I Wasn’t Looking For a Mud Puddle ~ February 28

I Wasn’t Looking For a Mud Puddle

It was just there!

When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”  Luke 5:20

A couple years ago, a friend of mine posted a picture of her four-year-old, Cooper, on Facebook. He was standing in a mud puddle, covered head to toe with mud, smiling as though he had not a care in the world. I’m quite sure Cooper didn’t get up that morning thinking he’d find a mud puddle to play in, but when he went outside and saw the puddle…. well…. boys will be boys.

When Cooper finished playing in the mud puddle his mom washed him off, put him in clean dry clothes, gave him a hug, and sent him on to discover other adventures.

We are all somewhat the same as little Cooper. We go into each day with good intentions, but as the day rolls along and various “opportunities” confront us, we sometimes give in to our human nature and dive into something we know we should avoid. Fortunately, when we do things we know we shouldn’t do, Jesus is right there to wash us clean.

Someday, Cooper and his mom will laugh about all the things he did when he was growing up.

I hope one day to be able to sit with Jesus and laugh about the foolish things I did while I was “growing up” too. I’d like to thank Him in person for all the times He washed me clean.
