blameless, not faultless

What a precious reminder of a sweet note written by the Daughter, nearly 20 years ago…

I keep this little note written with much love and concentrated effort, framed to remind me every day of the seeds that were planted in the hearts of my children from the day I gave birth to each of them.  They were each prayed for even before they were born.

Looking at the handwriting of my little first-grader, the little “faults“- the little “mistakes” – are part of her, but I don’t focus on them because I know her heart, the heart GOD gave her and delights in her.

I too, I have my faults.  I have those things in me that are my bents toward what the Enemy wants me to believe about myself.  But I pray my Children, my Sweet Man, and others, SEE my heart.  Despite the BIG mistakes and the little mistakes I have made in my life, I KNOW I have been given saving GRACE. I may not be FAULTLESS, but I am BLAMELESS.

“that you may become blameless and harmless children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.”  ~ Philippians 2:15-16

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
