About Me and This Blog

Who am I?

If you have read my blog, you may have a little sense of what I  believe in, but I wanted to tell you who I am as well.

I am, just as the title of my blog, His messy child.

What that means is that I am human.  I am not perfect, I have made many mistakes in my life and I still make mistakes.  I am learning everyday to do better and be better.  I love the saying: I am not where I need to be but at least I am not where I once was.  This fits me.

I did not believe in God until I heard him speak to me.  Even then, I didn't listen.  But He waited and when I was at the bottom of a very dark hole, he picked me up, carried me out, and started talking to me.  This time I started to listen.  My life started getting better.

I don't know if everyone can hear God like me.  Maybe you can.  I just know that I can.  I know that I  can ask him a question and he will show me the answer.  Most of the time it was not the answer I expected but It was what he needed me to know or do.  His answers take me by surprise most of the time and always amaze me. They even give me a laugh sometimes.  I think he does that on purpose.

I am not what some would say a "good Christian"  I liked to go to church, but I don't make it often enough.  I don't believe in religion, I have relationship with God.  I have started to read the bible because he told me that to know him, I have to know his Word.  I thought our communication was good enough but he disagreed.

I am not perfect and he knows that.

Now, a little about this blog,  When I met God, I knew that I had a purpose.  I don't know what that purpose is, only he does.  I gave my life over to God to use as he needs.  I try to stay still and listen.  This blog is not mine.  It is His.  I write what He leads me to write.  Hopefully I get the message out that he wants.

Just know that he loves you, mess and all,  He wants to know you.  He made you and He sent his own Son to die, so that you can have a relationship with him.
