Sometimes in motherhood, I just feel weary.
I want to delight in my kids. I want to enjoy every ounce of every minute. I want to be super organized, stress-free, and smiling but I just don’t feel it. Period.
Merriam-Webster defines mercy as ” kindness or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation”. Sometimes the grind of life can feel almost desperate. I begin each day with my plans and I end each day often thinking that I got very little of my plan accomplished. It can be discouraging for a plan-loving girl like me. But God’s mercy is the thing that wakes me up again each day. It’s the reset button that prepares me to start again. It’s the water I bathe in all day long as I mother our 3 small kids. Mercy is the sunrise, a fresh start, a new day, a 2nd chance, forgiveness, and hope. It’s undeserved kindness given to me from a God who doesn’t have to be kind yet chooses to.
Thank you Lord for your mercy. It is balm to my life-chapped soul. May all your people know the comfort and blessing of your mercy. Amen
