My Mirror

Do you have days when you are painfully aware of the areas in your character with which you lack?  Today was one of those.  I see my three year-old’s heart and I grieve.  But then, I see myself in a “mirror” and come to the shocking *re*-realization that she’s learning from me.To tell you the amount of tears shed over this would be, well, embarrassing.  But, shed tears I did…and do.  I long, I ache for my little girl to love Jesus, to know that it is wise and good for her soul to obey mommy.  To have a love for His Word that is inspiring.  To have self-control.  To be kind to her brother.  To be patient. To be joy-filled.

Sigh.  But these are character traits that I need growth in as well.  So how can I teach her, show her, nurture her in the very things I lack?

Grace.  Help from the Holy Spirit.  The work of the Spirit in her little heart.

“My soul longs for your salvation; I hope in your word.”

Psalm 119:81
