Introducing Perfect Mess
1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. (ESV)
Such a beautiful reminder from Micah 4:1-5 that God, alone, can and will ultimately restore peace to our world. A day is coming when our faith will have become our sight and as it is in heaven will become as it is on earth.
Oh Jesus, help us SEE that what keeps us from peace is our own inability to SEE ourselves as You do. Some of us refuse to see our sin and self reliance that keeps us apart from You. And some of us refuse to see that You truly have overcome and are overcoming ALL that involves us, so we hold on, instead of releasing what rightfully belongs to You.
Forgive us for all the ways we refuse to enter into Your peace now, and open our eyes to SEE You Alone, the One Who IS and will always be our peace. Amen.

Psalm 139:7 "Where shall I go from your spirit ? Or where shall I flee from your presence?"
You can never flee from Me! Where ever you go, no matter what you are doing, I AM THERE. Where can you flee from My Spirit? Once you are mine, you may try and flee from awareness of Me, but I never flee from My awareness of you.
Infact, I love to draw near to you in some of your most messy moments, those moments when you try hardest to flee from Me. I paid a High price to be near you through even your Biggest Messes.
It is My Joy to be your comfort, your truth, your provision through all of your earthly journey.
This is because I Love You! And I just love when you let yourself belong to Me, and trust Me with ALL you are.
Whatever you do, let it be out of revelation of my love for You, not out of fear of what I haven't done for you or others you love.
In this way, you are free from disappointment because your eyes are set to hope in Me alone, the One Who died to walk beside you all the way home.
Your frame is never hidden from Me, I know ALL of your boundaries even better than you do. I SEE you, and I love you so
I long for you to SEE Me, rest in Me and enjoy this journey we are on together. You are my child now and forever, nothing can separate you from My love which is GREATER than all your attempts to hide from it.

How often we choke out God with our own thoughts and judgments about our circumstances. Instead of allowing Him to become a River in us, flowing everything exactly as He has ordained, we try to build dams in our minds that hinder Him from accomplishing His fullness in us.
Oh, how we love to try and box God in to our own understanding.
Yet, once we do, we end up with something less than God, small, drying up creeks, full of muddy water that only serve to disappoint and underwhelm us.
God is too big and powerful to fit within our dammed up understanding of Him.
We are better off to jump in, full body surrender, and let Him carry us off into His greatest adventures for us.
Will we be safe?
Will we be in control?
These are the very questions that hinder us from the adventure He is waiting to give us in His River of life.

"Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound!" 2 Timothy 2:8-9
This bound world does not rejoice losing its hold on those within it. So, we should not be surprised that sometimes the more unbound we become, the more lonely and misunderstood we also become in this world.
We are blessed that many of us may never know the literal chains as Paul did, whom the world tried to shut away because his freedom in Christ was too threatening to it's bound up ways, and those entangled within them.
The longer I walk with Jesus, the more REAL the pathway is before me, and the clearer my vision becomes.
Where I use to feel the chains, and the weight of those whom I love in the world stilll bearing down on me, I am learning to press in to Jesus all the more, and instead of being pulled back into thier bonds, Christ is teaching me instead Press them into His freedom.
Only the Word unbinds us and sets us free, so I will be bound to Word, and pray that others might SEE freedom and become unbound too.

These are the opening lines to a prayer I wrote this morning (you can find the whole poem on my blog in my intro).
I didn't realize that God has used these last 6 years of unraveling my life to move some of the biggest mountains that I never knew needed moving.
Sometimes you don't realize the mountain God has been moving in you until you both walk past it and He has you look back at it together. And what maybe you thought was a season of disappointment in your family, or unexpected illness, or dealing with sudden loss looks suddenly DIFFERENT in His eyes.
It was SO BIG at the time, and all you saw was THAT THING that you wanted God to move.
But now, as you look at it together you SEE.
It took that THING give you this moment.
This moment of SEEING that mountain and REALIZING what looked like a THING on the OUTSIDE to you was REALLY a WALL on the INSIDE towards God.
And all the pressing and pushing it took to survive THAT season was really a pressing out of yourself and pushing into Jesus.
It's not hard to move a mountain that Jesus has already moved.
It's just hard for us to press ourselves out of the way enough to SEE what He already SEES.
I pray you will take a look at my blog and read the poem Her Here, written as a prayer of gratitude to God, the One Who is moving mountains in me.
May Jesus richly bless you today in His Abundant Love.
His and yours,

What could our days, our moments, our lives become if we shifted our eyes from looking upward to our "one-day" God to inward to see our "right now" God?
Are we capable of truly grasping such a life? If not, we may be living a life less than the one Jesus died for us to have.
It's always safer to believe for "one-day", yet Jesus is I AM, and His I am is meant to extend ever forward through us each day, and moment, shifting our lives through His fellowship as we go into vessels fit to dwell eternally in the presence of the LORD.
What if today is the day we stop looking up and instead look in and truly believe that Jesus has made His home in us and is waiting to extend His transforming fellowship right inside the temple of our hearts?

Do we SEE God every day in our lives? We must if we are truly following Him.
It's easy to submit to a man-made, self conjured up idea of who Jesus is based on our perceptions of who we want Him to be, but there is NO power in that.
But as we identity with His birth inside of us, a REAL birth, connected to the REAL God through the REAL death of Jesus, we SEE Him in us, Christ in us, the hope of GLORY!
And each day, no matter how hard or mundane becomes significant and weighty because we are surrendered to the God of our days, the One Who is working ALL out for good. He alone SEES and KNOWS, and as we recognize His sovereignty over us, we begin to SEE and experience the evidence of His Kingdom ruling in us. What a privilege it is to be a child of God!
