In choosing a passage of Scripture to memorize and meditate upon this month, I wanted a verse that would remind me of my Heavenly Father’s patience and graciousness toward me. I tend to be hard on myself, particularly now, as a mom who feels the need to “do it all” and do it perfectly. I need a consistent reminder that God will love me in spite of my inadequacies. In turn, I hope to act with similar patience and graciousness toward my precious little one.
“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” ~ Psalm 103:8
