real life is insides

the messy:
my heart


do you want to know what’s messier than my kitchen floors?
my insides.


i desire a cleaned up,
everything in order kind of house.
do you, too?


that’s just not the season of life that i am in right now.
sometimes my house gets both cleaned up and organized
but that’s usually only when the children are all sleeping.
and what’s the point of that?



but i also want a cleaned up and organized life.
and i desire to have that in my heart also.


the beautiful:


only He can make us new.
only He can transform us.
that power is only held by Jesus.


my house is a real mess.
my life is a real mess.
my heart is a real mess.
but you know what?
it can never be too messy for Jesus.
because nothing is too messy for Him.


real life is messy
is a weekly project to reveal
that i don’t have it all together.
because real life is messy.


i will post a
blog post every week
and encourage you to
reveal your messy real life to others
by using this hashtag on instagram:


and a special thanks to all the ladies
who joined in on instagram.

keep ’em coming.
let’s change hearts and minds in blogland.

and my dear friend, Katherine Wolf
is having surgery next Monday
to hopefully remove an aneurysm

I will give you a new heart
and put a new spirit in you;
I will remove from you your
heart of stone
and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26


3001. feeling refreshed and inspired
3002. being able to wear a scarf in this “cold” weather
3003. a few extra minutes
3004. it’s turquoise and it spins
3005. “bass!” yelled by L at music class
