This broken world is marred by sin.
This blemished heart is flawed. Despite giving my very best, I will, inevitably, fail you. The very best of me is crippled by heartbreaking, inexcusable sin.
Yet God works out my sanctification.
Every day, I can choose how to parent. Will I put off pride and put on humility? Will I put off impulse and put on patience? Will I put off irritation and put on love? Will I put off temper and put on self-control?
What if I planted seeds of grace, mercy and forgiveness? What if I watered what really needed to grow?
Maybe then, this imperfect mother won’t block your view of the Father. Maybe letting you see the pieces that make up this fractured heart will help you understand that perfection is only found in one person — God. And together we can look past my failures to one who never fails.
God is your perfect Father. Fix your eyes on Him.
Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.
PSALM 27:10 NLT
