Today is Day One

Day one.

Clean Slate.

No mistakes. Yet.

Last night I went to bed discouraged. Defeated. The day didn’t go the way I wanted it to. None of my checkboxes got checked.

I yelled at the kids.

The house is still a mess.

We didn’t get any school done at all.

And I went to bed discouraged and defeated.

But no matter how bad yesterday was, we don’t have to wake up the same way. Lamentations 3:22-23 says it this way:

22 It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

So even if the kids drove you crazy yesterday, and you feel like a failure as a mom, God’s mercy is new every day.

Today is DAY ONE. A clean slate. Full of mercy and grace.

Dear Momma, give yourself a break and realize that God is rooting for you. He called you to this job. He will equip you to finish well. And his mercies are new every morning! We don’t have to be consumed by regrets or failures.

But we should always examine our hearts when we fail, and see if there is something we could have done differently to avoid the failure. In other words, learn from our mistakes. […]
