Our church building is currently a mess as we continue in our renovations. But it is such an encouraging mess! The mess is being made, because we need to make space for God to move in more people’s lives . And so we don’t regret the mess, but see it as a necessary part of what God is doing.
To me this is an encouraging reminder of how we are often a mess, but God is at work and doing good things in our lives. We might need to have walls taken down and debris cleared out, but God is building something beautiful in us. Don’t fear the mess. Don’t feel like you have to clean yourself up and be tidy. Embrace what God is doing!
