Lately, I've been in a bit of a funk. Grouchy. Moody. A true punishment for my husband. When I read in proverbs about the quarreling wife, I can't help but think- my poor husband must wish he lived in the corner of a rooftop- he'd be better off there. Or at least less wounded. This was my thought yesterday when I read Proverbs 26.

Then, I was reminded of grace. Oh glorious grace. How you bless me. How you save me. It picks me up off the floor of self-pity, guilt and condemnation and reminds how much Jesus loves me! I prayed a prayer of repentance. I prayed for his spirit to work in my heart and make me gentle. kind. loving. patient. Seriously, He has blessed me with an amazing man and I cannot imagine my life without him.

And that fills me.
With grace.
I may not be very graceful.
But definitely

This post was brought to you courtesy of Five Minute Friday. A link up that only requires five minutes of your writing time and spits out an unedited, raw post. So set your timer and get writing. This was my first attempt. You probably can tell but it was fun and I look forward to joining in again next week :)

Five Minute Friday


  1. Beautifully spoken Sarah! I have felt the same way lately grouchy, moody and tired! AMAZING GRACE saves me all the time!

  2. I always wonder if I am about to encounter my once a month monster, but that is really not an excuse either. I love your post!! We are so lucky and blessed to serve such a loving God who gives us grace when we act like sheep (dumb and sinful). I feel bad when I am moody with my hubby to, but your post reminded me that I can always go to Jesus and ask for forgiveness and for more "fruits of the spirit." Oh, how I need that. By the way, welcome to 5 minute Fridays and you did great!

  3. Great perspective Sarah! Thank goodness for grace!
