I recently vented my feelings of inadequacy and frustration about ALL the things I’ve got on my plate. Feeling overwhelmed and tired. She reminded me of who I AM and in gentleness reminded me to “get a grip”.
Yesterday’s trip to the pumpkin patch was slathered in disappointment. Today, I woke up late for church and a side gig I’m getting ready for. My sweet husband helped me watch church online so I could get ready. The topic: GRACE.
After a week I have had, I didn’t need the worship songs to praise Him. I’ve been in my grace all week and didn’t even realize it. The Holy Spirit flooded my heart and wrapped around a blanket of grace as I wept while putting mascara on. God gives me grace for my grind. For our life. For my children. I’ve heard so many times “I don’t know how you do it!” Today it clicked! Grace. That’s how.
“But because God was so gracious, so very generous, here I am. And I’m not about to let his grace go to waste. Haven’t I worked hard trying to do more than any of the others? Even then, my work didn’t amount to all that much. It was God giving me the work to do, God giving me the energy to do it. So whether you heard it from me or from those others, it’s all the same: We spoke God’s truth and you entrusted your lives.”
1 Corinthians 15:10-11 MSG
I read this scripture over and over. In different translations. But, by His GRACE, I am called to be the Mother of these children, the wife to my Husband, in this new State of Colorado, at this job, in this home.
I’ve endured trials, heartache, shame, etc. I’ve gotten through periods of my life I didn’t know how I survived. Everything today clicked, but by His Grace. So this week I will go forward thanking and praising God for His grace.
With Him, I can do ALL things. It even says so in the Bible!
Happy Sunday Friends!
