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.
