Still a Woman in Need of a Savior
So many times we want to be so much more than we really are. And, we expect our children to be so much better, faster and stronger, smarter and wiser than we were at their ages. I catch myself doing this all the time with my 17 year old. I know the pain that my own foolishness and sinful nature has caused and I want something better for her. I want her sheltered from the negative consequences of sinful behavior…but frequently I fail to stand up under the standards myself! Hopefully rather than seeing me as a hypocrite, she will see me as a mom who is still in need of a Savior. Once, for always, but also for every moment of every day.
