Grace over Guilt!

Grace over Guilt!

Kristen Roden
This idea of giving yourself grace rather than guilt has long stuck with me.

It sounds somewhat fluffy, ambiguous, cliche even.

But when I really examine my heart, and how much guilt actually does weigh me down, I realize the importance of this.

Trying to be a good mom to two young kids, a loving caregiver to my husband, maintain a relatively clean and cozy home, deal with bills, paperwork, phone calls, activities, ALL THE THINGS... it can feel a bit much. And of course, if I was more organized, if I got off my phone, if I did this better or that better or like Suzie does it... if I just did it differently, I'd be better. And the guilt sets in.

I know I'm better when I accept where I am, when I forgive myself for not meeting unreasonable standards, for gifting myself grace.
