Grace

We arrived home this Tuesday from a week long trip to LA.  I hesitate to call it vacation because it really appeared to be all the workings of being home.  For instance, I consistently had to stop siblings from dismembering each others body, I constantly had to remind the kids that we don’t have a butler, and the infamous “Go outside and play”.  It is tiring when your trying to raise children who are just a little spoiled, a wee bit lazy, and barely act like they enjoy going to Church.  You see my kids are on the borderline of “Rotten to the core” “Lazy as Heck” and “Sleepers in the pews”, so if I don’t handle my business they will be themselves and enjoy their freedom.  So after 12 long days of them blowing me off, I was exhausted.  I hit a burnt out level and then decided that I had had enough, life was going to be under my dictatorship……down with their democracy.  This morning I had a great prayer where God made it plain “Call down my Grace”.  What did he mean by that?????After a few short sleepy sighs, I realized that his Grace is unmerited favor.  I don’t have to feel burnt out  when I have been given beautiful spoiled children who can earn their keep.  And so the delegation began.  I even too it to the next level spiritually, I don’t have to wait to pray for things like strength because his Grace will suffice.  All I have to do is ask.  I don’t have to wait for quiet times to receive what he promises to give.  When I ask it shall be given.  So today I asked for a super dose of Grace, at times I don’t deserve it but, I know that he is a God of love so he gives it to me and my family freely.  His Grace is so awesome that I rejoice even when I feel over worked or tired.  His Grace also reminds me that I am very fortunate to be able to be a Mother.  And his Grace is here for me whenever I need it, even if I only have enough strength to muster up the words “Help”.  Grace is amazing, if it weren’t, one of these children may have gotten slapped into the 4th of July.  But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
