I don’t know about you, but I don’t need anyone to point out my flaws … because I’m a tough enough critic all by myself. It’s easy for me to see another mom and want to tell her, “It’s okay, you don’t have to be perfect. Don’t stress yourself out trying to be.” Yet I have a hard time speaking those words to myself. I always feel as if I can do better. Always.
For so many years I woke up every morning feeling insufficient, and I went to bed at night feeling as if I could do better. But that’s a horrible way to live. Then, the more time I spent reading God’s Word and sitting still in His presence the more I learned to give myself grace. After all, Jesus didn’t expect me to be perfect. And if I was perfect I wouldn’t need Him!
