You Lucky Dog

Yep!  That's my pup.  I get to look at this mug everyday, all day.   I'd call that pretty lucky.

Yep! That’s my pup. I get to look at this mug everyday, all day.
I’d call that pretty lucky.

We don’t always have much to offer.  Our lives are complicated and full of issues that we sometimes wish would just disappear.  But the truth is…difficulties are ever present with no signs of diminishing.   As hard as we may try to forget, our messes seem to follow.

The silver lining is that we don’t have to work it out perfectly. God wants to be close to us.  He alone is the author and creator of our story. He is the one that sees our messes and doesn’t run the other way. He chooses to enter our mess to bless and restore for the opportunity to start a brand new day.  Though broken He still wants us…our bodies, our praise and our prayers.

”My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.”

Psalm 51:17  

 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.” 

Ephesians 3: 20-21

Today I want to encourage you to stop focusing on what you’ve done in the past and start trusting God for your future.  He makes your issues His own. God is there when all else fails.  He is always there, ready, waiting for you to come to Him. 

You Lucky Dog!

  1. So glad we’re neighbors at #Coffeeforyourheart as your post spoke to me. This: “He chooses to enter our mess to bless and restore for the opportunity to start a brand new day. Though broken He still wants us…our bodies, our praise and our prayers.” Thank you!…P.S. cute puppy 🙂

  2. My sweet lab dog Patty taught me so much about life-how to seize the moment,how to greet someone coming home, how to take comfort in a warm touch, how to enjoy a walk by investigating all the new things since the last trip, and how to play with all that was in him. Thanks so much for sharing !!!!
