Perfect Mess

"But by the grace of God I am What I am, and His Grace to me was not in vain"
I Corinthians 15:10


Forgive me, Father, for BLOCKING You out

And then BLAMING You for all the ways



Forgive me, Father, for forgetting that YOU CAME

To be my GATE, opening me into the security of Your unknown

And not my PRISON door, that I lock

To keep myself safe within my insecure little BOXES


Thank-You, Father, for knowing how to OPEN prison doors

And how to BURST through brick walls

Even as I blame You for taking away the so called SECURITY that they provide

Thank-You for loving me too much to watch me dry up within those WALLS


Thank-You for teaching me that the MYSTERY OF YOU

Is greater, stronger, and safer than the KNOWN OF ME


Thank- You for loving me TOO MUCH at times

And JUST ENOUGH at others


Thank-You for showing me what I look like COMPLETELY UNDONE

And helping me KNOW

That I can still stand- EVEN THEN

Because even if I couldn’t bear to see myself THEN

I could SEE YOU

And who I AM IN YOU



And now I KNOW


I can be HER HERE.

  1. My heart is weeping in concert with yours over His faithfulness and beauty…
    so starkly contrasted with our lack of integrity and ugly brokenness.

    What an amazing hope we have that keeps on growing with every day He walks with us!

    “The more I seek You, the more I find You… And the more I find You, the more I love You…”

    I thank Him for His work in you, Rhonda, that encourages and inspires me to open myself up to Him more today than I did yesterday…
