His Love Covers Me

I watch this video and sometimes I cry when I watch it. It’s so beautiful and so moving and God’s love for me is just overwhelming. It’s so great it’s just incomprehensible.

Because here’s the truth. Here’s the real, raw unfiltered truth.

Sometimes my life is really hard. Sometimes I don’t know how we are going to make it through.

Sometimes our finances are overwhelming. Sometimes I don’t know how we are going to pay all our bills. There is a good and a bad that comes with your husband having a job that is 100 percent commission and the bad is that some months are really a struggle. And the worst part is that when we have months where we struggle, I don’t always know who I can turn to as a friend. Because so many people think that all our problems could be solved if I got a job. And maybe it would help financially, but at what other cost? I mean, Nick and I made this decision together for me to be a stay at home mom with a lot of thought and consideration. We have strong reasons for doing it and we feel those reasons are greater than money. And even if say I found that suggestion of getting a job helpful and new and not something I had ever heard of or thought of before, it’s not like I could go out find a job, interview tomorrow, get hired on the spot and get a paycheck the same day. It would take time and does nothing to change the immediate situation. But no, more than anything what I want is a friend who will encourage me, not a friend who will push their solutions to my problems on me.

And some days I feel like I fail as a wife. Like there are so many more ways I could be supporting my husband but I fail to find them. Or I fail to do them. Or I’m not always as supportive and encouraging and positive that I could be. And sometimes when he gets home from work the first thing I do is push Dominic on him so I can have a moment alone to myself instead of letting him have some time to himself after he’s just worked all day.

And sometimes I feel like a failure as a mom – that I don’t read to Dominic enough or that I don’t play with him enough. That I’m too laid back and hands off of a parent when it comes to allowing him to do stuff that other parents probably wouldn’t entertain. Sometimes it feels like he doesn’t want to be around me. Sometimes it is hard trying to figure out what the best for your kid is, when there are so many things where both sides tell you you’re harming your child if you do what the other side says you should.

And I guess I don’t say all this because I want to complain or throw a pity party or anything like this. I say all this because I want to be real about some of the struggles I go through. I don’t want to be one of those people who only ever shows the good side of things, leaving everyone else to assume they are the only ones who struggle.

Because I struggle too. Sometimes in big ways. Sometimes in small every day ways.

And that is why this song can make me cry. Because it is such a powerful reminder that his love covers all that. His love is greater than all my worries and stresses and problems. And that is a truly beautiful thing. I can lay it all at the foot of the cross.

Living imperfectly in his perfect love,
