Relief (Five Minute Friday)featured


This week’s FMF prompt is the word RELIEF.  You can join all the girls at Kate Motaung’s place!  And here we go in 3…2…1…


What a relief it is to know that I am covered by His grace.  What a relief to know that I don’t have to have it all figured out.  What a relief to know that God sees the end from the beginning, and He knows how He will get me there!  #creativebasicsI never know the how…I just know the right now.  And the right now is trust.  And rest.  Resting in His grace will always get me further than striving for perfection.

What a relief to know that I don’t have to be the perfect mom!  That Christ was perfect for me, and I get to wear His perfection proudly.  His grace covers my imperfections to make me perfect in His sight, and as I embrace it, it also empowers me to live in His perfection!  It’s a win-win situation!

Christ won the victory for me–and I get to walk in it.  What a relief to know that it doesn’t depend on my own efforts (because that wouldn’t turn out so well!).  What a relief to have found this love that carries me.  That takes the heavy burden off of my back so I can stand tall, with my face toward the shining sun!

What a relief it is to be loved by Him.
