A goat pooped near my foot today. I almost stepped in it. I could have blamed the goat for pooing. I could have stepped in the poo and blamed myself for being careless and inattentive. Or I can just accept poo for what it is, be glad I stepped around it, and move on.
You might be wondering why I’m talking about goat poo today. Maybe I’m just really tired and this is all my mind has left, LOL! Or maybe goat poo will make us laugh and let go of a little proverbial goat poo all around us…
My daughter has a meltdown over socks…poo
My husband leaves his dirty boxers on the floor…more poo
I leave my wallet at home on accident…poo
My client stands me up…poo and more poo
There is goat poo all around us. We can spend all day whining and complaining about it. We can blame others. We can blame ourselves. But at the end of the day, goats just poo. People disappoint us. We mess up. And then comes grace.
Grace allows us the freedom to admit fault, speak truth, accept consequences – and then MOVE ON!
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
