It’s Friday (almost) and it’s time for Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker. Where we write for just five minutes, with no editing and no planning.
Thoughts flit around, crashing into each other and falling into pieces. As hard as I try to pull together a concrete thought, they just keep slipping through my fingers like smoke. Finally, I surrender to the mess. I toss in the towel.
Friends, if you could see into my head sometimes, you’d think I was losing it. Sometimes it’s a big ole mess, and I struggle just to sort things out and make a coherent thought flow past my lips.
We’ve all got some mess in our lives, even if it looks like we have it all figured out. We can hide it, or we can embrace it and let Jesus turn it into something beautiful.
We can say “I’m fine” and give a fake smile, or we can bear our souls and say “I’m not fine, but someday I will be.” Let’s embrace the honesty and start turning our messes into masterpieces.
Instead of putting on a mask and shoving the dust under the rug, let’s get real. Let’s toss some glitter into that mess and invite some friends in for some love and healing.
