I never thought I’d be a stay-at-home mama in my twenties, but that’s exactly what I am. It is the most frustrating, challenging, rewarding, fulfilling thing I have ever endeavored to do in my life, and I believe it’s exactly the path God wants me to walk in this season of my life.
My faith in God is my rock and my relationship with Jesus Christ is the source of my salvation, without which I am hopelessly lost and struggling in a world with problems at every turn. I have come to appreciate the phrase, “There but by the grace of God go I.” In my own words, “If Jesus hadn’t found me, I’d still be wandering blind.” If I share all the knowledge in the world I would still be a failure if I did not share the message of the Gospel, which in short is this: I am broken, I am lost. I am a sinner worthy of death and separated from God by my sin. But God sent his son Jesus Christ to live a perfect life and die the death my sins deserved, to rise victoriously from the dead so that I can live in the freedom of knowing my sin debt is paid by the blood of Christ Jesus. Not only now, but forever my soul will stand in the presence of God in his Heavenly kingdom. One day Christ will return to call His children home, and I want to be ready to meet my Savior, sanctified, purified, made righteous and new by Jesus’ sacrifice, and so can anyone else who chooses to call on His holy name, confess their sins, repent of them, and be made new.
