Yet as grateful I was to hear these words from my amazing daughter, I also felt very unworthy. Unworthy because I could hardly believe this was me she was talking about. There are many days I finish my day and feel like I have failed. Failed my husband, failed my kids, and most disappointing, failed God. Because there are days when I am not submissive, I am not patient with my children, I am short-tempered....failed. It is on these days that I am so grateful for a husband who loves me unconditionally, kids who forgive readily, and especially a God Who's mercies are new every morning. Where would I be without God's mercy? I would be hopelessly lost, a failure.
It's only by God's grace that I am where I am today....in my walk with Him, in my covenant with my husband & as a Mom to my wonderful children. Today when I look at where God has brought us, I am so overwhelmed by His grace and mercy. It is only in Him and through Him that I have the strength to face each new day. And what a privilege and honor it is to serve Him, in my roles as wife and mother. I am not perfect.....I am a work in progress!
It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.
