Summary: AND WHEN I SAY A MESSY SITUATION I`M TALKING ABOUT A TIME WHEN WE HAVE ALLOWED SIN TO MANIFEST ITSELF IN OUR LIVES AND HINDER OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND YOUR SIN CAN BE ONE THING AND MINES COULD BE ANOTHER
Psalm 51:1-6 (Living) O loving and kind God, have mercy. Have pity upon me and take
away the awful stain of my transgressions.
 Oh, wash me, cleanse me from this guilt. Let me be pure again.
 For I admit my shameful deed--it haunts me day and night.
 It is against you and you alone I sinned and did this terrible thing. You saw it all, and
your sentence against me is just.
 But I was born a sinner, yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.
 You deserve honesty from the heart; yes, utter sincerity and truthfulness. Oh, give me
Psalm 51:7-12 (Living) Sprinkle me with the cleansing blood and I shall be clean
again. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.
 And after you have punished me, give me back my joy again.
 Don't keep looking at my sins--erase them from your sight.
 Create in me a new, clean heart, O God, filled with clean thoughts and right desires.
 Don't toss me aside, banished forever from your presence. Don't take your Holy
Spirit from me.
 Restore to me again the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.

I`M NOT TELLING YOU THAT YOU HAVE TO SWEET TALK YOURSELF OUT OF A MESSY
BUT WHAT DAVID TEACHES US IN THE TEXT IS
THAT WHEN WE FIND OURSELVES IN A MESSY SITUATION
THAT WE HAVE TO (REPENT )-(ACKNOWLEDGE) AND (PRAY)
OUR WAY THROUGH A MESSY SITUATION
AND I NEED TO PAUSE AND TELL YOU THAT
YOUR MESSY SITUATION MIGHT NOT BE AS BAD AS KOBE BRYANTS
IT MIGHT NOT BE AS BAD AS R KELLY`S
BUT WEATHER IT`S BIG OR SMALL SIN IS SIN AND A MESS UP IS A MESS UP
AND SIN SEPARATE US FROM GOD
AND WHAT PUZZLES ME ABOUT OUR MESSY SITUATIONS IS A LOT OF TIMES
WE TRY TO COVER UP OUR MESS UP
AND WHEN WE TRY TO COVER THEM UP THE SITUATION SEEMS TO GET MESSY
