Unrelenting Grace



For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9


There’s nothing saintly about me. I’m just an ordinary mom living in an ordinary world (which looks a little wild and wacky at times with toddlers shaking things up.) I lose my patience. I lose my temper. I fail at being a godly mom in so many ways. But God’s grace meets me when I fall short. His grace is sufficient, even for a sinner like me. His grace abounds for you as well. 

God’s unyielding love makes me want to do better. God’s grace is the kick-start my heart, soul, mind, and strength need to pursue Jesus wholeheartedly, to love the Lord God with all that’s in me. 

You don’t have to be perfect. “By grace you have been saved through faith…” (Eph. 2:8). This is the good news! God’s grace covers our shortcomings. When we have faith in Jesus, our faith heals us. We have been commissioned to “Go and sin no more” (John 8:11). 

Walk in a new light of repentance today, as a mom set free. You have been set free from your former sins, and mom-failures. You have been set free from a lackluster attitude. You have been set free from your sins, in full. Go and sin no more.

Live life from the wellspring of God’s redeeming love and unrelenting grace. Put on the Fruits of the Spirit- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Adorn your life with joy, compassion, salt, and light.

Grace is God’s love for us, undeserved. We don’t deserve the honor and privilege of caring for precious souls, God’s own children, the littlest of his flock. Even so, we have been anointed as mothers for Christ’s Kingdom purposes. The Good Shepherd has handed us a staff. We have been called to direct and protect our children, to teach them right from wrong, and to demonstrate God’s love. Be a living example of Jesus to your children and everyone you encounter. 

Choose grace before perfection. When we have grace for ourselves, we are better able to trickle grace into our children’s lives as well. On this side of Heaven, we will be far from perfect, but let Christ’s love and perfection refine you so that you can bless the lives of others.


Dear Jesus,

I praise you for your unyielding mercy, your unconditional love, and your unrelenting grace. You are a good good Father, and I am forever grateful. In Jesus’ precious name, amen.


Steps of Faith:

  • Read the following Bible story about the adulterous woman, and notice Christ’s grace and uncompromised compassion:

When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

“No one, sir,” she said.

“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” John 8:7-11

Yes, when we fall we will land gracefully in His loving arms. I am so grateful for Jesus' unfailing love and eternal grace.
