A little boy and girl asked their dad if they could get candy on the way home. Their dad replied, "yes, but don't eat it until after dinner ok? We are having fish tonight and i don't want you to spoil your dinner."
"Ok daddy," the son replied. "But can I hold it on the way home?"
Dad: "Yes, but remember, don't open it ok?"
On the way home dad heard the wrapper crinkling.
He pulled into the drive way and turned around to look at his kids in the back seat.
The son's candy was gone. Dad asks the son, "what happened to your candy son?"
Without missing a beat, the son says, "sissy ate it!"
The dad took his son inside the house and sat him on the bathroom counter where he could see himself and...the chocolate smothered all around his face.
He asked his son again, "son, let me ask you again, did you eat your candy bar?"
Realizing the evidence was not in his favor, he replies, "yes daddy."
Dad: "Why did you do that son?"
Son: I thought it was fish!" lol
Isn't it amazing how we can in the same way think we can hide our stuff from our Heavenly Father?
He already knows it's there but just wants us to confess so we can get to work on dealing with the damage our sin and poor choices have caused.
"The Lord sets prisoners free, the Lord gives sight to the blind, The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous." Ps 145-8
If you are ready to deal with mess in your life, God is ready to turn it into His glorious message. All we have to do is surrender to Him.
Hope to see you tonight at 6pm at Fellowship
