I wanna be mad at myself and dwell on how I failed. I wanna do the thing that i am good at….but i’m not. im not sticking in the past. I’m coming out as a fighter.
God forgive me for failing. I know I need to trust you.
What does this mean? Nothing. And I want you to remember – honestly folks saying this mostly for me – God will still love you. Its okay to not be perfect.
Hold up did I really just say that?
Okay…..okay…..now I am seeing how God is working. Man this is cool.
We are not gonna be perfect. We are gonna fail. This is part of growing closer to God. Its a part of being a Christian. Aiming to be like Christ yes, but giving ourselves grace when we dont.
Christ has given us grace – why shouldnt we?
He knows we are gonna fail. He knows all we have done and will do – and yet He still loves us. Why dont we? Why shouldnt anyone else?
Failing is part of this life of being a Christian – it sucks cause you are gonna realize you failed. But realizing you failed? that right there is the true win.
Know what I am saying?
38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38-39
