Before we get practical about home management for the mommy years, I just want to remind myself and whoever else may need it of one thing. Whether you are a “cleanie” a “messie” or both depending on the day, our peace cannot come from whether or not we did our to-do list, were successful at organizing, or kept the kitchen clean. At the end of everyday, our peace and righteousness comes from one place alone: Jesus’ finished work on the Cross. Only One walked on the earth doing everything He was called to do. And on that list that included fasting for 40 days, healing the sick, teaching the multitudes, walking in every work set forth every single day was His death on a cross. And because Jesus said, “Not my will but Yours be done,” every sin we ever committed, are committing, and will commit has been paid for by Christ; and every bit of righteousness that Jesus walked in has been placed on us. This is the only source of peace and righteousness.
