… all that I am

20131010-210254.jpg

I’m hurting tonight. Feeling guilty & horrible.

I had a rough day at at work- the classroom chewed me up and spit me out today.

These are times that I completely hate who I can be.

Those are the times I thank God for grace and I realize how human I am. How much in need of Christ’s blood I am. How sinful and unworthy I am.

Those are the times I am grateful for God’s graces. Innumerable chances. His love. His forgiveness.

Tough days call for an even tougher God who can cover it all. Grateful for the covering, for the ability to hide in Him, and find the power within him to be better.

It hurts to know that I again disappointed and didn’t love up honoring God in all that I did today. Hopefully, tomorrow I will be better.

Hoping that the hugs, apologies, sweet words, and encouragement that I dole out daily outweigh the ugly moments.

… here’s to undeserved grace and love.

  1. Alaina thank you for your transparency! We all strive daily to please God in all that we say and do. The truth of the matter is that we will fall short! The blessing is realizing it and even verbalizing it! God is faithful to forgive us our sins and cleanse us of ALL unrighteousness!
