The Messy Bits

Beauty sometimes comes after a mess. Like, art requires hands getting dirty. A tasty meal requires dirtying dishes that will have to be dealt with. Tight friendship requires raw vulnerability. Grace comes once we start to glimpse how desperate we are for it.
How's today? How's this week? How's this season? You still in the messy bits? That's okay! Glory comes. And/or!! Maybe the messy bits are the glory!
You can wish and dream about tomorrow when the art gets to be on the wall because it's finally dry or you can be grateful to God that THESE ARE THE days that He has made so you get to choose to rejoice and be glad in them.
