My Mess

This time of year, our house, yard, garage, clothes, dog, and much more gets extra messy.  I love my farmers but they sure do get dirty!

A friend of mine is a city slicker, she admits, but thinks she should perhaps be a farmer.  😉  Beth moved to Minnesota from Florida a few years ago.  Bless her.

I sent her a picture of the mess I swept up from our floors the other day, asking her to seriously think through her desire to be a farmer. 😉😉


Each week, many gather at our church that are on a journey of; recovery from addiction, grief, depression, divorce, and other hurts, habits and hang ups.  I can’t even begin to describe the impact this has had on my life.  It is a place where brokenness, messiness, and dependency on Jesus is certain.  Our church calls the evening ‘Journeys’.

We have t-shirts at Journeys that say…


No matter what your mess looks like, (kitchen floor and all!) you aren’t alone.  When I find myself in the thick of a mess, I hang onto words such as these…

Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.  The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

No mess is too big for our God.  Amen.

  1. A word from this “city slicker” regarding farming…the only thing I would truly be good at is driving a straight line! (Perhaps I have a few OCD tendencies? 😉) Beyond that I don’t have much of a green thumb, although I can work hard! Thanks for tying me into this blog! I especially like the link to our messes being a part of God’s message! You know it is so true! And thank you for walking through some of my messes as my friend! You have been a blessing!❤️
