Hot Mess Express

I remember singing this song in Sunday school and it’s currently stuck in my head:⠀

Oh, happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh, happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same
                                        Forever I am changed⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This morning I woke up late for work, rolled up to the gas station with only 10 miles until I was on E, got my favorite lipstick on my new white top, and I had to borrow deodorant from my friend at work [#TheRealMVP] because I forgot to put it on this morning. I am a walking definition of a hot mess today…and just in general haha. I can’t help but picture Jesus looking down at me from Heaven and giggling.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’m reminded that I don’t have to have it all together. In fact, I have no idea what that even looks like if I’m being totally honest. And I don’t want to have it all together. Because if I did, I wouldn’t need Jesus. And I wouldn’t need His mercy, grace, forgiveness, peace, patience + all that good stuff Jesus gives us. But I need Jesus. All day, errrday. And I’m thankful for His unfailing love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Jesus laid this verse on my heart:

If you think you’re too much of a “hot mess”, I just want to tell you that there is NO such thing. Jesus died for YOU. He didn’t die for the people who have it all together or the people who are righteous- He died for the people who are a hot mess. Embrace your mess and allow Jesus to transform it into a MESSAGE to reach His lost people.

So here’s to being a hot mess on the reg and constantly being cleansed by our Redeemer. Here’s to not knowing what tomorrow holds, but knowing WHO holds tomorrow. Here’s to the days that don’t go as planned. Here’s to just being a mess and being okay with it – because we KNOW who makes us new.

And thank You, sweet Jesus for loving us. Oh how You love us.
