Day 21: Love Gives Grace To Losers Like Me


I have been hard on myself today.

This morning, I woke up late. Loser.

I am behind on my Bible reading. Loser.

I haven’t read the Word to my boys in a few days. Loser.

Yesterday, I served hot dogs – twice. Lunch and dinner. Yep, loser.

I can be so self-righteous sometimes {ugh}. Big loser.

I really hope you don’t think I have it together over here. I can be such a loser. Capital “L” on the forehead. Loooooser.

But in the midst of all of my self-hate and trash talk…I hear Him whisper one word…

“Grace.”

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. Ephesians 1:7

I am redeemed. I am forgiven.

He gives me grace.

Overslept…Grace.

Behind on Bible reading…Grace.

Haven’t read to the boys…Grace.

Hot dogs…Grace.

Self-righteousness…Grace.

He loves me. Messy. A little lazy. And so far behind.

Not because of me…but because of His Grace.

Day 21: Love Gives Grace to Losers Like Me

Today, don’t be hard on yourself. He died for all of your imperfections. He died for all the things you beat yourself up about. God gives us grace in our worst “Loser” moments.

He loves you. Whisper this truth to yourself…”He loves me.”

Mmm.

Praise Him. I. Am. So. Thankful.

(Do you have days like this? Please say yes.)

  1. "He died for all of your imperfections." Wow, I have never considered that before…sure, I knew Christ died for my sins, but my imperfections? All of the important things I forget, and mistakes I make with my kids, and my general scatter-brain/overwhelmed thinking…He died for ALL.OF.IT! I have struggled a lot with feelings of inadequacy, feeling like I can't do anything right, so I'm so thankful to read this. It blesses me and brings me to tears.

I means so much to hear from you!
