When you have a mess to address, first options aren't usually the best options. First options often make messes- messier. In this message, we'll explore an approach that can take the -er out of your messier situations.
A common misperception is that the Christian life is all about avoiding messes and staying out of trouble. But following Jesus isn't about avoiding something; it's about becoming something.
"I know a mess when I see one because I am a mess." When we acknowledge our messes, we're a baby step away from acknowledging God. Your mess has the potential to bring God near you.
Whether we're religious or not, we've all been in, are in, or are only one decision away from a mess. But there's a powerful connection between your messes and your relationship with God.
