A hot mess

Just a thought here about being a “hot mess”. When we say that phrase we think that things are really going bad. How about this thought though, a hot mess can be a good thing.
Think about it, Jesus called the Laodicean church “lukewarm” (Revelation 3:16). Something that is lukewarm is generally sticky and nasty. And sticky and nasty is something we generally flick away, used gum and such.
Now a hot mess, being hot it can mean that it is pliable. You can work with it, take hot wax for example. It needs to be hot in order to make a candle and conversely allow light to flow from it.
If your life is a “hot mess” it may be that God is working to shape you into something.
