There are many times in this world, that I sit and think to myself, “Am I truly worthy of the calling God has on my life”. In short, I’m not. Nor would I ever be worthy without Jesus’ blood. There are many times that I doubt myself, at times I look at the person that I am, and it seems sooo far are from the person I yearn to be. That’s where finding balance comes in. As Christians, we must find a balance from trying to do our best, but not living in judgement of who our best will be. Our best is the goal, the final destination. Our effort is the fuel that keeps us going, but ultimately the vehicle that gets us there is Jesus. With a destination, without a goal, and without a vehicle it’s pointless. I truly have no intentions of many people even reading my blogs, but I will admit this; I hope my blog will touch someone, and help them get closer to God.
As i reflect on today, and the many “failures” that have happened; I remember two things. 1) Our failures don’t define us, our Jesus is still the same Jesus regardless of what we do. 2) Our “failures” are there to help us grow.
