A New Day
When I encounter a not-so-great-day, I am so thankful for new days and fresh starts. Aren't you!?!
~There are days when I have had a "bad mom moment" with my children.
~There are days when I am a little snappy or reactive with my husband.
~There are days when I don't stick to my personal goals and I am lead by my feelings.
We all have not-so-great days. I have to remind myself to not get stuck in shame and guilt. God wants us to process our struggles with Hm, to accept His grace and to begin again.
God, thank You for Your tender mercies each day. Thank You that Your love for us does not shift or change based on our performance. Thank You that You do not grow weary of us. Help us to begin again with gentleness, kindness, self-ctonrol and love. Amen.
