waiting on God is hard for the “do it all” woman. Sounds like we are similar there.
    This was a beautiful post about being a “beautiful mess”.
    But if we weren’t a mess, where would Jesus shine? That is exactly why the mess is beautiful.
    Thank you for these words this morning.
    Love and blessings to you.

  2. Dear Heather,
    I am so grateful that our Father takes us how we are, always loving, never condemning. That amazes me, humbles me , makes me want me reach for Him. His face is always turned to us, His gaze captivated by His daughters. Thank you so much for your words this morning.

    • His love amazes me everyday. It takes my breath away when I consider that our Holy Father accepts His children…mess and all. Have a beautiful day.

  3. You and I are twins! I always talk about my tendency to pull a Sarah when it comes to helping God along with His plans. Not that I’m actually giving another woman to my husband, but I do some pretty spectacularly silly things thinking I’m helping. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This truly blessed me.
    I once read a book, Messy No More, about messie people. It was not about sin, or helping God, but about overcoming household clutter.
    But this message brought it all back.
    Now, my new mantra will be: I Can Hardly Wait Until I Am “Messy No More”.
    In other words, when our Savior returns and we stop trying to do it all ourselves.
    Thanks for you encouraging words.

  5. Love this article! And I too know this all too well! I am sure our Lord is wishing I would just quit making messes and leave it to Him! Total trust and dependence on our Lord= no messes!!! Love you my Sister!!

  6. Always good to know I am not the only Heather who thinks she’s “got this” with a wink and a smile to God letting Him know she’s here for HIM. Yeah, right! Haha! Trust is a tough thing when you’ve been burned in the world. It makes it hard to accept that God will always be faithful when no one else ever has been.

  7. The woman of Revelation 12 is now hereโ€ฆ God is very precise: A woman delivers the true word John1:1, Rev 12:5, Rev 12:13 who restores Acts 3:21 all things to the world before Christโ€™s return. This woman exposes the lies of Satan who has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9. This woman creates a new thing in the earth by fulfilling God’s promise to Eve Gen 3:15, Jer 31:22, Isa 14:16. She is meek like unto Moses Num 12:3, she was raised up Acts 3:22 from the Laodicean church that becomes lukewarm because they refuse to hear her Rev 3:14-17. She is also bold like Elijah Matt 17:11, her witness alone turns the hearts of the fathers to the children Mal 4:5-6 to prepare a people for the Lords return before the great and dreadful day of the Lord Matt 17:3, Luke 9:30. Moses and Elijah are together with the word Matt 17:3 they all three are in this one woman. Those who will not hear Acts 3:23 the true word of God now delivered to the world free of charge, as a witness, at the heel of time from the wilderness Rev 12:6 will not be allowed inside the walls of Godโ€™s coming kingdom from heaven Rev 21. This true word turns the hearts of the fathers to the children of God by giving the truth that not one child of God will be put in a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5. God created evil Isa 45:7 to teach his children the knowledge of good and evil Rom 8:7, Gen 3:22 so that at their resurrection they become a god Matt 22:29-30, Ps 82:6. Prove all things. Be a workman that needeth not to be ashamed. You cannot rightly judge this unless you read all that has been written by this woman first Pro 18:13 http://minigoodtale.blogspot.com Time is short.

  8. Beautifully said! I struggle with getting caught in the “mess” of daily life. I don’t always stop and see the beauty in that mess. Thanks for sharing your words with us. We all need to be reminded.
