For I the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, “fear not, I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 NKJV
This verse to me, reminded me of the GRACE of our loving Father.
It has been a challenging month, and there are times where I felt I could not make it through the day, or when I was ready to retire for the day I told myself I will do better tomorrow. But, when tomorrow comes, instead of having a happy boy, I get a rowdy boy and here I am trying to figure out what he wants.
As a mom, I don’t always know what I am doing. In fact, I find myself wondering what on earth am I going to do! I read books about momming, hoping to find encouragement and insights, learn from other moms, and etc. I try to give my best, but still fall short.
Greek = Charis (char’-ece)
The unmerited favor of God; this term refers to God’s inexplicable giving of good things (especially salvation) to underserving people who could never earn it.
This is the word that the Lord put in my heart for the last couple of weeks. I pondered on the word GRACE and as I meditate on this word, I saw a picture of an eagle riding on the wind, effortless flying above the sky. That is the kind of mom that the good good Father intended for me to be. Riding on the rhythms of His grace. Not striving by my own strengths, but recognizing God, learning from His word and inviting Him each day to help me and teach me as I become the mom He intended me to be.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV
