Today is blog hop day over at Melissa Taylor's online bible study for Lysa terKeurst's new book, Unglued.
check it out http://lysaterkeurst.com/unglued/
To say the least, I think this book was written for me, and I am sure so many other women out there can really relate.
I never thought it was normal to be cool and collected one minute, and the next totally lose it. I lose count EVERY DAY how many times I become unglued, either with the kids, or the husband. It is funny, however, how well I can hold it together with others, but when it comes to family - I am like a time bomb.
I am such a Freak-Out Woman when it comes to the kids, and I do have to say that I am glad for do-overs. I know from reading this book that this is not what defines me. I can have a do-over, and another, and another. WOW. How great is that. I have become very good at apologizing. I love the words, "I'm sorry". I get to teach my kids that when things go totally wrong, that it's okay, you can apologizing and move on. A Do-Over. That the raw emotions are not what defines us. And, I hope over time they will see that even though we make mistakes, we can move on, and grow from it.
My little tirades have become fewer and fewer, but I still mess up. I am glad to know that God still loves me and that forgives me.
I am so excited to get deeper into this book. Only God knows what changes He will make in me through this, but I fully put all my trust in Him to do a good work in me.
Thank you Melissa and Lysa for allowing me to be part of this wonderful bible study.
Grace and Peace to you
