In honor of this fun holiday, I wanted to write a little about both this month.
Please don't be disappointed if I let you down, but I am going to try to post daily about things I'm thankful for.
Today, I'm thankful for God's grace.
I am such a no good, sinner, but He loves me for who HE created me to be, not who this world says I am.
This world tries to tell us we are no good, rotten, scoundrels, but God sees us through a different pair of glasses.
He sees us as pure, blameless, and holy.
Let's be real, yall.
I've often thought of my self as worthless and a failure.
I don't always have my act together.
Sometimes my house is a mess and school work barely gets done.
I am horrible at sticking to routines.
I don't always have the patience my kids deserve.
I don't always joyfully submit to my husband even though I know I should.
I don't read His word enough.
I don't pray enough.
I don't prioritize things the way I often think I should.
Have you ever felt that way?
I know I can't be alone here!
But something amazing happens when God looks at us. If we have asked Jesus to be Lord of our lives, and have pleaded His blood for our sin, God sees us as holy. righteous. pure.
Thank you Lord for your grace.
If you haven't experienced that grace in your own life, PLEASE. Contact me. I'd love to share more about it with you.
