Just Try to Muddle Up Grace {Day 8 :: MUDDLE}

muddle-5mfw

No matter how much I try, I can’t muddle up God’s love. That’s what’s so frustrating in a world of checks and balances, getting ahead and kicking people to the curb. God’s love registers as a big blank check.

It’s grace we can’t botch—no matter how many times we yell at our kids or call ourselves names. We can’t change it according to our mood or any terrible thing we’ve done.

It’s like my husband’s love or my kids’, but times a million.

I can’t mess up God’s love.

I can muddle up my days with fruitless pursuits and meaningless worry. I can burn the pan I’m heating up to fry eggs in, then fill the kitchen up with smoke. I can distract myself from the work I love with things I think will make me feel like a million bucks. But they leave me empty.

God’s love I can’t mess up.

I’m still trying to figure this one out.

  • What I needed to hear Christina. Hold on to His love. That’s the key to be a mommy to a two year old. Lol

    • I’m so glad that spoke to you, Kristina. It doesn’t change, even in nine years:)

  • Grace! Amazing, crazy stuff!!

  • Tara

    Gods love always wins!

  • I fed my kids tortillas I (unknowingly) warmed up in a rusty pan. Took a pinch later and they tasted like metal. So I can even botch warming tortillas. But NOT God’s love. Like ever. On a real mess of a day, I needed that.

    ALSO- I MUDDLED today’s prompt with MOVE so I totally wrote on the wrong prompt. It’s whatevs.

    • Girl, you crack me up! God doesn’t care about black tortillas. Hallelujah!

  • “It’s grace we can’t botch—no matter how many times we yell at our kids or call ourselves names. We can’t change it according to our mood or any terrible thing we’ve done.” AMEN! His grace keeps flowing and His love is everlasting! Blessings to you, Christina!
