Today’s Reading: Ephesians 3:1-21
It’s incredible to think back to how much of my life I have always just tried to fit in. I wouldn’t be inaccurate in saying that most likely, in all aspects, I have just tried to appear like I have it all together. As humans, we try our best to fit in; many of us will face this-worldly battle until there is no battle to fight on this side of the earth anymore. Thankfully we know that Jesus says, You’re already in. We can stop the daily hustle, grind, and race that wakes you up by the alarm and keeps you going until you fall asleep. I wish and pray that I have this down, but it would not be honest. There are still times I try to fit in at my job, with my parenting, with friends, in our marriage, and in any other daily interaction that requires my presence.
Give yourself some grace. Turn every moment of insecurity to Him. We attempt and try to be the All-Star in all we do. We spend a lot of time trying to live by the rules people set for us. I have now seen days where I’m parenting and forcing the world’s expectations into them at a young age instead of just my love and His promise that takes care of every aspect of life.
None of the rules of life or the attempted All-Star parenting measures up to the power the love of Jesus has for us. If I can teach others and my family, I want to show them how to live in grace like Jesus and to walk in love like Jesus. I need prayer to be their number one model. Will you pray for me?
I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge– that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19
