Today was a rough day for me as a mom. Just another day where my nerves were crushed by the end of the day, another day where I felt guilty for all the things I didn’t do and felt guilty for all the irritation in my heart, another day when I wondered just how messed up my kids would be as adults because of me.
I don’t have to feel defeated. I can look to Jesus and know that I am saved no matter how poorly I “performed” today as a mom, because my salvation has nothing to do with my performance. It has everything to do with Jesus’ perfect righteousness and his sacrifice for me.
I just want my kids to know… I love you, I want you, and I’m sorry for being a grump. You are special and brilliant and amazing. Goodnight.
