Did you know blogger has a spell-check?
Did you know I couldn't think of a title for this blog post!?!?
Today, after both boys had just about pushed us to our limits, I turned to Greg and said, "Sometimes being a parent is a pain in the booty."
Something in my mind immediately turned the tables and I added, "I bet God says the same thing sometimes!"
After another moment of thought, I realized, yes, He has said pretty much exactly the same thing (well, without the unseemly reference to any body parts):
"... it repenteth me that I have made them (man)" Genesis 6:7
or in other words: "I'm sorry I made them"
In fact, he was so sorry he had made them, he was going to destroy them. (Genesis 6:7, again) (The ultimate 'I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it')
But, thankfully, "Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD." Gen. 6:8
Thank you, God for grace. Especially when I know I must often act as childish as my preschoolers. Whiny, disobedient, and stubborn at times. And yet, you love me more than I can understand.
"Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41:9&10
Isn't that good to know? I'm glad God's a better parent than I am. I want to be just like Him! :)
