God Loves Me…Messy and All

Welcome! I’m over at 5 Minutes for Faith today talking about our messy lives. Here's a little of what you'll find...

My daughter does not like to clean her room. She never has. In fact, unlike me, she seems to like clothes on the floor and stuff everywhere.

Years ago when she was younger, I once again brought up the fact that her room was out of hand, and she needed to spend time cleaning it up. She wasn’t happy. The more we talked (I explained, she debated) the more upset she got, until finally she burst into tears, and cried, “God made me this way, and you should love me messy!”

Will you join me at 5 Minutes for Faith to read the rest? When you do, please leave a comment. I’d love to know you stopped by!

In Christ,

    I love this, "God made me this way..." I enjoyed reading your devotional. I'm so thankful that God loves us...messy and all!

    Thank you for linking up!


    1. Thanks Joan, always glad to have you visit!

  2. Great insight for a little one! She sounds like my daughter at that age.

  3. lol....I love your daughter's response. My youngest daughter's room is usually a disaster so I can relate....Happy Mother's Day....
