There’s a type of battle that goes on inside of me as a Mom every day. As I grow in the Gospel and understand more about the grace and love God showed me, the more I want that for our boys. In turn, the harder I work, the more stressed I feel, the less grace I show, and the more perfect I try to be.
It’s so hard to accept that it is finished for me and then accept that the same God who saved me can save our boys. I did nothing to earn His grace; why do I try so hard to make my boys get it. If anything this should push me to my knees, pleading for the Spirit to work both in their hearts and mine.
