Five Minute Friday – Again

People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Again.

Five Minute Friday


It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
Lamentations 3:21-24

It is morning. Again. Another day to try. Another day to do my best. Another day to love my kid and the world with Christ’s love.

By the end of the day, I can be weary. There is so much to do for all of us. And we do our best, but often fall short. I don’t want to get caught in the guilt or sadness of what I could have done better, should have accomplished, failed at. God’s mercy and faithfulness are enough. And they are new every morning. So I get to begin again.

Today, I want to see the world through Christ’s eyes. While cooking and cleaning and working and disciplining, I want to live as Christ wants me to live. I want to be the best version of me I can possibly be. With His help.

I am so grateful for my God who believes in second chances. And third chances. And fourth chances.
