What a Mess!

I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker  for Five Minute Friday. I'm writing for five minutes flat on the writing prompt: MESS.


I love to watch the children in our preschool eat cupcakes. They make such a mess!  And yet they have such fun in the process.

There are moments in my life when I feel like it's such a mess.

Merriam-Webster has a definition of mess as 'a situation that is very complicated or difficult to deal with'.

Well, that's my life right now!

If you could see what's going on in my brain you'd be amazed. If you could know all the circumstances I'm dealing with, you'd be shaking your head. I feel like I'm juggling so many different tasks. When I commit to do something, I always try to do my best. But then I feel overloaded and become stressed. And then I'm a mess. How thankful I am that I know what to do when I feel a mess.

I stop.  I try to get to a quiet place. And I pray.

This happened to me only yesterday when I was feeling a mess. I was able to get away by myself for half an hour to be alone.  I silenced the voices of expectation and tuned in to my Savior.  I prayed for His guidance. I felt His love as He opened my eyes beyond my mess.

So in the mess of my life, I am humbled and thankful. Jesus always seem to make something beautiful out of my mess.


Five Minute Friday

Blessings and love,

Oh, Debbie, I'm sorry you have been feeling "a mess" and pray that you will soon feel restored and renewed. I've been there many times myself and thankfully, like you, I know what is necessary to pull me out of that mess. We serve such a great God that can teach us such great lessons through these messes.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Hi Debbie! You have learned a very valuable spiritual lesson...I want to be more like you, that's for sure. To be able to stop for a while and reset is such a blessing. And that you understand when to do it is priceless!
Thank you for your wonderful attitude :)
