An Imperfect Parent

I don't know about you, but I am far from perfect - especially when it comes to being a parent. That's why I like the words on the above photo. No matter how much I fail as a mother, God will still provide for my children. Their salvation isn't up to me. Yes, I have been called to be their mother and to teach them in the way they should go, but when I fail, God's grace covers me, and them.

I don't know if you're anything like me, but that's definitely a reminder that I need to hear more often.

I'm linking up with Word-Filled Wednesday over at Internet Cafe Devotions.

  1. That's what I tell myself on off days when I feel like the world worst mom! :( I'm so glad their salvation doesn't rely on me! In fact, I'm so glad my salvation doesn't rely on me....

    1. Amen! It's good to remember on good and bad days. When I feel like a failure, and when I think I'm doing great, because it doesn't matter how "good" I am, Salvation comes from Christ alone.
