It’s hard being a mom. In loving a child, we open ourselves to heartache. But whether in small trials or monumental ones, God has more than enough comfort to give.
All of creation bears testimony to God’s grace. There is not just sin and brokenness to lament, there is beauty and goodness to commend. But we must train our eyes to see it.
“Our union with Christ is as certain as Christ’s irrevocable love, which does not wax or wane. It is as sure as Christ’s grip in our lives and his promise that nothing can snatch us from his hand.”
What should we do when we observe an area of weakness in our friend, or small group, or church that should be addressed for the glory of God?
When we’re blindsided by our sins—falling to those temptations we thought we didn’t struggle with or were too mature for, there are three truths that can help us not lose heart.
God never has—and never will—run away. He never leaves or forsakes His children.
Every failure of my mothering has been covered by God’s grace. And this isn’t just my hope for tomorrow, but my children’s hope as well.
When our sin casts us before the throne of grace, God will never cast us away. Then, we can go back to our friends and family to seek forgiveness for the seventy-seventh time, strengthened with the hope that God will faithfully transform us into his likeness, one degree of glory at a time.
Peace is an idol if we neglect God’s Word in order to maintain it.
