The church is a beautiful mess because our lives are beautiful messes. My life is a beautiful mess. Beautiful because God has blessed me so much and a mess because I'm human. There's a book about the church titled This Beautiful Mess that got me thinking about this idea. I just started reading it. It feels as though no matter how much I get done in a day I feel like I could've done more or even prioritized better-I feel like a mess. The amazing thing is that God's grace turns that mess into beauty. I'm not the perfect husband, father or son. But I have a beautiful relationship with my wife, children and parents. I'm a mess, those relationships get messy, but it seems like beauty always prevails. Thank God.
