I was on vacation last week, and even with a migraine, it was great to get away.
However, my least favorite part of coming home from vacation is the piles of work that await us. Unpacking. Cleaning the van. Washing clothes. Not to mention getting caught up on blogging and other tasks that relate to being an author.
To top it all off, I ran out of one of my migraine medications the day before we returned. Then I found out the pharmacy was experiencing difficulty getting it in. Apparently their shipments are still being affected by Covid, even though my migraine and the medicine I need have nothing to do with it.
The problem is they aren’t able to get everything they order when they order it. I heard the same thing at the grocery store this week. While the initial panic is over, companies are still struggling to get their inventory back on track.
I don’t know where this week finds you, but I’ve been struggling.
Struggling to keep going.
Struggling to get back to normal (not the new normal, just our family’s normal).
I’ve been struggling to press into Jesus, even though I know that’s what my soul is longing for.
I’m struggling to keep working. Knowing the work I do makes a difference, not for me, but for Jesus. He uses it in ways far beyond I ever considered. But still, this week I struggle.If you're struggling, maybe it's time to get mugged by mercy… Click To Tweet
So this week, with my very late Grace and Truth post, I wanted to do something different.
I read a blog post earlier this week by Tullian Tchividjian titled “Mugged by Mercy,” and it’s the one I want to share with you today. Because it reminds me that no matter how much I struggle with life. No matter how much I struggle with sin. God’s grace and mercy still abound and His arms are open wide. I am His beloved daughter, and He is my Savior and King. When I fail, He has me covered. But more than that, He doesn’t just tell me to get over it and try again, He cares for me; showing compassion. When I feel like a failure, He reminds me it isn’t about me. It’s about Him.
If you have never heard of Tullian Tchividjian, he is the grandson of Billy Graham. He is a sinner saved by grace, and He isn’t afraid to preach that from the pulpit.
