“Now to the God who can do so many awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we ever could ask or imagine through the power at work in us” (Ephesians 3:20, The Voice).
“God makes miracles out of messes.”
That was on a church sign that I passed on my way home.
How many of us have felt like we’ve made a mess of everything– careers, finances, relationships?
How many times have so many of us reached a certain point in life and looked back and wondered if we’d done anything of significance that might leave a lasting influence?
God makes miracles out of messes. God takes chaos and brings out of it a new creation.
There is nothing and no one too far gone, too messed up, too broken beyond repair for God to use for His glory.
There is no such thing as too late for God to begin His transformative work.
Maybe that gives you renewed hope.
Maybe that’s a lifeline for you to cling to in a sea of voices that are telling you that you’ve wasted your life.
God makes miracles out of messes.
Let that be your mantra as you fall asleep tonight, knowing that God never ceases watching over you and working in you for your good.
