When you don’t have it all, make peace with that.
Cooking is my worst! Although he tells me I am the best, I know he is lying because kids never lie about food! If I don’t burn the chicken my ‘mac and cheese’ tastes like nothing, or my meatballs are still raw inside! I honestly try, but for some or other reason it’s just not working out for me.
I think we need to make peace with the things that we are not good with. We can’t be good at everything and then only focus on those things that we are good at. God made everyone different and we all have things that we are good at and things that we are not so good at.
Me, not being good at cooking, doesn’t make me a bad mom or wife. It doesn’t define me as a woman. I won’t waste energy on what I don’t have. Instead I rather choose to focus on what I do have. God has blessed me with amazing abilities to do plenty of other things brilliantly. If a decent meal isn’t part of that plan well then, we will all just be skinny in our house! haha
Never Give Up
Let’s try focus on the talents God has given us. Don’t get me wrong, I will never stop trying. I will prepare a meal every night, and I will always try to make it as best as I can, but I will put more energy and effort into things I know I am good at.
I can’t do everything and be good at everything, but I can give everything my best.
I’m not perfect, but my God is.
