Day 11: Lord I’m a Mess, I need You… and That’s Okay

February 25, 2018

“If God is for us, who can be against  us?” (Romans 8:31)

This is a really good reminder in a time of my life where I often feel that even God is against me.

How often do I raise my hands in the air saying: that’s it! I give up! No More. Please. tap, tap, tap.

SPOILER ALERT: all the dang time!

How often do I raise my hands in praise: if our God is with us, what can stand against?!

SPOILER ALERT: rarely.

Want to know why more often than not I raise my hands in frustration instead of praise? The thrilling conclusion: I cannot see how things work towards the greater good.

I believe that everything happens for a reason. I also currently am wondering why God is forcing me to go through all these challenges.

I am constantly brought back to a prayer one of my mentors used to say:

Lord, I am a mess. I need you. And that’s okay. Over and over I work through this prayer, and over and over God gives me only enough light to see the next step that I need to take. Slow as molasses I am learning how to be okay with His outcome instead of my own outcome. Because if our God is for us, what can stand against us?
