Each week I dance in my Zumba class to Meghan Trainor singing “Goosebumps” and you wanna know which line I sing out really loud? “I’m a fool, I’m a mess...” See for too many years I tried to hide the mess of me...pretended to have the [kinda] perfect house, the behaved kids with not a hair out of place, church on Sundays & midweek Bible Studies, and especially the uglier, angry side of my personality that I shared only with those people I loved the most. Now I intentionally have to remind myself that, this side of heaven, I will never be perfect, I remember to embrace the fool I am and that reminds me of what a big God I have, He alone is perfect and I will never be Him. It helps me to walk in grace...for me and everyone else!
I love the way Lisa Bevere puts it “You see, once you own a mistake, it no longer owns you.” Preach THAT to your heart!!!
