While perusing my 2012 journal to see exactly what resolutions I kept and which ones got rewritten again this year, I came across this entry from last January. This journey of finding freedom and joy in the Gospel had just begun…
You have called us by grace to show grace. I am not under the law. I don’t have to be perfect. You were perfect for me. You keep order, so I can love life with my family. Yes, I’m commanded to “bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord,” but You are the one who sees the big picture of their lives. I trust your grace is enough.
Trusting and loving You,
The journey continues a year later, and I’m guessing a lifetime to come!
