Do you ever?

Do you ever had those periods where you feel that you can't get it right? Thankfully none of this will shatter the earth, but in the past few days, I've dropped the ball a number of times.
  • made a late payment on a bill because I had the due date wrong
  • forgot to place an order I needed to place by a certain date, even though the order was sitting there ready for submission
  • gave an incorrect tip (MUCH too little) to my sweet hairdresser, after he gave me a deal on my hair color and cut. Embarrassing. I will correct it.
  • Forgot to pay for Clayton's field trip today.
  • Forgot that I had an Arbonne Nation meeting last night until my friend Clare called to see if she should pick me up. This was not even on my radar screen.
Thank God that my righteousness is secure in Christ!!! I mean, I still may have to pay a late fee, but this won't affect me and my security.

Trying desperately to get ready for the women's retreat this weekend. My lecture is still not complete, and it's so challenging to find time to work on it. Focus and concentration...not so much a part of my life.

I'm really praying that the Holy Spirit will inhabit what I have to say. Oh, Lord, use me and give me the words to convey the wonder of your love for us, the beauty of our justification, the glorious fact that we are clothed with Christ and therefore righteous before you forever.

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it - the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over the former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Romans 3:21-26

  1. Kit! I'm so glad you found me! I'll be praying for you and your talk at the retreat. I'm sure it'll be great! You did a great job teaching me the truths of the gospel (and I could never thank you enough)!
