Sometimes I feel like I’m making it through by the skin of my teeth. Just barely making deadlines and scrambling to get dinner on the table 15 minutes late. Just barely holding chaos at bay because I’m a wreck on wheels.
But God. He loves me anyway. He reaches down and speaks to me in the loveliest of ways right in the middle of my chaos.
I’m the pastor’s wife who forgot it was her turn to lead the service last Sunday. Until five minutes before starting time, when someone asked was I ready. (Gulp. This really happened, people.)
I’m the shopper who left her credit card at an Ikea cash register and realized it an hour later while trying to pay for groceries next door. Yes, I was THAT customer who systematically emptied the entire contents of her purse right there in the grocery store, looking for said credit card. I was also the only one trying to get a large shopping cart of groceries in that revolving entrance door at Ikea.
Sometimes stopping for just a minute to remember we’re loved can turn our day around…
