Wednesday Matters
Everyday Backbone

I don’t sew, bake or volunteer for craft projects at school. I could feel like a lousy mom --- don’t the “good moms” have all of those skills? But let’s try and remember that God doesn’t make mistakes, and He created you uniquely and for a specific purpose. Sure, we all get stuck wishing we were someone else or had their skills, but how productive is that? How about we try this: if you experience a setback or a failure don’t fall apart, but believe God will use the experience to train you for the next step. Look at Ephesians 3:12, and read that through faith in God we can approach Him with freedom and confidence. He loves us. “Plenty of people have wishbone but there are too few with enough backbone.”  Once we’re rooted and established in His love, we can have the backbone to step out and be the very best of who He created us to be…every day.
