I'm working on letting life be messy, and I'm getting lots of practice! Hopefully I'm making slow, forward progress in trusting God to work out his plan in his timing.
As Matt and I were reading the Jesus Storybook Bible with the girls last night, I was struck by the story of Jacob and Leah and Rachel. Jesus was born from the line of Leah, the ugly sister whose father tricked Jacob into marrying her. I have been thinking about this all day- how God chooses the ugly things of this world, our sin, our pain, and uses them for his glory.
His ways are higher than ours. He uses chaos to accompish his purposes.
