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.

I loved reading this post for the second time! This is so like me only I would have gotten stuck in the revolving door LOL. Thanks for sharing that in our Humanity God still loves us no matter what.

I loved reading this post over on Brenda’s blog. You had me stressed with your list, especially the one about needing to give the message. I am not sure I could pull that one off.
Thank you for reminding us to give it to God and let him turn it around.
Thanks for reading. 🙂

I also enjoyed reading your post at Brenda blog last week. Sometimes I too feel scatterbrained so to speak in the midst of life with three kids and all that goes with that. I’m always in need of the fresh reminder that God loves me, regardless of what I find myself in throughout the day.
