I am done with striving.
Striving to keep a certain kind of house.
Striving to be a certain kind of homeschooling mom.
Striving to be the perfect wife.
Striving to play the part of Executive Director.
Striving to write a novel.
Striving to write a blog.
Striving to be a better friend real and virtual.
Striving to eat better and buy healthier food with a tiny budget.
Striving to look good even though I don’t even have money for a hair cut.
Striving, striving, striving….
I. give. up.
His grace will have to cover my striving.
I am at the end of me and what I can do in every area.
Now it’s time to see what He wants to do.
I am tired.
willing to let go.
It feels like I just don’t care anymore.
But that’s not it.
I have just realized that in all my striving
I have lost my grip on grace.
And I can’t do it anymore.
Not without Him.
What if the only thing I strove for was Him?
Might I find that I am a better wife?
A better housekeeper?
A better writer?
A better friend?
Lord, you are all I need…for in You is found everything.
Your grace does not wear thin. There is enough to cover all.
It is sufficient.
