Y'all life is messy.
And it is beautiful
This is not news I know.
But somehow I have to keep wrestling with it.
I have to keep coming back to the truth of it.
Because I tend to only see the forest OR the trees.
I have a hard time remembering that they are parts of the same.
They are part of each other.
So the truth is this.
It is picturesque and a complete disaster.
It is wide and varied.
It is mundane and daily.
It is scattered and it is rooted.
It is both and all of the above.
But it is not stagnant.
It is a river that runs.
Rushing, meandering, straight ahead and around the bend.
Water against stone, refining my heart and soul if I let it.
If I am open the mercy and grace that is offered.
If I can participate in my own soul- transformation by receiving this constant erosion of my false self through grace extravagant, through raw tender honesty.
If I can let go of who I am in in exchange for who I am becoming.
Letting down walls.
Stepping out into the light.
Leaving the safety of my plans and preferences.
For the adventure of following Christ.
Walking as he walked.
Loving as he loved.
Serving as he served.
Giving away buckets and buckets of grace and mercy
Only then can I see the forest and the trees.
Only then do I remember that it is all beautimess.
