From The Inside Out

Yesterday was one of those days...

I didn't feel well. Wesley didn't feel good too. We started the day late, having a very late breakfast. A full pot of coffee got spilled on the floor; I got to clean up poop twice from Wes' cloth diapers ( I usually able to catch the moment and put Wes on potty before he does his business); Max ignored me when I asked for his help so I resort to my old impatient self; Hubby came home late and I didn't manage to have lunch on the table until 5PM. By 7 PM I was done: tired. frustrated, feeling like a failure.  I went upstairs to sleep while my wonderful husband took care the rest.

Then the words of this songs rang in my mind:
A thousand times I’ve failed, still Your mercy remains
And should I stumble again, I’m caught in Your grace

"Really Lord? Even after what I did today?"

I opened my Bible and instead of condemnation He gave me GRACE:
"May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word."
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17



So I sing and pray the words of this song:

My heart and my soul I give you control
Consume me from the inside out Lord
Let justice and praise become my embrace
To love you from the inside out

Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart
Is to bring you praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out
