This past saturday I heard a guest speaker at church that moved my heart and actually helped me understand something that I have struggled with for a long time: The actual thought of ME being a worthy daughter of God.
I have always felt condemned and guilty that I could never be the better person that Jesus wants me to be. I always felt that because of all that I had done, or said or thought; God would be mad at me. I mostly felt guilty that I could never be the best I could be, not perfect, not the happiest and more positive person, not the most patient or the most eloquent… guilty for being upset with my daughters for not listening to me, for being stressed because I could barely have time to clean, cook, do homework, clean our home, take care of my shop (design new cards, take pictures, list more products, promote them online, process orders, etc)… At the end of each day I love my bed!
While everything that surround us may stress, upset and get us tired, God understands every single part of us and our imperfect nature and knows that even if we -with every good will in our being- try to be perfect for God; He knows that is impossible.
But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
