It hasn’t been the easiest week.
I was sick with some type of respiratory infection on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday, my husband had a tire blowout. I was up with our two year old much of the night. Thursday, I had a fussy kid, lost my phone, lost my keys, and forgot about an obligation to clean up after our homeschool co op. On Friday, we spent the morning running errands and the afternoon at the doctor. The fussy kid had an ear infection in both ears.
When I have one of THOSE weeks, I feel like such a failure. The unorganized, discombobulated, and tired self feels the weight…. Bad mother. Horrible house cleaner. Irresponsible person.
It flows through my mind so easily. Most of the time, I am completely oblivious to that condemnation of myself. A condemnation that I do not have to carry.
“…there is now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
But even if those over generalizations of myself were true, it doesn’t matter.
That’s the beauty of God’s perfect grace.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
