“The Will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.”(Invisible Mom, Anonymous)
First of all, I did not write that poem. I wish I did. A friend sent it to me when my children were toddlers and I cried after I read it. I never needed something so bad at that moment when she sent it. That is what I call God’s timing:) Many of you commented that you really needed that poem at that moment. I am so glad to be able to share it with you and I thank Mary Gardner Phillips for sharing it with me in my time of need.
Battling any kind of mental disorder, physical disability or bumps in the road of life can send you into a tail spin. It is sometimes at these moments when you want to shake your fist at God and tell Him where to go. I am not trying to disrespect God but I know you know what I am talking about. So does God. He made us human. We are human, flawed. It is in our nature to get mad at someone even if that someone is God. He love us enough to forgive us when we lash out.
He is our Father. He understands. Just like when our children lash out at us. We sometimes are stunned at what our children are bold enough to say to us. But we love them and we take a moment to try and understand where this anger is coming from. One of my daughters is very strong willed and can turn on me in a New York minute. Sometimes I think she is still stuck in “The Terrible Twos”. I even asked my pediatrician because I was so upset. The doctor, Judith Habeeb :), asked me how she acted at school, church and with friends. I told her that teachers loved her. She was a perfect angel for them and often teacher’s pet. The doctor told me I had nothing to worry about. She said she felt safe acting out in front of me because she knew I would always love her and be there for her. It made perfect sense. That is how God is with us. I don’t profess to be an expert on God. No one is. But this is how I see Him. This is my experience with Him.
If it were not for God’s Grace I would not be the person I am today.
