{One Hundred Lessons} I Believe You Are Good

One Hundred Lessons is my story. It’s the heart of my experience in motherhood and all the things, well 100 of the things, I want my children to read and remember. These bits are my hope for the future and my cherished memories of the past. Most of all, they are the beautiful moments of today that I never want us to forget.

You can read all the post from the One Hundred Lessons series here.


I Believe-5My kids are not perfect and I never want them to think they are.

But they are good.

And I want them to believe that. I believe you are good. Do you hear me? You are good.

You have beautiful, kind hearts and every day you give me tiny glimpses of all the goodness inside of you. 

When you believe you are good, when you follow your conscience and the Lord’s soft whispers on your heart – you do good.

And doing good is what we need more of in the world. 

So, no matter what you did yesterday or the bad that crossed your mind today, choose to do good now, today. I believe you’re good and I know you’ll make the right choice. Every moment is a turning point to do the right thing. To let the good win. And you can do it. Sometimes it is hard. Sometimes it is ugly. Sometimes it seems impossible. But, YOU CAN DO IT.

As humans we’re full of sin. We make mistakes. More than we ever want to. But God has called us beyond our sin. To find good, to do good and to be good. Celebrate those small, beautiful things that embody goodness. Let it be your calling to follow the little whispers you feel in your heart. To reach out to those with tears, to feed those who are hungry, to be the listening ear to those who are hurting. 

Your goodness will never save you, that’s a whole other conversation. What your goodness will do is shine a light in a very dark world. And you, my little lights will do much shining. I just know. 

Be good, my babies. I believe you’re good. Believe you are good too.

    This is a wonderful post. And yes, believing our children are good sure goes quite a long way to them believing in their good-ness, too. I sure hope to always help Baby Boy to be good – to himself, to others, and in spite of any bad going on. :)
