“Life can’t be about being good enough, but instead, believing there is God enough.”
– Ann Voskamp
I don’t know how Ann Voskamp found me on Instagram a few years back, but boy am I grateful for her e-friendship and the thoughtful packages she sends to my front porch from time to time.
This week she blessed us with homemade bread and her new book, The Broken Way.
On page 134, she talks about how “life is less about a formula, and more about faith”. Don’t you just love that?
Near the bottom of that page she also says that “parenting is logically complicated” and “theologically enlightening“. Two months ago I probably would’ve blown right past those descriptions, but today I can’t tell you how much they resonated.
With each passing day, I discover and rediscover that “mothering is at once the hardest and the holiest and the happiest“, and that it will undoubtedly be the amazing gift and most challenging responsibility/privilege I will ever be trusted with.
So, on this Thought-Full Thursday, I’m thankful for the reminder that “Life can’t be about being good enough, but instead believing there is God enough. God enough for whatever our own humanity needs grace for”.
