under grace

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

A week of illness has thrown our entire family for a loop. Everyone is barely functioning. We are still reluctant to eat normally, fighting loss of sleep and exhaustion, and those of our children who do not thrive when we are under stress are, well, not thriving.

I’m not succeeding at parenting my children in the way that we want. I’m yelling too much, expecting too much, and not focusing on what matters.

Today, in bible study, part of the session asked how often we lived under grace on a scale of 1 to 10. I didn’t even have to think about it. I know there are still areas where I will always fight a rule-based mentality, fight against legalism, but at this particular point in my life, I am living all under grace. If not, I couldn’t make it at all.

It’s all grace. And I’m so thankful.
