COME TO JESUS "MESSY"


My autistic son Chase has this ritual where he has to look at every clock in the house at :50 on the hour. It starts at 6:50, 7:50 till 8:50 at night. I once got tired at night when Julie was at a bible study and tried to get Chase to bed early. I changed the upstairs clock ahead to reflect 8:50 BUT I forgot to set all the other clocks in the house. When I saw the horror on Chase's face when the clocks didn’t match it really convicted me that I tried to trick him.


I see that Chase has a ritual but that is autism. I still love Chase. But I love it when he is also impulsive and asks me whatever is on his mind. Jesus knows if you are coming to Him with a ritual of prayer but He desires for you to come to him "messy."
