God’s #grace is not shown in our supposed #perfection, but in our #weakness. God always has the #victory.

#Motherhood is humbling, and we need to be humbled. Remember that while God called us to this, He doesn’t expect us to do the whole job - He’s working, too. In fact, He’s the driving force enabling our work. He calls us to trust and obey Him - He’ll take care of the rest.

"I need His #grace . Every moment. Even when things are going 'right.' #Motherhood has a tendency to throw that need in my face... in a good way, even if I don't always take it as such, which is why I'm #thankful for it. It isn't my job to make my children more like Christ... that's God's job. My job is to point my children to Christ, ask their forgiveness when I mess up, and be a witness of His love, grace, and mercy."

"Much as I have admittedly been #stressing out lately in the trenches of daily life, it almost feels too good to be true to have had this "perfect" day. Yet here His gift stands. I appreciate these things all the more because of my recent #trials ... which makes me #thankful for not only for the "perfect" day, but for the trials, too."

As a parent, would you rather your child followed your every whim, or was free to make their own choices? True love wants them to make their own choices… and this is God’s desire for His children. I will never be able to fully reconcile the two inherent truths of our free will and His sovereignty, but God has shown me an inkling in the following perspective.

One question has been at the forefront of my mind lately: what gives saints (and by saints, I mean followers of Christ) #joy through physical #suffering ? I have seen saints with such #perseverance in Christ that joy pervades their being in a powerful and brazen #witness to those around them. Yet I have feel as though I have barely persevered in this fight against #chronicpain , and also keenly feel my own general lack of joy through it. So I keep returning to God with that question. What am I missing?

What about those times when I just don't want to #hurt anymore?

We all go through difficult times. In fact, the Bible makes no bones about the fact that we will suffer. But the amazing thing? God not only uses that #suffering to perfect us, but also gives us His #grace and power - sufficient for each moment - to live, and to live for Him.

As evidenced by my blog, I have found the practice of #thankfulness to fuel my #joy in the Lord. It has helped in so many areas in which I've faltered. Paul's call to action in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 isn't idle, and this journey of learning to apply joy, #prayer , and thankfulness to my life has transformed me; I want to share it with all of you.
