For when my kitchen is a mess…


…the living room has exploded…


…and the laundry is taking over…


…and for when I am weary of it all…

…I am thankful that when the God of all order looks at me He sees Christ’s perfect obedience—not all the chaos in my life, nor my disobedience.

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past. (Romans 3:23-25 NLT)

Not because of what I’ve done, but because of what Christ has done on my behalf,  He is well-pleased with me.

(…and at least my floors are clean!)

      Oh, goodness, your chaos is definitely normal! I think a big battle for me is not keeping my house clean, but realizing that everyone else’s is one big mess, too!

      Thanks, Jessica! It is so easy to forget, and then I get all worked up and down about my “performance.” Thankful I no longer need to perform, aren’t you?!
