In Need of a Wash

This is how I often start my morning.

Cute, huh?

I have to admit, it is.

And also a little annoying when I'm giving her a 2nd bath in 10 hours but it is ok. She's cute, she's sweet and she loves to make a mess.

You know, she actually didn't try to make this sticky mess though....I watched her. She made every effort to get every crumb of that poptart in her mouth.

It just didn't happen.

So I'm reminded of myself....of how sometimes I work and work, feeling like surely I'm getting somewhere but all I end up doing is making a sticky mess.

I get caught up in that sometimes, don't you? Working at being good?

Maybe I'm the only one.

But anyway, today the Lord reminded me of one particular scripture, Titus 3:4-7,

"But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life." 

Our best efforts don't make us clean, but Jesus does......praying we all are washed in that water today....
