God can clean up any mess

But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must[necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him — Hebrews 11:6

I was seriously abused throughout my childhood. My life was horrible! I don’t remember being really happy until I was in my twenties. My mind was a mess, my emotions were a mess..everything was a mess!

But thank God, I didn’t stay that way! God has dealt with me, changed me and brought me through it all. Now I have a great relationship with God, real peace and joy, good relationships with family and friends, and I’m doing what God has called me to do.

Hebrews 11:6 tells us that God rewards those who diligently seek Him I’ve discovered that anything I sacrificed to get closer to God and obey Him, I received back from Him many times over. And what He gave me was always much better.

You may be thinking, But Joyce, you don’t know what I’m dealing with. It’s so hard!

I understand–I’ve been through some really hard stuff too. But God will reward those who seek Him. Be determined to seek Him in the midst of your hardship. He is more than able to clean up your messes!
