Messed Up

Years ago at the end of a Women’s Retreat, the ladies were giving testimonies and a woman named Charlee approached the mic. She said, “I was really nervous to come to this Retreat because I was worried that there is too much wrong with me, but after hearing everyone share, I realize there is something wrong with everyone!!!! I’m not that messed up! I totally fit in here!” It was definitely a “laugh-cry” moment and she spoke a truth that should set us all free – there is something wrong with everyone. That is why we need God.

We are not alright. We are all screwed up. Even the ones who seem to have it all together. Everyone needs God’s grace. It is because we all have things wrong with us that makes God’s amazing grace through Jesus and His gentle faithful love so precious.

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—” Ephesians 2:4-5 (ESV)

Is there something wrong with you? Welcome to the club. I’m not perfect and thank the Lord, I don’t have to be. But I am loved, forgiven, have help from heaven and take it one day at a time. And no one is so messed up that God can’t reach them and turn their mess into a grace-filled message.
