There are some days as the CHO (chief household officer) I feel like Satan is chomping at my heels. Fear, anger, disappointment, confusion, and hurt gang up on me and always when I'm too weary to fight back. Satan is quick to remind me of my failures and shortcomings. He brings my sins to mind and convinces me I will never get this wife and mother thing right.
But, GRACE covers me.
It's true, I won't ever be good enough, smart enough, or strong enough. I need Jesus. I can't figure out, get over, get it right, or even stand, without Him. When I'm down for the count I must remember - grace covers me. Grace, grace, MARVELOUS grace. Grace greater than all my sin.
Dear Sweet Moms, where do you go when you've had enough? What are you hanging on to? Are you tired? Overwhelmed? Angry? Do you have hard decisions to make? Too much to do? Something under your skin? Regrets? Fears?
If it all depended on us getting everything right we would be without hope. But our hope is not in ourselves. Our hope is in the One who conquered the grave! We became His sin and He became our righteousness! Grace covers us! Praise be to God!
We are not alone.
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety upon Him because He cares for you.
We do not have to fear.
"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgement, but has passed out of death into life."
God has a plan.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
We can do this!
And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary.
