|He hands it out to us…take it.|
Every mom does this. And if she says she doesn’t, she is lying. We beat ourselves up for not being a perfect parent, as if the world isn’t condemning enough without our self-depreciation. We refuse to accept ourselves as less-than-perfect, though we will adamantly tell anyone who is listening how very imperfect we are. Part of the problem is our fundamental failure to accept grace. This has been a hard one for me, as I legitimately am unable to define grace at this moment in time. I am just having trouble grasping this concept given all we have been through of late. But I know that somehow, God loves me and accepts me for who I am in all my imperfection. Queue up Jason Grey, and you have yourself a Mom of the Year tear-fest. But in truth, I know that life just is the way it is. Sometimes we hate it, sometimes we love it, but always has God created us to live it with our current capabilities. And when we feel like we just aren’t “cutting it”, well…that’s where the concept of grace comes in. God has got our back–let Him get it.
