So many things in life present challenges in fulfilling the one true calling we've each been created to share: 

To love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our strength and with all our mind; and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Luke 10:27

It's easy to become discouraged when we try to do something and fail, whether it's keeping a clean and organized home, meeting our husbands needs, being there for a friend, or simply trying to obtain obedience from the kids.   

Before we get caught up in all sorts of self-doubt, feeling like a failure for this, or no good because of that, lets remember these 3 things which make up for everything else:

We are Accepted!
God allowed his son to die for us while we were still sinners.

We are Forgiven!
All we must do is ask, and His blood that was shed washes us white as snow

We are Loved!
He desires us to spend all of eternity with Him, and He will never leave us nor forsake us. 

Nothing we ever do (or don't do) can mess this up.  These are God's promises to us, meant to carry us through thick and thin.  Our worth is in Him alone, and we are more than conquerors through him who loves us.    

Will you believe it with me today?!
