We were driving home from Story Hour at the library this morning and this song, Flawless by Mercy Me was playing. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I. HEAR. IT I weep! There is something so beautiful, healing to my soul about this song.
And I told my kids, “Kids, if you don’t get anything else I am teaching you, ‘GET THIS………….Jesus has made you flawless”. I am on this journey of homeschooling and we have good days and bad days. I have the QUESTIONS!! All of them!!!! They range from will my kids be alright on the other side of this journey, would they be better off in a school and on and on they go? I wrestle a lot with all of these things BUT in that moment it was sacred and they asked, “Mom, are you crying?” Yes, mom is crying? I don’t have to get all this stuff perfect. All He is asking of me is to be faithful and at this time in my life He has called me to this path. I know it, I have the confirmations from earlier this year but I am human and I still question.
I saw little Kate sitting in the back seat wiping tears from her little, chocolate dropped eyes. Did she understand it all? I doubt it but in that silence I knew we had a ‘holy’ moment! I saw CJ just look at me in complete silence, the van was still as a pin; that rarely happens!
I don’t know where your soul needs grace today but I pray that you will let the words of this song seep into your fibers! Cause the truth is we are all bumped, bruised and scarred!
